Hey

Somehow my parents are able to track the time i turn on my computer and what i do in it. Now i'm pretty sure they're basing this on some sort of logs, but does anyone know how to gain access to them and how to get rid of them?

See, I stay up late sometimes behind the computer and my parents are using this log against me.

thanks

get on their computer and uninstall the software

try scanning with adaware. Most of the time it can recognize monitoring scripts and either quarantine them or delete them.

All in all, why don't you confront your parents about the issue in a reasonable manner. you never know what might happen...

Tools > Internet Options > Delete browsing history

or Tools > Internet Options > browsing history settings > view files - there you go

these give time, date, and what user was accesing

Haha, confronting my parent's won't work...they're all-around unreasonable people.

I'm pretty sure that it's something that is already with windows (I mean, that they aren't using any scripts or software to monitor activity. I believe it may be some log that already comes with windows (i'm figuring this because they have been able to track my activity on all computers, including ones out of the house (they only know though when the computer has been turned on/off and possibly what programs are opened))

Don't think that's it man. It has little to do with tracking when the comp was turned on or off.

If you type systeminfo in command prompt it will tell you how long the computer has been on.

Thanks for the info. This could very well be what my dad is using. However, my other set (divorced) of parents can certainly track some sort of activity.

See, i couldn't sleep one night so i thought i'd pop into my comp (which was on and hadnt been touched since midnight) and check my email (browser based) around 4 am. Now they're saying that i stood up all night and left the computer only around 4 am

But not the last time the computer was on or the activity that occurred.

TS, safe mode should stop whatever your parents are using.

they could be logging on to your network (assuming you have one)
there are ways to **** with people on networks (remote shutdowns and such)

to be honest though
it sounds like they are signed up to a remote log in program
so deleting history, cookies and temp files is a good start

Why don't you just be a good little boy and listen to what your mommy and daddy tell you?

Seriously. I don't get how people don't realize how lame they sound when they need help doing something their parents won't let them.

Lame? Man, i need some privacy. And also i don't like the way they jump to conclusions using this information.

Use a proxy site if you want surfing privacy.

Smash it into tiny bits and see if that gets logged.

Aha, yes, the router.

I actually do have a router and i don't know the password. So this could be a problem, right? I think i overheard my dad talking something about this.

this guy is right
they can access your network remotely
or the computer itself remotely

try looking up some popular remote programs and searching for them on your comp

sorry for double here
but if they have control of the router, they have control of your net access.
they can see the last time you logged on the net and when you logged off
in some cases they can see what you are doing too
you can try installing a firewall that only you can break

Bingo.
There should be a reset button on the router, but they'll obviously notice that if they check it often.

Does the reset button wipe out the data? It won't break the internet connection (As in ask me for stupid passwords i don't know and such?)

i dont think that will change the fact that your comp logged off at a certain time
it would just say the connection was interupted

try what i said and let me know

trust me
hiding pr0n is a specialty of mine
