Windows 7: Remote Desktop concern

Remote Desktop concern

Hello, I believe someone I know is trying to remotely connect to my computer, even though I don't have much evidence. I went ahead and disabled the Remote Desktop services.

Also, is this suspicious at all? I noticed that the bottom-half is completely empty. Thanks for reading.

The empty bottom half is because the Windows edition, Starter, Home Basic and Home Premium doesn't even includes the remote desktop service (it does includes the client however) so no one can ever connect to your computer. It's normal.
About the remote assistence thing, if it's disabled as pointed out in the screenshot, there should be no problem, at least with the built-in tools. But if someone is really trying to sneak into your computer, they might have installed something else (Teamviewer comes to mind, for example).

But anyway, what is your suspicion exactly? What do you see to make think that?
