Is it possible that someone could be remote accessing into that computer. Or do most computers have this shortcut there? I looked at the properties and they haven't been messed with in several years. This just seemed odd to me.
If it was a built-in remote access from Windows, then there's nothing to worry about.
If it was a third-party, like Teamviewer, then definitely you should uninstall it.
