How can I tell if someone is remotely viewing (not accessing) my computer and how can I prevent it?

Recently my fiance has been concerned that our roommate is remotely viewing our computer and watching movies at the same time that he is. There have been uncanny situations where a funny part on our computer comes on and our roommate in another room laughs at exactly that time. Its happened enough times that it just seems too weird.
I don't think he is able to access and control our computer since I have remote desktop and network access off from the administrator controls, but there might be something I am missing. I also would like to change our router's password since that might stop him if he has figured out our password, but I forgot how to access the settings from a browser.
Here are the stats for our computer and router. Please ask if I might have missed something:
Recently installed ZoneAlarm
I have also done the Start-Run- cmd, netstat check for any foreign pcs, but I got mostly 127, 198, or 0.0.0.0's. Keep in mind, I am still fairly new to in depth computer managing, so keep it as English as possible ^_^
