These programs serves couple of purposes. The main purpose is to help IT guys to connect to the network or individual computers to solve problems/install softwares remotely so they do not have come in. It can also be used as "monitoring" program. The IT or BOSS can see exactly what you are doing on your computer. I am not too sure of this program but most of these type of programs has a logging program. It will record what you did, are doing and save it in a file and send it to the Boss or IT. However, I do not know if it is set up that way on your office network. Since you have an icon on your launch bar that tells you if they are connected or not; you will know when they are watching you/monitor the system. So, just don't do anything bad while they are connected
. If I am the Boss, I would hide the icon so you won't know if I am watching you or not. They are ways to bypass these type of things but then again, when they can't connect to your comp, they will ask you why.....
Hope this helps
So, anyone doing anything bad at work? Surfing xxx sites? Junk emailing? Installing games? Or crash the network all the time?
