Friends, lets assume someone plugs usb flash, any memorycard or anything soever while i am gone and my laptop (Dell Inspiron) is locked with windows password. I belive there is no way for anything to be installed in locked state, am i right in this?
However, lets say i fail to notice the flash (specially if its some tiny), or lets say there is cd or memory card inserted in (someone put it on puropuse), and i unlock it and start working, can any bad spy program/keylogger or anything like that installs instantly when i unlock if the flash was plugged while i was gone? Will any notification/pop or anything appear showing me something is being installed. I've never changed any options on the autorun settigs, so is windows 8 by default starts autoplaying usb flashes when they are pluged or it requires specific changes to do that. I fear beacause i used to leave my laltop in not so friendly enviourment a while ago. If you have any anwers i will be glad Thanksfe
