Annoying Network Problem

Hi, Can anyone help me my pc at work is on a network system and someone is accessing me and removing desktop icons/opening cdrom drawer/controlling my mouse and windows pop up with messages about how they have control of my pc. OS is Windows 2000 is there a way to stop this.

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.
