Hey all,

I recently built a computer with the help of a co worker, after completion my co worker used a USB to install windows temporarily before I purchased a key.

I wanted to know if I should be concerned with any spyware,monitoring software, etc.

I have installed Norton and activated a licensed windows key afterward and everything seems fine.

Am i just being paranoid?

Here are two links you might want to read on windows privacy and settings:

You could also scan with malwarebytes on occasion
