Happy new year to you all.
I need some help with a problem thats been bugging me a while. I tried a couple of other forums but I dont think I asked the right questions.
Anyway here goes.
I have a friend who has access to my laptop and uses the guest account, he is pretty well clued up on computers and software etc, I myself am not.
Recently he asked me which browser I used, I told him chrome, I thought this odd so I checked out the history and found on Internet Explorer a file called CP. This led to a tab with a lot of cyrillic text and a title http ://www.bing.com/fd/sa/cp.html.
I also found a GZip file in the history under google which opened text with squares in it. This now appears under google automatically whenever I open the guest account with the heading compresssion test.
I have noticed my friend seems to know the odd thing that they may have found out from my pc. Rather than let myself get paranoid I want to ask whats going on but I need to know some basics before I do.
So the questions I need answers too are
Is it possible that what I have found is being used to check on what web pages I view etc and download and collect them.
If so will there be evidence in logs etc that I can find.
Can it be read remotely and regularly or does it have to be done locally and transferred by email or to a phone with internet access.
I am on windows 7 by the way.
Your help would be much appreciated.
