Hello all, i've recently become interested in obtaining more information on keyloggers. Any advice on where i might find some trustworthy info on them? Quite honestly, i have a 13 year old daughter who is beginning to become a little too wild. She lives out of my area with her mom, i only see her one weekend a month. Mom does'nt care much about our daughters change, but i do. I would like to capture her email and myspace password the next time she comes to visit me, and uses my computer. I know this seems somewhat extreme, but believe me, this is a last resort.

if you are using this to capture usernames and passwords for PRIVATE email address then that is considered hacking and against the member agreement of Experts-Exchange.

Understood. As i stated, this was purely a last resort, out of sheer desperation. I apologize.

Would it still be inappropriate to ask if this is a known and trusted site? Or are all of these such sites dangerous?

There are apps Spector Pro that are respectable, but it comes down to communication and trust ultimately. Easier said than done... I know, just don't give up. It's your PC, and you can install what you wish. Just as an FYI, myspace get's hacked on a pretty regular basis, and phishers and scammers manipulate the site to install apps on your machine. I'd make sure your daughters account is in the "users group" not the administrators group.

Wow rich! Thanks for the info, as well as the food for thought. I tried creating a user account, transfered all my pics and docs to a shared folder, but when i tried to view them the docs opened as read only...? Still playing with it though.

As for the keylogger, YES... it is my computer i intended to use it on, AND my daughter is a minor (13 years old). I hardly see her, so my imput is limited to one weekend a month. As i said, i've tried everything else... this was a last resort.

Without encouraging me at all, is it innapropriate to tell me if you know if this site and device they sell is reliable? Dangerous?

Anyhoot, thanks for the understanding at least rich.

Misfit.

yes I remember from the last question. HW keyloggers are ok but detectable easily by site.
