How can you tell if your laptop is being monitored by remote access or spyware?
If it is running slower than usual, usually says if your are being monitored or not. If you think it is spyware, run a full computer scan with something like norton. If you think you are being monitored over a network, check how much data your computer is transferring by using task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) and clicking on the network tab. If you are not downloading any files or using the internet and the graph shows above 5% for more than a few seconds you might be being monitored

remote access is where a computer is used from a different location to where the user is, this is useful to IT staff so they can administer a machine without even being in the… same building, home users also benefit from remote access by being able to 'dial in' to their home computers whist at work or elsewhere.

Unless you have a program like Teamviewer installed or it isn'tyour computer, you can't.
The easiest sofeware to use is teamviewer, it is free and so simple. You download it on your computers, log in, and control either of the computers you downloaded it to.... I …can even control my home computer from my droid phone. It is the best software.

You could install a "sniffer" program to see what traffic is coming to and leaving your computer. If you are adept enough to read the output, you can identify packets that are… going out that you don't expect, which may indicate that your laptop is being monitored. Your best course of action is: 1) don't do anything on your laptop that you believe you could get in trouble for, and 2) only use encrypted connections for your communications - like a VPN connection for example. That way the only people who can really monitor your computer are those you mean to communicate with and your communications with them will be (relatively) secure from outside monitoring.
You can get remote access to your company's network by using something like VPN (Virtual Private Network). Which will give you remote access to business files so that you don'…t have to take them all with you. Contact your IT department and they should be able to help get this set up on your computer.

It collects information about you and your business or organization to help advertising companies place better targeted advertising copy on the websites you visit. That is, ad…vertising that may actually be of interest to you. OK, in theory, it's a reasonable idea. You are going to be surfing anyway and these days websites survive thanks to their advertising, so wouldn't you rather see ads that may be of some relevance to you? For example, if you are sitting at a computer in New York, Spyware will tell advertisers your geographical position and hence target ads that are relevant to New Yorkers (restaurants and stores in the area or events taking place in the area). If you happen to visit the same website from Paris, those ads will be French ads.
Spyware on an iPhone? I've never heard of such a thing.
What it does is protects the computer from spyware that can slow down any computer and can even make the computer unusable. It protects the computer at all times and runs scan…s whenever the user wants.
You should run a computer virus and spyware scan.
You can get access to remote network monitoring through buying a software online. It allows you to monitor a network from any location. This is an advantage as you would be ab…le to monitor it from wherever you are in the world.
