    Default Snooping software

    Has anybody used? Does it work? Teenager has been really secretive on computer lately. Want to make sure nothing bad is going on. Check that, nothing REALLY bad. Don't want to get into trouble she can't handle. Thx.

    Hope you figure things out.

    Wife and I have a 5-year old, and we talk from time to time about how she'll be allowed to use the computer when she gets older. One thing we mutually agree on is that she won't be getting a computer in her own room. She'll have one in the family room instead.

    Is that an option for you to perhaps protect your daughter from some of the nasty things the internet has to offer?

    Computers for kids need to be in a common area. Mine will not get computers in their room, or their own laptops. If my 8 year old uses mine, its done with me sitting right next to her.

    Talking to your teenager about it might not suck as bad as you think. If she's still being secretive, I'd go with CD's suggestion regarding the software.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I've had to load Spector on corporate PCs as well. It works really well and is virtually undetectable.

    there is also the option of random beatings. when she asks why, just say, "you know what you did. why did you do it?" when she tells you, your worries will be resolved.

    criminal and/or civil litigation is, however, a likely result.

    Try a flavor of VNC, there should be one for the operating system. Basically, it's meant so you can take over someone's desktop, but if you configure it right, you can peek into what your kid is doing without her being the wiser.(Hide the Icon, configure not to take control on connection).

    This will work, but you'd have to be sitting at another computer watching every action. As opposed to the "snooping" software which logs everything so you can review it at a later time when most convenient.

    Just thought I'd clear that up for the OP.
