How can I tell if my computer  orweb surfing is being monitored?

How can I tell if my computer orweb surfing is being monitored? just got Apple Remote Desktop 3 at the office and want to know if Big Brother is watching me....how can I know?

If you set up your mac yourself and it was never touched by an admin, then you have nothing to worry about. If your IT dept set up the mac and gave it to you, then they could have a hidden admin account and turn on ARD without your knowing. well, you'd have to go into the Sharing preference pane to see if it's turned on. the icon is turned off and on from the ARD preferences within the Sharing pane.
it sounds like your account is an admin account so you have the ability to change the ARD client preferences. if your IT dept wants this on, you should leave it on so they don't take away your admin privs.

  • My macbook pro no longer connects to my TV with the mini dvi to hdmi adapter. A while ago the computer fell down and hit the cable. How can I tell if the computer is working ok. Doesn't show mirroring any more.

    My macbook pro no longer connects to my TV with the mini dvi to hdmi adapter. A while ago the computer fell down and hit the cable. How can I tell if the computer is working ok. Doesn't show mirroring any more. Was working while watching a movie but when I pulled it out from the computer and put it back in the system would no longer mirrorr the screen on the TV.

    The best option is an appointment at an Apple store genius bar.  The evaluation will be for FREE!

  • HT5228 How can I tell if my  computer has been infected with the Trojan?

    How can I tell if my computer has been infected with this latest Trojan (or with any Trojan)?  I did install the latest update to Java when I was told by my iMac that new software was available for my computer, which was just 2 or 3 days ago (first week of April).  Now it is being said that there was a Java Trojan.
    Many thanks for any replies!

    Log out and log back in, if you haven’t done so recently. Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the page that opens.
    Step 1
    Copy or drag — do not type — the line below into the Terminal window, then press return:
    launchctl getenv DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
    Post the lines of output, if any, that appear below what you just entered (the text, please, not a screenshot.)
    Step 2
    Repeat with this line (triple-click anywhere in it to select the whole line):
    find /Applications /System/Library/CoreServices -type d -name *.app -exec defaults read {}/Contents/Info LSEnvironment \; 2> /dev/null | grep DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
    The command will take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
    If you get no output from either step, you're not infected with any variant of Flashback that I know of.

  • How can I tell if my computer (2x2.26 Quad Core Xeon MAC Pro) and my Airport Base station(Airport Extreme 1Tb Time Capsule) are Gigabit compatible?

    All Mac Pro's ever made have shipped with gigabit ethernet.  The last non-gigabit tower desktop Apple made was the very first generation PowerMac G4's back in 1999.
    Similarly, all Time Capsules have been gigabit ethernet as well - never been one that was not.

  • How can I tell if my computer is using ethernet or wireless for downloads?

    Hi,
    My computer is hooked up via ethernet to my router (base station) which is connected to my DSL modem, and I also have my Airport on because I have extended my network with an airport express so I can stream music to my stereo across the room using iTunes.
    I've noticed in the Airport menu that my computer is connected also to my wireless network which I use for getting online with my iPad.
    Can I assume that my computer will use ethernet and NOT wireless for accessing the internet, downloading files, etc?
    How can I tell which network connection is being used? Are there tools for monitoring the network that would allow me to easily determine if a particular download is going over the ethernet or the wireless connection?
    Clearly, I want to use the hard line ethernet connection for everything and use the wifi only for my streaming music function for speed purposes...
    Thanks!!!!
    Elisabeth

    Hi,
    Internet is served on the priority basic from the System Prefrences Network pane.
    If ethernet is on top you getting it from ethernet if Airport and so on...
    So depending on internet speeds set the priority to access fast internet speeds.

  • How can I tell if direct-path insert is really being used?

