is it possible for someone to install a key logger from a guest account?
no you have less priviages then a "user" so no
They could probably log keys pressed by other people using the guest account, but that's about it I think.
i dont know what the deal is then.
someone used my guest account for a few days and now my computer is jacked.
i deleted the guest account.
but when i launch itunes, utorrent, or DC i get the following error message.
Windows - No Disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive .
Make that error pop up again, and then PrintScreen it and paste it into MSPaint. Post the picture here so we can see what it looks like.
i highley doubt it
Are you actually using anything that would require a disk to be in a disk drive?
This isn't the old "floppy disc is still in the drive" thing is it?
Back when I still used floppy's that used to get me all the time.
all of my music is stored on my external drive. the drive is connected and i can play music.
this pc is about 2 months old and didn't come with a floppy drive
Why? Can't they set up processes to be started at login?
How do keyloggers capture keys anyhow?
Is your external drive assigned to C?
you could always buy an external hardware based keylogger...not a bad thing to have anyways, if you need to steal a teachers username and password...
this is random.
i did a system restore and when i reconnected my external drive it came up as I and not J. i then launched utorrent and it worked.
so it must have had something to do with the drive mapping.
you should of never enable the guest accoount
i read somewhere that you should create a separate account for all your downloading needs. this would limit the amount of damage spyware could do to the pc.
I seriously doubt it would make much difference either way. All you really need is a realtime virus scanner that can scan both programs in RAM and files saved onto the hard drive -- which is to say, any virus scanner nowadays.
not on a guest account
