I really don't see any issues. If you are still doubtful, change all your router and login passwords.

So you're saying there is no other way he can possibly view my desktop? I'm very doubtful.

I see nothing wrong either. Change your setting as Golden and others have suggested. If you have proof someone else is logged in to your PC, post it.

I suppose someone in the same building could have connected to your router physically.

I already changed my login password and nobody else can connect to my router. There is also no control panel for it such as port forwarding but before, I was able to create servers and have others join with no port forwarding required (which makes me think this service isn't so secure).

Hi yk7.

Like I said nobody is going to go to all this hassle to get into your pc. As suggested above, new password, new SSID, enable MAC Filtering, Make sure your using WPA/WPA2 and if you really want to disable SSID broadcast, most smart phones and still pick up the SSID though. But If someone was to do this, it would be very hard to do so I don't think there is any issue here. Make sure your password is strong and more than 8 characters here is an example. (S37enF0rum$) Please mix them all.

Sorry but, SSID and MAC filtering? And what does WPA/WPA2 have to do with anything if I'm not connected to the internet over wifi?

SSID is the broadcast sent out from the wireless (basically the name of the network)

MAC Filtering - Basically only allows or denys certain network cards (Layer 2)

MAC filtering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you don't use wireless disable it in the router.

Just enable MAC Filtering. You will be fine
