I need to check up on my 12 year old? I have his laptop - just need to know how to review the data.
I'll give that a shot.heartbreakridge01 said:if he has it set it should save them to a file on the computer, easiest way to get them is log in and view conversation history.
i cant think of the exact route to get them though, i think its My computer>C drive>program files> yahoo messanger>im log. hope that helps.
yea, the little fucker is smarter than I thought. He has them cleared on exit. :evil:FloridaMarine said:Is this what you're talking about? (scroll to lll);

Nah, the girls started PM'ing my youngest daughter since my son is on the road for a sail boat race. The discussion got very 'naughty' for a 9 year olds ears.squeky said:Ah, let the kid have some fun :wink: The girls are just on his computer, not in his room (like it used to be).
But if you insist, you need a insidious keystroke logger. Don't bother with trojans and such, you have physical access to the machine. Trojans are for remote "administration". Hopefully he's not running anti-keystroke logger programs.
Yeah, so it wasn't the mags then :mrgreen: That is a tricky situ, good look on your investigations.Exotic-Toys said:Nah, the girls started PM'ing my youngest daughter since my son is on the road for a sail boat race. The discussion got very 'naughty' for a 9 year olds ears.
I grew up with computers - I'm 37 now. We feel it's important for the kids to have their own computers - research, school work - the things they are expected to do would blow your mind, communicating with friends & family.run n gun said:I guess the real question is why does your 12 year old have his own laptop? Not that I'm questioning your parenting, but that seems a little more than a 12 year old really needs. Seems like they start younger and younger these days.
That has always been our rule as well - also no closing the laptop when I walk into his room. New rule is no deleting log files. He has always been a pretty good kid..better than I was for sure! :lol:cphilip said:I told my kid that nothing he does on that computer was private. What he did in the shower or in his room with the door closed, for the most part was.
