I'm using Vista SP2 Home Prem.
I received some false positives from AVG regarding a trojan (www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/490480/trojan-horse-generic32agei-avg-detection-cannot-be-removed/). However, while trying to determine if it was a fp or not I received a remote desktop connection request from an unknown website. I'm sorry, I didn't screenshot it and I don't remember the url. I believe I was on the VirusTotal website at the time.
I thought this might be related to the trojan problem (which was later confirmed to be a false positive). So I closed the request and checked to see why remote access was turned on. Remote access was turned on for 3 of my computers and I did not enable it. It is, apparently, turned off by default. Using instructions found at http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/turn-on-remote-desktop-in-windows-vista/, I turned remote assitance off for all 3 computers. I also went into advanced and also de-selected "allow this computer to be controlled remotely."
I've attached images of those selections because the remote desktop options don't appear for me as they do in the help article. Is this a vista/7 difference?
Is there anything I should do to in addition to virus scanning and turning off remote access?
Can I tell if my computer was ever accessed in this manner before?
What could've turned remote access on?
Any suggestions or advice?
