Remote Administrator - can be abused but ok if you installed it & have IP filters etc running
Primarily used for Remote Administration. Can be used illicitly, although in a business environment you're probably okay.

This is remote control software that lets tech support agents into your PC and view what is on your monitor. It also will allow them control your keyboard and mouse. I personally use this program quite a bit so I don't have to travel miles to fix someone's computer if they still have access to the internet and it is a simple problem. If you don't have a technician working on your computer, I would suggest you uninstall this program as you will have no use for it. Unless of course you are the one who installed it.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
