Programming
Can my roommate get control of my computer through our shared home network?

Question Description

My mouse/cursor won't obey my commands sometimes. It usually happens when he is alone in his room. If I try to change my configurations, he comes out of his room and tries to see what I'm doing. Then he goes back to his room and the mouse goes crazy again for a while. It happens several times a day. What is he doing and how can I stop it?


Final Answer

right-click on "My Computer" select "Properties", then disable "Allow Remote Assistance", and disable "Allow Remote Desktop", another thing to test if he/she is really trying to spy or watch what your doing, is simply to disconnect your PC from the network. Also go to your control panel to "Uninstall" and see if there is any program/application like PC Anywhere and such. You may also want to let hi know, that if he/she is doing this, it is a violation of privacy, and is also considered illegal.