    I have a number of INSERT statements with /*+ APPEND */ hints, that I suspect are not using direct-path insert processing. How can I tell (via the plan, via Enterprise Manager, whatever) if direct-path is being used?
    If it is not being used, then I can research why that might be, and try to resolve the obstacles there. But if it is being used, then I want to know that so I can focus elsewhere.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    The question of whether direct-path is possible with multi-table inserts has been on my mind...
    Moreover, in another forum post, we have eyewitnesses that it has happened at least once:
    APPEND Hint in Multi-table insert
    So I think that post (giving examples of Explain plans with multi-table inserts successfully using direct-path) answers my question.
    Mike,
    Thanks for that link. When I checked my example again I realised that it had a foreign key constraint between the two tables I was inserting into. (It was a demonstration of how to normalise an incoming denormalised address table, so converted a flat table into address/address lines). When I removed the constraint I got the multi-table insert.
    However, I followed this up with a check on the execution plans and for the 10.2.0.3 I was running noted the following:
    Plan reported after running the insert and select from dbms_xplan.display_cursor()
    | Id  | Operation           | Name | Rows  | Bytes | Cost  |
    |   0 | INSERT STATEMENT    |      |       |       |    30 |
    |   1 |  MULTI-TABLE INSERT |      |       |       |       |
    |   2 |   TABLE ACCESS FULL | T3   | 10000 |  1240K|    30 |
    ------------------------------------------------------------Plan reported after explain plan / select from dbms_xplan.display()
    | Id  | Operation           | Name | Rows  | Bytes | Cost  |
    |   0 | INSERT STATEMENT    |      | 10000 |  1240K|    30 |
    |   1 |  MULTI-TABLE INSERT |      |       |       |       |
    |   2 |   DIRECT LOAD INTO  | T1   |       |       |       |
    |   3 |   DIRECT LOAD INTO  | T2   |       |       |       |
    |   4 |    TABLE ACCESS FULL| T3   | 10000 |  1240K|    30 |
    ------------------------------------------------------------If you try to check for direct path inserts by looking at the in-memory plans, you might not see the direct load that is really happening. (Perhaps the a check that both / all the target tables are locked with TM mode 6 may give you a clue.)

  • How can you tell if your computer is synced w/ another one outside of your home?

    My husband moved out of the home and I think he has synced my computer with his girlfriend's. He has deleted his profile on my computer. How can I be sure he is not gaining access to info on my computer?

    You might want to have a computer professional or especially nerdy friend look at your PC, because some monitoring software is very hard to detect.
    If you use Firefox Sync, you might want to change your password.

  • How can you tell if a process step is already being processed?

    Further to my last note regarding assigned a process step to multiple users, how can you determine if the step is currently being processed by another user?  When opening a task which has already been opened by another user, the message "The following action has been opened by another 1 user(s)...."
    I would like to prevent the second user from making any changes to the object if it's already been opened by another user, hence this request.
    Thx!

  • How can i tell if my lost/stolen iPod is being used

    My daughter has either lost or had stolen her ipod.  how can we see if someone else may be using it?

    Look for charges/purchase
    Look for photos in your PhotoStream
    Lookf for posts make for accounts used on the iPod like FaceBook
    There is not good way really
    - If you previously turned on FIndMyiPod on the iPod in Settings>iCloud and wifi is on and connected go to iCloud: Find My iPhone, sign in and go to FIndMyiPhone. If the iPod has been restored it will never show up.
    - You can also wipe/erase the iPod and have the iPod play a sound via iCloud.
    - If not shown, then you will have to use the old fashioned way, like if you lost a wallet or purse.
    - Change the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report to police
    - There is no way to prevent someone from restoring the iPod (it erases it) using it unless you had iOS 7 on the device. With iOS 7, one has to enter the Apple ID and password to restore the device.

  • How can you tell if a computer problem is a hardware or software problem? My Macbook pro is always freezing!!

    I've been using my Macbook Pro for about 5 months. The first 3 months were great. But now it makes my life harder!!!
    It's always freezing.
    Any suggetions.

    Something doesn't sound right here. You say you have been using the MBP for 5 months and your profile say you are running 10.4.10. A MBP bought five months ago should have Snow Leopard 10.6. Of did you get this MBP used five months ago? Before we can help you must tell the straight story.
