    I'm running Windows XP. If I click on control panel>system>remote, then I uncheck the "remote assistance" box will that prevent someone from using a remote connection to access my computer? Thanks.

    It could just be a trick. Can you post the links here?

    Steven, what do you mean it could just be a trick? Do you mean the links she sent simply directed me into my own computer files and she never hacked in or had access? Thanks.

    would this effect wi-fi?

    That's what I mean, yes. It fits Occam's razor nicely.

    Through that mechanism, yes.

    Well, Somewhat I'd say. She said something like; "So you have a new girlfriend? Here you go .........Looks Like Deja Vue". And of course it was a link to my pix. In the Atlantic City album or file (the one link she sent to me) there are about 65 pix and only 5 of them are of my girlfriend. The rest of the AC pix are of the Boardwalk, me, hotels, the beach, other people, etc. That said, of all the pix in the computer most of the albums or files do NOT contain pix of my girlfriend because she takes most of the pictures. So this particular album contains more pix of my girlfriend than any other. Also, I do know who this woman is and I know her husband is an IT engineer at a major money center bank. She had said in the past she knew a lot about computers and her husband was a computer expert.

    U sure that these pics are not posted in some profile in Facebook, or MySpace or something like that? She could have seen it by your e-mail if so.

    Polett, No they are not posted anywhere on the internet....frankly they are too boring. In addition, when I clicked on the link and the new window appeared it had the "drop box" at the top; my computer > my documents > my pictures > picture package > Atlantic City.
