For quite some time now I will be on the computer and the mouse starts working by itself. I shut the computer down and wait for a long time before turning it back on. I  run virus scan and it shows nothing. I thought I turned off remote access and yet it still happens. What can I do?

G'day garganof,

Who did you grant remote access to ?

Rightclick "My Computer" then click Properties.
On the lefthand side click Remote Settings.
Next click the Remote tab if it's not open.

Then....under Remote Assistance.... UNTICK Allow Remote Assistance Connection to this Computer

Then ...under Remote Desktop TICK Dont Allow Connections to this Computer.

 

Click Apply....and OK.

Besides the mouse behavior, is there anything else going on that makes you think someone is remotely accessing your computer?
Is your computer a desktop or laptop? If laptop, are you using the touchpad or an external mouse? Also if a laptop, are you placing your hands in a way that they will control the touchpad while you are using the keyboard?

It is not a laptop it is a desktop and no I am not touching the mouse. It is definitely remote access. I watch as they move around and then I shut it down. No doubt that it is remote access.

Thank you for the information. I just wanted to cover something basic in case you were using a laptop.

G'day again garganof, first a little more info......When the mouse moves around the desktop, does it open any program?.....can you take control back

by moving the mouse yourself?....does the mouse plug into a usb port, ?....wireless?....ps2? (has a roughly round end ...not rectangular like a usb connector)....???    Does the starting of this mouse behavior coincide with anything that you can remember.....problem with a program....any other type of pc problem...    ??

I will remove you from my watch list

You will need to start a new topic if you still require assistance.

I found this topic in a search this morning. I am having the same issue. I will be working on the computer and a window pops up that someone is seeking permission to log in remotely. I deny. later, while not watching, I come back to a log in screen, and it will not allow me to log in as it says some one else is logged in and has denied me permission. I hard restarted and started looking for a solution.

 

I just downloaded the Toolkit mentioned and ran it.
