If I were you I'd talk to your IT support at work - chances are they're the ones controlling you, and you shouldn't try to stop them (you may end up missing out on security patches, new applications, etc). If IT is not the ones controlling you, then I'd *really* be worried. There are a number of different programs for remote control out there (PC Anywhere, SMS, VNC, Terminal Services, etc).

You need to talk to your system admin, unless ofcorse you pissed him off.  Aside from him doing this to annoy you, it sounds like you have a back door virus.  It allows other people to control your computer.
