Hi crew,

This morning I opened my laptop to two Chrome tabs I didn't open. And not just a "new" tab. One was a webpage to PODS Storage, and the other was looking at the "Foreigner" movie on Redbox. Two very specific pages on two different websites. This happened at 6:30 this morning (I accessed the history and saw the tabs had been created at 6:30 this morning). I came downstairs and opened my laptop at 7:30 am. My husband was awake at 6:30 and there wasn't anyone else here using my laptop.

Of course I got suspicious of remote access, and ran an event log. Nothing shows at 6:30. The only suspicious entry was at 3:45 a.m., but at a closer look, that was when my computer was running updates and backup (which I had set it to do).

I ran Malwarebytes looking for spyware but nothing was detected. Is there something else I should do? This is freaking me out!

Thank you! I didn't notice anything unusual in the mac addresses connected to the network. Ran virus scan, malwarebytes, etc., nothing came up. It's so strange that that happened!
