    Hi
    I have noticed recently that the box for Remote assistance in 'System Properties' was checked. It was the first time I had ever looked there and I am not sure how it got ticked. Does it come like this by default? I have never had remote assistance ever so just concerned at how this could have happened. I definitely never ticked it ever.
    Thanks

    Don't worry, nobody is trying to sneak into your computer. This is check marked (ticked) by default. If you don't want it that way, just uncheck it.

    For those that don't know:

    1. Win/Flag key + Pause/Break key

    2. Click "Remote Settings" on the left of your screen.

    3. Click the "Remote tab" at the top of the window.
