At home, we have two computers which are networked. All documents are saved onto my computer and then shared across the network.
One folder of my sister's is called "My Chat Logs" and comes from a program called Messenger Plus (click here for its website). This program automatically saves her conversations in MSN Messenger. As she is only 11, this was the request of my Mum and Dad so they could monitor her if necessary.
As she learns more about computers, I am worried that she will find the folder and delete it, or it's contents. What I need is a way to prevent this folder being deleted. Any suggestions about how this could be achieved would be extremely valuable.
My computer, where the documents are stored, is running Windows XP Home Edition on a FAT32 hard drive and her computer is running Windows 98SE.
Also, is it possible to save the conversations in Yahoo Messenger? As I do not use this program, I do not know myself and I'm sure she would appreciate my looking on her computer! If it is an option in the program or there is some other program that enables this, I would be glad to hear of it.
However the messages are saved as DAT files, now yahoo make so that these files cannot be read with NOTEPAD. They have to be read within yahoo messenger. So that means that you would have to have her log in and then you can read all the messages.
