Can giving someone remote access to my computer to help me fix an issue open me up to security threats?

Q: Hi, I had a computer problem and my co-worker tried to help me fix it by remote access. She had control of my computer for about 4 mins and I watched everything she did on my monitor. Afterwards she returned control back to me and i restarted the computer immediately.

In hindsight, i realize i probably shouldnt allow this to happen.

I’m wondering if its possible for her to download any information from my computer, upload any trojans to my computer, or accessed my files during the time she had access.

And will she be able to view what i do in the future or access my computer remotely again without my permission?

Please help!

My pathping from the PC i want to remote into, to the PC I’m having issues with is:
