    I get the followin warning sometimes when I attempt to
    sign off

    "There are 1 user(s) connected to your computer. Shutting
    down will disconnect them. Do you want to continue?"

    I have no visible shares. Any suggestion on how to
    determine who is connected to my PC?

  2. Turn off file sharing via the Control Panel / Network. If
    someone complains then you will know who it is. If
    no one complains then it's probably just as well that
    you have plugged a big security hole.

  3. Use NetWatcher. To install it, go to Control Panel | Add/Remove
    Programs | Windows Setup | System Tools. To run it, either click
    Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Netwatcher or click
    Start | Run, type "netwatch" in the box, and click OK.
