Windows 7: remote assistance box auto ticked - worried.

remote assistance box auto ticked - worried.

I have noticed recently that the box for Remote assistance in 'System Properties' was checked. It was the first time I had ever looked there and I am not sure how it got ticked. Does it come like this by default? I have never had remote assistance ever so just concerned at how this could have happened. I definitely never ticked it ever.

Yes, it is checked by default. You can uncheck it if you want.

As for your other thread, I'll post a guess.
