I have people who even remotely control my computer. He change my password. He change my router password.

 

He completely took control of my computer. He control my emails! This happen to me many times! Regardless what OS I am using.

 

He even monitoring me! I've got the guts to say this to let you know.

Hello Rusli,

 

From a security perspective it is indeed recommended to disable RDP access on systems that do not require it. Disabling RDP altogther will mitigate risks associated with RDP exploits or probes.

 

The specific instructions for various OS's are available from their respective vendor Knowledge Bases.

 

For Windows 7:

For Windows XP:

Note that RDP is not enabled by default, and requires adminstrator level access to enable it.

Hi,

 

I disable that but somehow someone using a third party software to do this.

 

They not only do it on his computer. He is using other equipment to do it as well.

 

He did this to me many times!

 

When I had discussion with other people in the store. Every one turns the same page as me.

 

Anyway...
