Hello,
I have recently been getting a message saying "administrator is trying to connect to this computer.If you allow,the connection will be reset.... etc". I am the only user of this computer and have not shared it with anyone to my knowledge.I have not set up an administrator and user account with separate passwords either.What does this message mean? virus or settings glitch? please reply

Unchecking the option in the properties tab worked :) . The message stopped some time after i posted this but now i think it wont come back.Will do a virus scan if it persists. Thanks so much for your time :) :)
