I was using my wifes PC last night for the first time in ages. It is hooked up to our DSL connection that has no firewall, and running Win98SE. I had the computer on for about 1/2 an hour.
When I went to shut it down, Windows gave me a message “A file is open for a user” or something like that, and asked if I still wanted to shut down, which I did.
I looked at the DSL modem and there appeared to be some activity on it. I am sure I terminated the executable that I ran on her PC before I shut her PC down.
I’m not too concerned about security on her PC as it is just a fresh, bare install of Win98SE and no other files on it… other than my little Executable so I’m not concerned about any information leaving, but I was curious as to the message I received as I shut down.
