In my office yesterday, we had a power blip and all of our computers restarted. Upon restarting, I had a dialog box that an application was installed and my computer required a restart. I mentioned this to several colleagues and none of them had the same happen.
I guess I can't post a screenshot image, but here's what it said:
"A newly installed program requires this computer to be restarted. Please save your work and restart your computer. Your computer will automatically be restarted in 2 hours 53 minutes 1 second."
I restarted again and that took care of the message.
I don't recall installing a program recently, though we are asked to log off rather than shut down every day. I can't be sure the last time I even rebooted the computer.
Anyway, I have no illusions about a "right to privacy" when it comes to my company computer. I'd just like to know whether they are spying on me or not.
What can I do to see if they've installed spyware on my computer?
