Someone needs to help me. My father and I no longer speak and he bought me this computer. When I was younger he installed a logger on my other computer where he could read all of my AOL conversations, see the websites I visited, etc. When I was home over winter break he went onto my computer and I don't know if he did this again... Someone keeps changing my pictures on websites and has been reading my online conversations...

For an example as to how I know they are reading my conversations - I was missing a camera of my friends and I talked to her on AIM about it. She got an email about the camera later on that day saying that I had the camera and to keep pressing me to get it back to her.

I have a feeling it is my father, but seeing that I am independent of him and do not associate with him anymore and am over 18, is this legal?

I am seriously thinking of going to the cops with this one... but I need to know, is there a way someone can read my conversations, see what websites I visit, etc from another computer? Are there programs out there that will send him information through an email or something?

I need help!!!

Possibly. Probably not on a Federal level, which would come into play if you and he live in different states (See Here. I'd suggest consulting an attorney for the local scoop.

We shouldn't help anyone remove a key logger though. It could be a parent watching a minor child and the story may just be a story.

I agree with Enthusiast. By openly assisting with this post you could be providing the knowledge to another person to defeat the same or similar software for less the legitimate purpose. IMO

Member is being assisted with malware issues as I noted above.
That's it. End of story.
