Thank you for your responses, Jonathan. Is there a way for me to prevent my step father from making changes? Like a “super user” for it? I have no doubt the people who call are giving him instructions for giving them access through this tool. They are SO manipulative, and he is such a nice person, it just doesn’t occurr to him to tell them to go “fly a kite” (or something stronger). Once I have access, I would not want him, even, to be able to change the settings. I suppose I could set up myself with admin login on his machine, and give him only a user login. Would something like this work? He really only uses his computer for email and internet. I appreciate your answers so that I don’t go through the process only to find I can’t REALLY do what I want to - which is: protect my stepfather. Thank you again, Amy

My stepfather has fallen victim to these people multiple times. I live about 2 hours from him, so I can't just be there. He has issues with his memory, and they have figured this out - so they hit him multiple times because he forgets - even though I've done everything I can think of to help remind him not to do this. He has a service contract with a local company who he is supposed to call if anything is wrong - he's not to trust anyone who calls out of the blue to tell him something's wrong (????). Sigh. So, I am here looking for a solution. I would llike to be able to remote into his computer to see if someone else has access to it, and shut them down. Is that possible to do with this software?
