Did you by chance buy this machine from someone named Kenny?

The first but there is the hostname of the machine. You can change it by going to System Preferences > Sharing > Computer Name.

That machine isn't really yours until you do a complete wipe and reinstall of the system and restore of your stuff. "Kenny" might have put all kinds of keyloggers or other compromising software on there.

You need to get your original system DVD and nuke and pave to be sure that anything of his is gone.

I found a piece of paper behind a box with the following on it at my office (My husband & I are co owners with his brother. We have an office manager on staff full time to do the day to day stuff)


C:.>

chkdsk'space/p'space/r (now the about the 'space, I don't know if that means a space

with the ' only or the symbol and the word)

so it might also be: chkdsk' /p' /r

under that is the phrase: has to run in recovery console

Does anyone know if this is a keylogger code or just a code for C prompt on an old HP computer???
Thanks

chkdsk is a Windows tool for checking disks for problems. And, if this is on a piece of paper, why the concern?

Can't help with this problem but a tip for the future. If you title your post with something relating to the problem rather than "Help Me Please" you may get more responses.

I was concerned only because I found it in the office with the computer we do our payroll on. And also because I am not familiar with key loggers, only have read about them.

That note on the paper is for a Windows computer, not a Mac.
