Free Keylogger

Can anyone recommend a free keystroke logger? I want one that only logs keystrokes - don't need anything fancy but don't want it to be one of those malicious ones that send any logs back to the "owner".

I know it sounds like a strange request but I suspect a flatmate *may* be using my PC (when I'm out) for let's say, dubious, activity. I can't disallow access completely to him as he pays towards the Broadband but the deal was that "certain" sites would not be accessed and I don't want to confront him until (if?) I have proof.

Rather than a keylogger, why not just look at the Temp Internet files in Internet Options. If they have been deleted download "Restoration"

click here
and have a look through the deleted files on your HD

Thanxs guys / gals - I didn't know you could check like that instead :o)

No - the PC is mine but I can't afford the Broadband on my own so I agreed they could all use my PC for www as long as they contributed to the Broadband payments, but on certain terms.

So, you want your flat mate to subsidise your BB connection but want to restrict where he/she browses.

And now you want to spy on your flat mate's internet activity!

I'm glad that I'm not your flat mate.

It's a strange world. A.N.Other (frequently) comes on here with a filesharing question and get's castigated even before it is clear that he is downloading copyrighted material. Yet, someone else seeks methods of spying on a flat mate...and people are falling over themselves to help!

It seems that the self appointed police on here don't include the discouragement of immoral activities within their remit.

@ Dogbreath - the computer is mine and therefore it is my responsibility that my flatmate doesn't "infect" it with harmful virus'/malware/spyware, etc. or even a leave a history that coul be construed as "dubious"

Why not restrict usage to a time when you there, so you can see what is going on. After all it is your computer!!!!
