I currently have windows xp home addition. The one that came with my Dell computer. I put an account on for my friend. I know him very well and trust him. I just have issues with people on my computer due to things happening in the past. Just by this alone I should have not put him on then. I gave him a limited account. But he has blocked me from the account. He should totally have his privacy. I don't really care too much in the nosey sense but I like to know all of the goings on on my computer. I don't think that is unreasonable. I just want to make sure that nothing goes wrong with this computer. Porn is ok on here I just want to make sure that nothing illegal is going on. Is there anyway to look into his account without deleting it or changing the password. I am not looking to go through all of his files. Just check on the downloads and such. Is there anyone who can help me.

Thanks
Tete

It is against policy here at Bleeping Computer to help people defeat passwords. Sorry. No help here.

I did not realize that. Thank you very much for informing me of this. No I am not being sarcastic. I really mean that. :thumbsup:

Well, I appreciate the situation you are in, however we have no way of knowing who you are for sure, and what your intentions are, plus there may be many people who will view this thread in the future who have bad intentions, and we don't want to help them!

Good luck!

I completely understand that situation. I will look for another solution. Such as getting him a cheap computer so that he can download whatever he wants and I will have no worries. I have just had too many problems in the past with someone on my computer and law enforcement and don't want to go through that again. Plus, there is also telling him my issues. I just don't want to hurt his feelings and such. Thank you once agian.

If it were my computer, I certainly wouldn't let anyone use it. You may have no problems with porn, but you do have problems with viruses and trojans that are very likely to be downloaded from porn sites. If he wants to use a computer with complete privacy, let him go to the library. You can delete his account.
