    What kind of Operating system are you running? How "smart" are your children about computers? Have you tried anything in the past (IE like Net Nanny, Gaurd Dog, etc)?

    Formatting my server because someone hacked into it sounds pretty boring to me...
    That\'s why it\'s all about!

    there are many key/event loggers...
    this might be a good idea, as you could simplt scan the log files for key words like "porn" or "boobies", this might be the easiest way to do this... Of course you have a very small user group (your kids) scanning the logs wont take much time, and is probably the best way to go about doing this... of course AciDriveHB is right, maybe net nanny or one of those products might help...

    oh, also- depending on how much your kids know about computers, you could look in the temp, internet files folder looking for old pr0n images/ links/cookies/etc...

    edit2/ has some nice keylogging references...
    yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...

    Regardless of whether they are your "children" or not (yes, thats quotation marks you see there..), monitering/reading someones email and prying on instant message conversations is just wrong. Sure, try netnanny or something as someone suggested, but would *you* like it if someone cracked *your* passwords and read *your* private doings?

    my two cents..

    Go to and look for a program called Spy Buddy. Spy buddy takes screen shots every so many minutes you specify, records all keys pressed, records all IM conversations, all applications ran, all windows opened, all websites visited, etc. It does a lot of things, and runs in the background where ppl can not see it. It does cost about 50 U.S. D but is worth it. It worked great for me.

    I really wonder this sentence. If it is your computer it is you who has the administrator account password and administrators can see and do whatever they want. Click to Control Panel -> User Accounts, there are all the accounts...

    How to hack into your own computer? Hacking into one's own computer doesn't sound reasonable if you have an user (administrator) account for it anyway... You make it sound like your children locked you out of your computer. In that case it is way too late to try to install any keyloggers or other spy proggies, your children are too smart to be fooled by those.

    Edit/Add: If your children really locked you out of your computer you will need a hardware keylogger, unless you can talk them to give the password to you. Or just steal the power cable, mouse and keyboard and put them behind a lock: if you can't use the computer then no one else will either!
