Hi, just downloaded a program called "who is on my wifi" and it shows me that there are 2,3 people are on my network. sometimes my network gets slower. I want to connect to their computer and check what is going on on their desk top. to actually see what they are doing. and who it is. Please help....

imac, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

    Nobody here is going to begin to tell you how to hack into another computer. YOu can do a Google search for that.

    Why don't you just do the logical thing and password protect your wireless network, which if you would have done so from the beginning, you wouldn't have this problem?????

    Also note, that this forum is for troubleshooting Apple Remote Desktop..Apple's app for managing networked Macs, and not related to your question.

    You would be breaking the law by attempting this, so as Templeton said, you're not going to get any assistance here in doing that. I agree with Templeton's advice: just secure your wireless router and then you won't have the problem.

    Just to continue this in another vein somewhat..i found a google search call HAHA google search html document on my computer desktop. I had enable for a short time, the google chatback feature on one of our websites and accessed it through gmail. Was it done through there and is there a way to protect against that kind of thing?

    Since this appears to have nothing to do with Apple Remote Desktop, Apple's software for managing networked Macs, I'd suggest you ask in a more appropriate forum, perhaps the Mac OS X Networking forum. You'll be more likely to get opinions and advice on this issue there.
