To check if computer was connected to someone else

Hey everyone

I just found out that my laptop had this app called teamviewer installed.

I deleted it instantly without knowing what it is.

Later I found out its a app with which you can pretty much have control over someone else desktop.

I am really nervous and I dont know if my laptop was being spied upon or not since I used to leave it open a lot of times at public places.

I decided to check the log files which were still there but couldnt make out anything from it

All I see are commands like these:

CKeepAliveClientClient::HandleStartKeepAlive: going online not wanted!

 SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 32787

SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 32787

 SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 32787

 SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 32787

SERVICE_CONTROL_SESSIONCHANGE session=1, statusCode=WTS_SESSION_LOCK, console=1

SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 4

 SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 4

 NetWatchdog: OnStandby going to sleep

 NetWatchdog: Completely disconnected. Going offline.

KeepAliveSession::StopKeepAliveInternal: no remote session

  NetWatchdog: Internet is now disconnected

 CKeepAliveClientClient::HandleStartKeepAlive: going online not wanted!

SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 32787

 SERVICE_CONTROL_POWEREVENT 32787

 NetWatchdog: Completely disconnected. Going offline.

KeepAliveSession::StopKeepAliveInternal: no remote session

  NetWatchdog: LAN is now disconnected

So can someone please tell if my computer was connected to someone else's all this time through this app or not
