    Most people need help removing spy programs but I need help finding one... There are several people who access my home computer and I would like a program that I can install to show me who has been on my computer.. I have 3 children and a niece and nephew who uses my computer and one of them has changed a few passwords on an important account can anyone help me?

    First of all, set your kids and niece and nephew up with "Limited" accounts. This way they cannot change any passwords except their own.

    Next, download and install a program, such as NetNanny or CyberPatrol, which will allow you to control/view what they are doing/have done on the PC.

    Hi,
    Why not just set youself up as Administrator and have all others log on as "Guest" with limited access? That way there's no need to spy on anyone, just say you don't want people making changes to the way you've got your home PC set up?
