    Hello all, I have made a living for years in the big iron mainframe world. You will probably notice my terminology will
    Sound strange. I have only been in the pad world for about a year. I was in a public wifi spot today, it looked like someone remote controlled my pad. My URL bar started to be filled with random characters. So far I've read the first 4pages of a remote control discussion from 2011. This looked like the right place to look for answers/suggestions.

    Thanks
