Someone is logged on my computer

February 5, 2006 at 07:28:12
Specs: Windows XP Home SP2, CPU 2.ooGhz RAM: 256

A message has been appearing saying "Someone is logged on your computer". I have just had Windows Xp reinstalled by a local shop technician. That message had never appeared before, Does it mean "they" might have installed a device allowing them to log on my computer. I have two users account with password (different from the ones the technician needed to do their work. They had added an ASP.net user account that I cancelled.
I also found a webcam shortcut which I never installed.
I have the free AVG antivirus as well as Norton on a trial basis, and the windows spyware.
Is somebody else able to access my computer?

Maybe not. To find out for sure, first kill Windows Messenger

Have they enabled remote desktop on your PC? Check by looking under Control Panel/System - then the 'Remote' tab.

They didn't create the .net account.It was added with the install of microsoft .net framework which i think was included in one of of the windows updates a little while ago.

That's not always the case. On my clients PC I sometimes install the ASP net user account on my own initiative in order to access certain files at M$ sites.

No yours wasn't wrong. You will see Net framework available if you use Custom method instead of the Express method of Windows Update. Under custom you will get Optional Software Updates, Optional Hardware Updates, and Beta Software (if available)

It was installed on mine by the updates which i usually don't look over first.So if his computer has all the lastest updates,wouldn't it automatically be there or no.

Yes it will be there. All Windows updates are installed automatically once you hit the install button.

If you wouldn't mind, could you explain in your own words the benefits or disadvandages of net framework.I'm sure some of the readers including myself would understand it easier coming from you instead of microsoft who seems to generalize alot.It would be helpful.Thanks.
