Hello guys, I have a question about connecting to my sons computer. He's in his teens and I want to monitor what he is downloading and getting into on there without him knowing it. He spends too much time on there so I am a bit concerned.

So my question is.. do you know what would be a good program I can use to get access to his computer without something sitting in his task bar or somewhere like in his program files where he would notice it. He's not dumb when is comes to modern day technology. Also I would like it to be a startup deal so that after he does a restart I can still monitor what is going on. Everyone in the family has McAfee Anti-Virus, SpyBot S&D, and Uniblue SpyEraser running on our machines so I would like this program not to be picked up by them.

If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated! I just need to know what part I put on my wife and I's computer and what I put on his. Thank you all so much!

I use this one...


I have used this one for the last 2 years and so far it seems to be working pretty well. Once it is installed on child's pc, it emails me updates as often as I want. On my 15 yr olds computer, it allows him to go where he wants, but sends me alerts when he crosses the line. Personally I told both children what i was doing (13/15). My son knows that I can look at as much or as little as I want and overall I respect his privacy. For my daughter that just turnned 13 (today!); when she tries to go to a site it simply does not allow her if its not a good site for her. It would be easier if you go to their site and read what it will do. So far I am very happy with it.

A couple things to keep in mind, kids can sign up for gmail or some other online email and it is harder to keep track of them. Your son will try to find work arounds but this will keep him in line. He will never know it is on his pc. And it will also send you "snapshots" of desktop as often as you like.
