Do a wipe and reload of the OS to remove all prior traces of software and start with an OS you can trust again. No need to "destroy the computer". This implies it has been PHYSICALLY compromised which, of course, it has not.

First of all, RealPlayer hasn't really been a thing for almost 10 years now. It's highly doubtful that your father needs it for anything. If he does actually use it for something, I would highly recommend you wean him off of it, as even in its day it had a reputation for being a crappy program loaded with adware. Second, I would be highly suspicious of ...

One very convenient and free solution is to install the TightVNC (www.tightvnc.com) server on your father's computer. This application can run on the background and can be secured with a password. When configuring the server, it is possible to turn off the message that asks the user for permissions, thus requiring no intervention from your father. Just ...

VNC is a largely insecure protocol. If you are not going to add a security layer like a VPN, you are better stick to something like teamviewer. Most VNC clients do not support encryption by default and many do not support it at all. That is enough for me to avoid it completely unless it goes though a VPN or some other other sort of ssl tunnel. In the ...

What you're asking is not possible with most remote control software packages available. It is very bad practice to be able to control a pc without a users consent and users usually really dislike the idea of anyone being able to view their pc without their knowledge. For that reason, most programs will have some form of protection against "taking over a ...

If I got this right - isn't this number really low considering how ubiquitous Windows is? That would be 999,999 possible combinations specific moment in time, a code that is generated by a server, so it knows what are the active codes. The minute the code is used to connect to somebody else, it's put back into the code rotation, and can be used again. ...

I searched online and I found this forum post. "TrueRock2" replied on February 7, 2014: The "Easy Connect" feature of "Windows Remote Assistance" requires IPv6… Microsoft disabled the IPv6 tunneling server that supported "Easy Connect" in the middle of 2013 and this disabled the functionality of "Easy Connect". I assume the reason Microsoft did this ...

I recently created this PowerShell solution which can be used when need to open a Remote Assistance session and type in the elevated UAC credential that cannot be share with the end-user being assisted. Technically you can run just the Invoke-Command and point it to the remote computer, and then ensure the Set-ItemProperty has the appropriate 1 or 0 value ...

You need to turn on a Group Policy setting and/or download a hotfix: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/asklar/archive/2012/03/14/remote-assistance-and-uac-prompts.aspx However, in order for this to work properly in scenarios that prompt for elevation (i.e. UAC prompt), you have to enable a certain group policy: User Account Control: Allow UIAccess ...

At a bare minimum, actually interrupting the network connection will end their mouse and keyboard control. If you have only a wired network connection, pulling out the cable is guaranteed to end the session; with wifi, if your computer has a physical switch, turning it off will end the session. Likewise, shutting off the computer will terminate the session; ...

The standard utility to do that is VNC. There are many VNC servers and clients; this Web page is Ubuntu's guide to it.

Yes, but the user will still have to grant you access. You the admin needs to be in the group "Offer Remote Assistance Helpers" on the users computer (make that happen through a GPO). Then you can simply push an assistance offer through the GUI of MS Remote Assistance or use this command line: msra /offerra NameOfComputerWithUserInNeedOfHelp Your user will ...

You can use the built in Windows Remote Desktop and apply the concurrent users patch to enable two people to log in and use the PC at the same time. I've used it to update software on the HTPC without preventing someone from watching TV at the same time. http://lifehacker.com/5873717/enable-concurrent-remote-desktop-sessions-in-windows-with-this-patch

I managed to solve this particular issue, although my IPv6 is still not working, for other reasons. First of all, I uninstalled ZoneAlarm Free Firewall. I'm not sure if it was causing this problem but I've read about it causing problems with IPv6. The Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter was in fact missing. I have no idea how it got missing, other than ...
