Can my internet provider see the files on my computer?

Q: Time Warner cable internet provider says that they can look into my personal computer files from another computer. Is this true and can I block them from doing so?

    If you don’t own a router, I’d suggest purchasing one, these help act as a firewall between your home network and the rest of the world.

    To see what is really accessible from the outside work, try these two security scanners. They will probe your homenetwork at your request and provide a free report on what is accessible from the outside and what isn’t.
