Who is connected to your system

If the connected systems are in the same room, it is easy to see, which system is currently
connected to the
shared resources on your system. But if some systems are in different rooms,
maybe even on different floors (like: the kid's room upstairs), you like a tool to tell you any
connection, which is under Windows95/98/ME the "Net Watcher".

Check in the Control-Panel in "Add/Remove Programs", tab: "Windows Setup":

under "System Tools" in the "Details", that "Net Watcher" is installed. If not, install it.

You can start "Net Watcher"
under "Accessories" as one
of the "System Tools"

"Net Watcher" offers you 3 display modes:

By connected Users:
showing the users connected, their system and any open file. You can disconnect a user.

By Share defined on your system:
This list is a nice overview, on what resources have been shared on your system
(with the path of the shared resource), and on selecting a shared resource, it will
display the network connections and open files

By Open files:
To avoid data-loss, you should not shutdown your system, while other systems on the
network have file in use ("Open files") on your system.

Somebody is connected to your system and you like to shut it down ?

You could start yelling at the stairs ("Hey, disconnect.....") or you send an alert message
by using
Pop-Up messages.
