I have two computers, both with XP, sharing the internet with a hub. I put a file in a shared folder, and I could access it from the second computer, does that mean others were able to access it?
I turned off file sharing on the folder on both computers, and when I try to access them I get an error saying I cant get to them.
Also, when I went to network connections (desktop icon), I had a folder for my computer, and the other one hooked up through the net ( a folder for it as well), and a third one with an odd name, that suddenly dissappeard, could that have been someone tyring to get to my files?
I have not networked them, they only share the internet with the hub.
Having left file sharing on, could anyone have done anything serious to my computer, I didnt have any importnat files in there that were important.
