When using hyperterminal over the internet with a colleague connected at the other end, neither one of us can get the text we type in on the keyboard to stay put on the screen. Typing a character or two on the keyboard results in the character then ongoing characters and garbage spaced out all over the screen with the characters scrolling. After several seconds the scrolling stops but further attempts to type results in the same thing. We had used Hyperterminal successfully for several months. The problems started after switching to high speed internet on my end but connecting using dial up doesn't fix the problem.
Is the very busy screen a sign of my colleague transferring unauthorized info from my PC to his? He is capable of writing some pretty slick machine code applications.
