I am trying to keep track of my 15 y.o. daughters internet activities and her "boyfriend" has apparently shown her how to sign on via our home network but then apparently connects to something else and is "lost"
from our network making it hard if not impossible to track. I don't know alot
about computers and the internet and hope someone here is knowledgeable
and willing to share what they know. I'll even be grateful for names of other websites or books where I can learn what I need to know. Thanx. :confused:

after they get off of the computer go into windows/temp internet files, scroll down and you can see where/what they did.

if nothing shows in the temp internet files, the the bf is savvy and cleaning out the files as they leave, covering tracks and there might be other tracks you should be looking for too.

remember when you were young, i have to, my youngest is 14. :cool:

Just wanted to add that a few instant message programs allow a user to save the log of thier conversations and believe it or not teenagers like to save copies. These are easy to find on your home computer.

There are quite a few good keylogger programs out there where you can read every keystroke entered on the PC as well as both sides of Instant Messaging conversations. There are software and hardware versions available as well.

Well, this response comes from a mother who raised a teen... Your remediation should not involve software :p . If you've laid down the rules of what is and what is not acceptable use on the PC and, the rules have been broken, it is time to limit its usage. I suggest you only allow daughter to use the PC when you are available to oversee what she is doing. She won't like that but, after all, just WHOSE computer is it anyway? :) Secondly, use of the PC should not be allowed when BF is in the house. If they are still finding ways to get around the rules, you can invoke a power-on password. This will stop them dead in their tracks...

Doncha just love parenthood :eek:
