To know what's happing on my computer when i let other people use it. Also i want a better understanding on these types of programs like hands on experience, install of the program how to navigate through it and analyze the data it's giving me... etc.

Why is this against forum rules?

I never said it was against forum rules.
The only issue you may run into with these programs is that they tend to be used for (and I'm not accusing you of this) malicious intent. Many of them come down with other programs and appear on an infected system and from here credit card details and stuff tend to go halfway round the world.
I would suggest that if you have doubts about what other people are doing on your computer, don't let them use it.

I didn't say you said it was against forum rules. I was asking the question, thank you for clearing that up.

I understand you guys see this software on people's computer that unwilling have it. However i don't attend on using this for malicious intent. I know that if i have doubts about people i should lock them out of my computer BUT... like i said that's not the only reason for my wanting this software. I want a better understanding of it and how to use it (Installing, Analyzing, Troubleshooting) I've been doing it with many different programs, most free software this site has listed I've played around with it just to understand it more. I can read up on it and view the screen shots all day but it's not the same as hands on experience and doing it yourself.

If this is going to be an issue G2G can close this thread.


Thanks!

I don't believe that this is an issue, but more of giving you information on cause and effect of this software.

For instance....Logging info on a computer without the users knowledge would most likely be a "violation of their freedom".

When you use company property such as computers and email, they have the right to log all this info. They get around the law by telling you in the company handbook that you receive and generally sign for (that you have read and understood).

Just google free keylogger software, always nice to know what your kids are doing or attempting to do. There are some free ones out there that mature people can you use instead of using for some stupid malicious reason.

I think you guys missed the bigger picture of me trying to become for familiar with this kind of software. That's OK though! Thank you for all the input, no further post are needed... unless you just want to = D

i would suggest that neither you NOR anyone else google "free keylogger software". you may very well find free keylogger software, but i assure you that you are not going to be the only one receiving the keylogs.

if you're interested in monitoring the activity on your system you've got a few options that are safe.

one would be to buy a Keylogger dongle. it's basically a little USB (sometimes serial, sometimes parallel) device that will log keystrokes to it's memory, then you can check the log by entering a password.

a more effective option would be to get a production grade software to do this. one that i've used quite frequently at work is Spectorsoft (also love their name). they have a home version that's only $100 and will log EVERYTHING done on the computer, it can even capture screenshots. it's completely undetectable (if you set it up correctly) and can't be removed without a password. i use the enterprise version and it's EXTREMELY effective.

the CHEAPEST solution is to password protect your account, and then set up a new user on your computer that has EXTREMELY limited rights to the computer and let anyone else who uses your computer use that account.

Step 1. Google free keylogger software

Step 2. install

Step 3. Visit malware removal forum

Step 4. Change all passwords

Step 5. Put freeze on fraudulent charges

Step 6. Facepalm

Edit: SpecterSoft... I think of the specters from Mass Effect...Must be top grade stuff!
