Hi all -
I'm not too brainy so please hang in there with me. I have two Windows 8 computers. One at work and one at home. They are on the same network as my father and my mother's home computers (I'm living with them now). Due to illness it is very difficult for me to get to my office and it would be much easier to work on my home computer. My big question is whether I can work at home and have it connected remotely to my work computer.
When I got my computer it was Windows 7. That was a long time ago and I had learned how to turn off all of the remote features so prying parental units couldn't see anything or get into my computers. The modem or wifi thingy or whatever you call it is in my home.
When I check services.msc and Process Explorer I see lots of things that say they are remote access and whatever but I don't know what to start and what would make my computers vulnerable to problems. I'm running the free version of Avira - boy that software takes it's time & seems to do a good job. I have it because of CNET's review. Please don't tell me to go back to the Windows virus program unless it's necessary. I already had a snippy discussion on another board about which is better. I run Malwarebytes every few days. I use CCleaner every few days. I also check Resmon for the hell of it and set a manual restore point every few days also. (I also back up to an external drive).
Any and all help is appreciated. I could start messing around but, no doubt, I'd screw up. Dawn
