Whenever I boot it connects. There is no option to disconnect it except to uncheck the "connect automatically" box, but it stays connected even if I reboot.
What is going on here?
Also, I cannot turn Windows Defender on. When I try, Windows tells me that antivirus protection is being performed remotely. This was not part of the contract when I purchased this laptop and my employer continually tells me that they are not the one who is connecting through the hidden network.
So, since my employer obviously doesn't see that this is a monumental security issue, I feel obligated to correct this problem before our network is compromised, infected, and my data is lost or corrupted.
I do suspect that my employer is lying through his teeth, but just in case he claims to know nothing and is not bothered by this issue, I want to simply take care of it since that's the right thing to do for every reason.
What can I do to delete this hidden network and lock anyone else out who may try to get back in?
Here's a screenshot. When the machine boots it always shows that it is connecting a hidden network!
