I have a Dell Lap Top with a Windows Vista OS. My problem is I have a 15 yr old daughter who uses my laptop and I suspect she may be communicating via email with people she shouldn't be. is there anyway to check my LT for hidden email accounts?

As far as email accounts, not that i know of. If you want a little more control of your computer, you might want to enable her account for the Vista Parental Controls. If you have Windows Vista Home Premium (or higher) just go to Start, in the search box type Parental and it will be the first option. There are a lot of things you can see and view on what other users that are placed in the parental controls category are doing. One of them includes the ability to see what websites they have gone to and how long. You can also determine HOW LONG you want her on the computer! Check it out, its free with Vista!
