Although we sympathize with your concerns, I have different thoughts on how you should handle your child's online activities. I think putting the computer in a public place and letting them know that you can at any time view their surfing history would work better and open a line of communication with the child.

You can set limits on what types of pages they can view by setting their internet explorer to a medium or high level that prohibit the viewing of offensive pages.

Thank you for your quick response. Currently there is only one computer and it stays in the living room. all offensive content sites are blocked already.

I think the debate on "communications with my child" (who's 13) is a philosophical one and not appropriate in a computer forum.

Having said that, I have a right to know whats going on in my home and if my child wants 100% privacy they'll need to have there own place. Until then every so often I want to know what he's talking about.... My wife has my passwords to my email accounts and visa versa. If there is nothing to hide it shouldn't matter... I'm sure the parents of the columbine killers wish they would have been as like minded as myself..


Now back on topic.... Ideas for key stroke loggers that are free to d/l would be greatly appreciated. (something that does not contain a virus of trojan)

I appreciate your concern on my childs behalf and this is in no way ment as a flame.

Keyloggers (and the like) are things that we help remove here. I will not get into a discussion about how/why you should deal with your children or your computer, but I can tell you that you will not get this kind of help here.

Anyone providing this kind of information here at Geeks To Go will be dealt with swiftly.
