Last thing I thought I'd need to ask about>>>>> keylogger for my own home computers

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Roscoe P Pendoscoe, Nov 22, 2009.

  1. Group,

    Honestly I do not know if this is a good place to start or even ask
    but being as desperate as I am, I needed to start somewhere.

    I have encountered a touchy and crummy issue at home with my Wife of
    10 years.

    She is having secret "chat" sessions from her laptop connected to our
    home office WiFi net with some sex maniac in another area of the

    I need to install an undetectable key logger on my own "net". Boy how
    I hate the situation but it is a desperate measure for a desperate

    I cannot put a hardware dongle on it as she is computer savvy and
    would instantly see it for what it is.

    Can I hack directly and see & save "chats" in real time since she's on
    my net that I configured?

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I looked at the
    offerings briefly for monitoring your child's activities and don't
    know if they are sophisticated enough to escape her daily use.

    Really I am no nutcase, but my home is falling apart and I need to
    intervene somehow. I am no spy or eavesdropper. Need help, need some
    more info to see how far this has gone so I know if it is past the
    point of saving or I am just doing some wishful thinking.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have a Linksys WRT54G with speedbooster. Used to be more involved in
    my setup and now have just become a user and only do the most needed
    things. Easiest and most straight-forward way would be best.

    Thanks so much!

    Instead of a keylogger. I'd suggest the direct approach. Confrontation
    and then some counseling.
    Unless he wants to just "gather evidence" for an impending divorce.

    Just google for "keylogger". By their nature and design they are
    largely undetectable and it is unlikely your wife would realize
    it's on, unless she checks all running processes, but even then
    I wouldn't be surprised if some keyloggers managed to stay "out
    of sight"...

    Also, Windows has a way of keeping a lot of stuff on the
    computer - did you try just searching the whole drive(s) for
    files containing the certain words I surely don't need to

  6. That's fine and I don't blame you for your doubts about my intent. I
    will say it took a lot to even post the predicament I have found
    myself in here.
    I meant it in a way that I was not just going around trying to find
    out just any old thing, important things that are directly going to
    have a devastating impact on me and my Family life.

    And, as far as direct approach goes, she TOLD me what was going on but
    I am certain I am only hearing a part of the entire truth. I did find
    text chat that was "saved" and other things that would be enough to
    convince you that suddenly finding would either make you crazy with
    rage, cry, or put a foot in the backside to help her get out the door.

    Now, I hear, again from her mouth, the supposed real meeting has been
    called off (his decision) and she says it is over. Cried and the whole

    Now, I just want to know if I should continue to see if this is some
    BS story or, she is being truthful, or, having second thoughts for
    telling me in the first place.

    It is obvious to me that trust has gone out the window, and believing
    anything would be naive on my part from this point on.

    This subject has degraded into something other than what I originally
    simply asked for, me defending my position and reason to "snoop" where
    I for years never even gave a thought to pry into. I hated even having
    to get keys or anything from her purse as I think some places even
    though marriage are private and should stay that way.

    Wish I could pass my issue to you to deal with. See what you'd do with
    it and how you'd go about it.
    Only the truth can now be what decides what happens. Just plain old
    words can only leave doubts which can be worse as suspicion will
    always be there.

    Answers are what I need. Real ones.

    Thanks for............?

  7. Yes, I Googled Keylogger, and I just don't know which of the many
    would suit my purpose and be unobtrusive and simple.

    Just a quick and easy solution w/o trying out 3-4.

    Since she is connected to my net via wireless, I should be able to
    view pretty easily. I just don't have the time to do it while trying
    to start up a new business which this has not helped by putting my
    mind on other thoughts I thought we'd never face.

    Did you check out webwatcher as advised? It is very powerful, but not
    free. It is a great deal more than a keylogger. or WebWatcher redefines Computer Monitoring
    Software... Product Comparison -- WebWatcher

    Do not confuse its comparison with 'parental control' ware. It is way
    beyond that.

  9. I will right now. I thought it mixed in with a reply from the
    "doubter" of my intents.

    Thanks to you again, I will follow it up.when I log off USENET

  12. Thinking the phone repairman planted a keylogger is kinda paranoid.
    Everyone knows it's the pizza guy you have to look out for. Some of
    those pepperoni are really devices that once swallowed, mutate part of
    your intestinal tract into a sophisticated sonar array with Bluetooth
    technology that can image anything within twenty feet of your anus.

    It has degraded to a bunch of oddballs that hide behind the anonymity

    discovered it, I am about to just close up my legacy account with my

    I just one time ask for a little help (and I really knew better) and I
    get people that don't read the entire thread who think I have a phone
    guy who installed a key logger!
