    How about a Kanguru Encryptor?

    Remove the key and the hardware encryptor locks the hard drive down. No access without the key

    Great site for reviews and general information on free antivirus software for Windows and Linux. It's always nice to have all the options in one place.

    http://www.free-antivirus.ca

    They also have a list of online virus scanners available on the internet...

    I wonder if they have a key logger program on your PC?

    What I do to my bro to get his passwords is the following.

    -I get into safe mode.

    -Enter via administrator account. He does not know that exists and by default it's not locked.

    -Go to control panel and create my new profile.

    -Restart and install the key logger in this new profile.

    -Go into the registry and hide the program from add/remove so you can't see it and make a change in the registry to not show my newly created profile.

    In short, run a spyware check and see if there is a Key logger installed.

    Yes there are programs that can crack the windows passwords but it requires time.

    I have a program to show me instantly what the passwords are but never seemed to work.

    BTW: Check behind your computer for a device connected to the keyboard. If you find a cylindrical thing , this too is a key logger.

    I don't know how old your kids are or how smart, but they seem to know more then you. Maybe a friend of theres is a accomplice.

    If they do have a key logger installed you can use this against them. Read everything they type for example. That is if they didn't password protect the log.

    In this case install your own key logger.

    Sense this was about security and privacy links. Heres a link .LOL

    Some Windows-based Rootkit scanners:

    SysInternals Rootkit Revealer
    http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilitie...tRevealer.html

    Sophos Antirootkit Scanner
    http://internetsecuritysuites.blogsp...i-rootkit.html

    F-Secure Blacklight
    http://www.f-secure.com/blacklight

    Use them all since like AV and Spyware scanners, certain tools can be fooled by certain rootkits.

    This site detects virus, spywares, etc for FREE

    I have another tool for FREE online scanning:
    www.infectedornot.com (is owned by Panda Software).
    The website allows you to use their Panda Nano Scan and Panda Total Scan tools for free and, more importantly, it displays the collected stats from all the scans performed at the website in the past 24 hours.

    Enjoy it!!

    This must be a terrible blow to your parental authority ego.
    Undoubtedly you cannot allow this to continue. I would handcuff the kids to a water pipe in the basement.

    www.proxy.org provides a ton of proxies for anonymous web surfing, and since using proxies while surfing for pr0n (hey I'm only human!) I haven't had any problems with malware.

    heh.

    well back to websurfing!

    PC Decrapifier Gets rid of trialware and the likes.

    Autoruns See what you have starting up.

    Also => Startup CPL Compliments Startup monitor.

    When StartupCPL is installed a new icon will be in the control panel called "Startup". Lists the HKLM, HKCU, Startup user, Startup Common and Run Once entries. Good for controlling what you want to auto start and what doesn't really need to auto start and/or finding out why have have a craptaculer Internet connection / slow computer.


    Is it privacy related? Could be..
