While typing a post this morning on Google Chrome the screen went grey, the sort of thing that happens when a computer freezes. Up popped this little tan box telling me that I had just logged out from another location. It then gave me the option of somehow logging back in or canceling the notice, I suppose.
Now I know I hadn't logged out from another location because I have only one location. Just the one.
I called my IT friend in Vancouver, read to him what I was seeing on my monitor, and asked if he knew what was going on. He's been in the business, mainly in networking, for almost 30-years and, during its good years, was Nortel's network guy for B.C. for a few years. He knows his stuff.
My buddy said he'd never seen such a thing and began the remote access process so he could get into my computer. For the first time ever that remote access software balked. It would not let him in. It would not even let me push the screen button to proceed on my end.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Is it possible that somebody elsewhere is logging in to my computer? I know I've been hacked more than once. In one case a hacker got in to very successfully take down both my GoDaddy web sites.
