Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the “attack” is coming from outside of your domain, and you have the right kind of access logging on your router, AND you know what time your computer was forced to restart, you might be able to narrow the list of possible sources. If it is coming from INSIDE the domain you might has a bit more trouble. Are you <i><b>SURE</b></i> that these restarts are the result of someone else on the network? There are many other <b><i>more likely </i></b>causes for this kind of behavior, including hardware problems such as overheating, or loose connections of cables and boards that will cause the systems to restart. You could also be having power problems, if your incoming power is “browning out” that can cause your system to spontaiously restart. You might also have some kind of virus or spyware that is causing your problem. I’d check these more likely causes first.
Good Luck

Get and enable a firewall on the computer. It will log attempts to communicate with this system. Provide more information when you have those details for additional assistance.

This is relatively accurate…at times.

It could also be a good idea to disable the administrative share that windows put on hard drives by default (but you have to be sure that your IT department does not use it for administrative and support purposes).
Many programs exist that use these shares to take control of a remote pc, and in most cases, this programs are not detected by firewalls, anti-spywares, anti-viruses, etc…

You might want to check also, if some vnc server or similar is installed and running on your system….
