is their any prog that i can put on daughters pc and run on my laptop,so i can check what she is doing,without her knowing,realtime.

I dont know of any,there may be somthing out there,im not to sure on the legality of them tho you could be invading her privacy by spying on her.Maybe best to move the pc to a room where people are that way you can have a quick look over her shoulder,and it may be better than the alternative.

My only idea would be a keylogger on her system and when she's not using the PC, go on it and have a look at what she's been doing?

seeing what's she is doing realtime would be pretty much impossible, cost wise too.

I think thats horrible trying to spy on what she is doing, im 14 and im just chatting to my friends on msn and my mum / dad /uncle / aunty ect they all look at what I am doing as if I were doing something I shouldn't be...

Sometimes when my friends are upset about something and they wan't to tell me privately they do it on msn, when someone try's to look at what it is, I imediately minimize it and they usually come out with a comment like "oh chatting dirty?, or "girlfreind?", and believe me it gets really annoying...

Just in interest why would you wan't to spy on her? - maybe you feel she's doing something she shouldn't?

This is always a delicate subject and this thread was ticked as resolved after the first posting.So to avoid further bickering amongst members it would be best to close now

Youngsters' natural curiosity often plays a role but, although there is a certain amount of risk if you don't keep a discreet eye on their surfing activities, the media's obsession with the seedier side of the Net does play a part in increasing parents' natural anxieties.
