I went to turn on my firewall per instructions on another post, and when I got to the Network connections in my control panel, I noticed I have 4 connections
3 look familiar
1394 connect firewalled
local area connect firewalled
wireless connect firewalled
But the one I am not familiar with and wonder why I have it listed is:
when I right click properties and services it comes up with
four boxes that say windows media format SDK Explore.exe
and a fifth box that says Windows media format SDK (wn player.exe)
"This connection allows you to connect to the internet through a shared connection on another computer
Is this the tv/media center on my computer? Or is some other computer possibly sharing my computer? (which shouldn't be)
Also how can i tell if someone has hijacked my computer.
