Key Logging Software Question
I have not bee around for a while ... been too busy being sick (I had a bout with Necrotizing Fasciitus aka 'Flesh-Eating Disease')
After 6 weeks of extensive antibiotic treatments, I am slowly coming around now, and soooooo glad to be back on a PC (I was jonzing like crazy !!!)
Anyhow ... I have very good reasons to believe that my roomate has been on my computer, and snooping around in my personal files, client records, etc. (when you spend 16+ hours a day on your machine, you KNOW when somebody has been on it!)
So my question is this ... Is it possible for somebody to install key-logging software without your knowledge, and the more likely question, is there a software out there that somebody can recommend to me, that will scan my machine and tell me if any key-logging software is installed ??
I know virtually NOTHING when it comes to spy vs. spy **** like that ... can it be installed/accessed over our home network, or does he have to have direct access to my machine (I know that when I try to access the 'Program Files' dir of my other machine from this one, it causes my Windows explorer to stop responding) ... so would this be the case when he tries to access installed files from a networked machine too ??
But yes he has had plenty of access to my machines while I was in the hospital, and unfortunately he had full access, as I gave him my password to use my CDR burner a few weeks back when his took a dump ...
I appreciate any and all help anybody can give me ... It is not a nice feeling when you cannot trust the very people you live with ... Needless to say I have begun the search for a new house ON MY OWN ... never again will I "share expenses" with somebody ... this has not been a good experience
Scan the PC with Spybot and The Cleaner:
If it comes back clean, you're OK. Welcome back to the land of "healthy" sick people!
Hahaa ... glad to be back Bill ... thanx!
would you use tiny keylogger for legit reasons
Re: eric legge
I just may use it if I can't keep a couple teens out of adult sites and chatrooms! Then see if I can't block them through the router!

Tried software, they've already hacked it!
Hey Systopians !
TO update my situation ... I installed the keylogger on my machine myself, and was able to catch my ex-roomate red-handed accessing my computer while I was out.
I confronted him and asked what he was looking for, and he acted dumb and said he did not know what I was talking about (having this stupid grimace on his face all the while...). You should have seen his face when I was able to tell him exactly what he typed, and which softwares he opened!!
I have since moved out and found my ovn house. All's well that ends well. Thanks for all help!
You can always protect your computer with a password. That is what I do.
Any password can be cracked or bypassed quite easily.
I'm constantly amazed at the poor sods who still use win98 and think that the logon password will keep their PC safe.
Their mouths literally drop open when I press the ESC key and bypass their 'uncrackable and unguessable' password.
If I had kids who were visiting unsavoury sites or chat rooms, I'd use it to find out what they were, and then create a HOSTS file and put the wrong site addresses in it so that the pages wouldn't load.
Maybe they wouln't figure that out.
But that's still closing the barn door after the horses have been out and about.
But surely it's possible to use a software firewall to block certain sites and to have its settings protected by a password so that they can't be removed?
There is a great little program called 'spy sites' that will add hundreds of adult, unsavoury and insecure sites into your browser's restricted internet zone list.
I install it onto every one of my customer's PCs. Sure it might restrict their internet usage a bit, butit also reduces the number of support calls and visits I have to make as well.
Can't anyone here use Google?
Took me 3 seconds to find it!
just thought it would be a courtesy. I've refered people to spybot before and then they call me back and say "why does it tell me I have to pay" At that point I ask them what program they downloaded and it wasn't the spybot but some other spyware util.
I wasn't ranting at anyone in particular, just everyone in general
