    Hey guys.

    So, a couple of days ago I was just on the net, and suddenly my trackpad goes wierd, I try to go left, but it goes the other way, I try to click on stuff and it doesnt work, etc.

    Then I just take my hands off my trackpad and just watch my screen, and I think someone was on my computer aswell as me? They where just opening safari, making folders on the home screen. They didn't type or anything.

    I turned my computer off and it still happened.

    There are 4 people on my house using computers, and my dad is on a mac. I am thinking he did it just for a joke, but said it wasnt him when I asked him.

    Any answers?

    Did you have ichat open? You can "share your screen" via ichat. There are other various ways to do it though that is the easiest. A restart should kick anyone off and prompt you when they request access again...

    Turn off Screen Sharing.
    System Prefs>Sharing. That should avoid this from happening anymore.
