Extracting Files From Vista

Recommended Posts

<_< I am not familiar with the many features of Vista or computers...what are they really capable of?

I think my partner somehow extracted files from my computer (I 'sleep' my laptop whenever I leave it...no passwords shared).

I have Vista as does he. I noticed a new zip file icon on his desktop and I checked the properties and it read ...from another computer; but I was too afraid to try and open it further.

 

Is this possible and how can I get into his computer and by pass the password to check.

Seems like the problems goes past computers. :)

Why do you have to get into his computer to check it if you can see the folder on your desktop? Just open it and see if there are files on it that are yours.

You might want to go into the Start/ Control panel and check your Network setting to see what your file sharing settings are.

 

Then you might want to change your password to something random that cannot be guessed. You have no idea how many people use 'password' as their password or their pets name.

 

Then you need a good book on Vista because there are a lot of settings than can affect how information is shared.

 

The simplest way to set your mind at ease would be simply to ask your partner what the file is ...... or shut down your computer and put the laptop where no one else can access it.
