I have VNC installed on one of my computers and that computer was custom built..

Can the person who built it see what Im doing?
Or does VNC just provide interaction from one PC to another?

Because I feel real uneasy about someone seeing what Im doing.
Not that Im up to no good of course :thumbsup: :flowers:

But if they can see what Im doing.
How the hell do i get that thing of my machnine??

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system which uses the RFB protocol to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.

VNC is platform-independent — a VNC viewer on any operating system can usually connect to a VNC server on any other operating system. There are clients and servers for almost all GUI operating systems and for Java. Multiple clients may connect to a VNC server at the same time. Popular uses for this technology include remote technical support and accessing files on one's work computer from one's home computer.

The above quote taken from: here

So the answer to your question, "Can the person who built it see what Im doing?" depends on what purpose they installed the VNC software. It also depends on what settings they used. They may or may not have access. As far as how to remove it, it depends on what specific VNC application you have and if it shows up in 'add/remove' programs in control panel.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

Thank you for your response.

After reading that it has made me somewhat uneasy about having this program installed on my computer because I have no idea what his purpose was when he installed it.

I will go about uninstalling sometime today.

But before I do,
Is there some way to tell if he can see what Im doing?
