Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Another way to tell if there is someone else logged on to your computer is with task manager.
In XP Home, there is a "users" tab that will tell you if there is someone else on using the fast user switching function.
Also, for all XP versions, under the processes tab, you can do a "view"=>"select columns" and check the "user name" column to display. Besides your name, you normally might see "system", "local service" and "network service". Also, certain services may run under alternate User Names. But you should be able to tell if there are any user names that are suspect.
I have 5 user accounts on this machine and even when they are all logged off, except for me, I still get that message shutting down. I just figured it's a bug...I know there's no remote sharing of any kind. It happens everytime I shut down or restart. I don't worry about it.
lmao...I spoke too soon.....if I "log off" my account, I don't get that get that message. You ever feel stupid after somethin you said?? lol
No one believes that it is possible for someone else to be loged on my computer. But then, where are all the music files coming from? Help!
if you have magic song files on your system you have been hacked. get a firewall and a good do an online scan from pest partol or panda.
I would like to put a friend of mine on MSN and he has given me permission to so hopefully I can do it and I don't see why not. Please get back to me as soon as possible as it is really important that I get this account for him.
what is the ASP.net Isee in my users list? Can I delete it?
i've read the article above and it has been very helpful...i wanna ask one thing though, which is unrelated to this article but i'm hoping to find an answer here. i'm just wondering why spywares/malwares/trojan still get into a computer even if there is an anti-virus software already installed.
i hope you can solve my confusion on this one
Hi! I have also had the message someone is logged onto your computer bla bla..... I suspect that someone is in my computer but i have ran the recommended checks and found nothing so far.Any more suggestions anyone?
Im gonna sound paranoid here but is it also true that your phone can be tapped using stealth software?
Download a utility called as psloggedon and you can figure out who has logged on to your system. you will get the software from microsoft technet.
To post a comment on "Why do I get "There is another user logged onto your computer" when I shut down?", please return
