    I agree minors should be watched and raised. The best lessons are from honesty and you will only get that from gaining their trust. Loggers are a foul way of keeping tabs on your young ones, but in some situations, it migh tbe the only means left to use. I would first talk to them, and if you feel they are still not being totally honest, tell them you are going to monitor them. let them know you are watching even when not around. The means of which is your choice, but I dont feel being sneaky right away is the best solution to a problem. No, I dont know all that your situation entails, but lets not forget, these are our children, we should be mature enough to afford them some privacy. Before long we'll be recording their phone conversations as well, and then what will we be emulating?

    Well if you usually want the best your probally going to have to buy something to keep your kids away from bad things and internet dangers but I found a product that you might have to buy but you may try it out before you buy it this product alows you to http://www.webroot.com/wb/products/childsafe/index.php

    Monitor your kids’ online activities to keep them safe from Internet dangers

    Block access to inappropriate web sites

    Keep track of your kids’ activities from remote locations

    Create an online kids safety plan and enforce “acceptable use” policies

    This is what it does o yea and this product is called child safe

    Monitor Internet and computer activities

    email activity
    chat room sessions
    web sites visited
    programs run
    and more

    I am not sure if it will moniter your kids one on one sessions but i know it will if they get into a chat room.
    But you can probally find a free one somewhere if you know how to look but usually you probally want to buy. You could also try www.google.com and it will give you a lot of answers. Or just sit down with them and talk to them about it and tell them not to go to those things because my parents think by taking away those things means i will never learn like downlaods and other things because some web sites are approppiate but then that child blocker comes in and doesn't allow them to acess it. Or if they will not listen and you don't want to take away the computer privilage then i suggest useing something to block it. (This is also just my opinion.)

    >Hope that helps you.

    My 2 Cents

    This day in age trust within the family is very important. I think that if you plan to use any form of logging program on your computer you should discuss it with your children. They might not like it but like you said you have the authority to keep your kids safe. Say one day you discover that one of your kids did something online that you would not want them to do. Think about how the conversation is going to go when you have to tell your child you were monitoring every thing they did on the computer with out their knowledge. The affects would be devastating. If my parents did that to me when I was a kid I would have felt horrified and violated. I think and this is just my opinion im not telling you what to do is to inform them of your actions before you monitor them. I say this for 2 reasons. First there is the whole trust issue but you have heard plenty about that. Second if your children know you are monitoring them they will be less likely to use the computer of unauthorized activities. Instead of waiting to catch them in the act give them a chance and use the software to make sure they are being faithful to your rules. In the long run I would think it would be a better choice but its up to you. Either way you are protecting your kids the only difference is that one way is going to maintain some trust between you and your kids.

    (Please don't take this post as me chewing you out for your decision. I just wanted to get my opinion out in the world)

    Come to think of it, had my parents started spying on my conversations with my friends I WOULD have tapped their phone line and started opening their mail.

    Hummm... How does playing with keylogers and things qualify as hacking? If its just porn your worried about then why not just take a look at the temp internet files... If your kids are deleteing all the temperary internet files each time he or she logs on then either the kid has something to hide or the kid isn't lazy like me.

    Keylogers are fine and I think someone suggested useing a trojan.... thats fine for personal use and all but then you have to clean it off your PC. It would be much easyier to just dig up a few files, overwriten data, & (ect). But if you would like to (tottaly) invade someones privacy then stick with the keyloger idea. As for trojans don't do it....

    Sure some of them come with friendly looking readme files and has a cute looking GUI... but usually the "friendlier" it seems the more dangerous it can become. For a example of how annoying things like BO-trojans can be... checkout my pic.

    P.S. If your going to get a keyloger then get one that puts all the keys into a safe place on your HD. If your shareing accounts and running things like MSN-messager... your kids will become suspicios when you get mail from: yourself / to: yourself.

    My Parents (step Dad) hacked my e-mail account cos he setup it up so he did know the password, the knob thought I was buying gear online. The thing that pisses me off most about it, is don't do drugs except excessive amounts of alchol. It's totally wrong to monitor peoples e-mail and illegall at work. Unless you inform you kids your wrong monitoring your kids. I know you want to protect your kids against weirdo's but their are limits and how old are you kids the older your kids get the more privacy you should give them.

    Just because you don\'t see it doesn\'t mean it\'s not there
