    Is it safe to allow someone to have access to my computer with Teamveiwer? If he want to leave a keylogger or trojans in my PC will be this possible using Teamveiwer?

    Yes, it's completely possible.

    Only trust someone to use your computer who you would trust into your home and be on your computer.

    you could do just the presentation connection. then they dont have control. you can also turn off file sharing and give control too.

    I was thinking about the same. I can see what he is doing but i was wondering if he can do something that i can't see.

    I guess it is better to run Teamveiwer on a virtual machine.

    No, not if your watching them. Just disconnect the net. You can also limit settings w/ team viewer for your saftey.

    While they can connect they would still have to download or transfer a virus and then run it. So that should be pretty d@mn obvious so long as your watching them. However, I recommend not leaving your PC unattended while being remote controlled.
