    Hi There

    A friend of mine has just discovered that her psycho paranoid boyfriend has
    installed 'Family Keylogger' on her PC. She doesn't want to remove it as
    she doesn't want him to know she has found it.

    Is there any way she can get access to the logs, (preferably past ones) to
    see what info he has about her? Any help or advice gratefully appreciated!

    The best advice I can give is DUMP HIM NOW.

  3. Hi.

    I took a look around for 'Family Keylogger' Is this the one:

    If it is, it blows. The doc that come with it and the website weren't
    too helpful when it came to where it stores the 'old logs'
    I didn't feel like installing it to see what the defaults were for where
    it stores the logs.

    VERY good advice and that plan is already in progress. But he really IS a
    psycho so she has to pick her moment carefully.

    Yep, I am pretty sure that is it. I believe it can send the logs via email
    so I would assume that is what he has set up.

  6. Are you familiar with Knoppix? Download it and burn to a CD...Boot off
    it and it's an entire (easy to use) operating system that runs off the CD.
    No Windows based keylogger ever gets loaded and she can not only use her
    computer safely, but she can even explore her harddrives for keystroke
    recorder logs. ;)

    Those logs could be anywhere. Best thing to do is once the boyfriend is
    gone, do a search on the HD for any files modified in the last day.

    I like this idea a LOT! My only concern is (having looked at the download process seems daunting for the novice. So I
    will recommend she orders a CD from one of the links on the site.

    Thank you very much for this!

  9. Hell no! They deserve each other. I foresee a long and happy marriage coming
    with them spending their entire sad little lives playing mind-games with each
    other, and just think, with them locked into this marriage it will prevent
    either of them ruining anyone else's lives.

    Get rid of the boyfriend, change all locks, change address (if
    possible), get a panic alarm installed, back up any files that are
    wanted on the PC, then do a complete reinstall, take legal advice
    about what to do in the event of any action the boyfriend might take
    against your friend, above all be a good friend to her because she's
    going to need someone.

    I had problems when I finally managed to get rid of my ex, who was
    breaking into my home after he'd moved out, and I feared for my safety
    and that of my children. I arranged to contact a friend first thing
    every morning to say I was OK. My friend also always knew where I was
    going and when I was home again. I've since moved a few miles away
    and the ex can't be bothered with us any more.

    troll v.,n. To utter a posting on Usenet designed to attract predictable
    responses or flames. Derives from the phrase "trolling for newbies"; which
    in turn comes from mainstream "trolling";, a style of fishing in which one
    trails bait through a likely spot hoping for a bite.

    you might want to order it for her:
    if she is being logged, and she wants to dump him, you expect her to just
    put in her credit card number???

    I took a look at the above mentioned program, It writes the log to the file
    I don't see anywhere to customixe it except to change the install directory.
    Check here first and if you don't see it then search all hard drives for
    Ctfmon. there also doesn't seem to be any password protection, just a hide
    icon option. the default unhide is ctrl + alt + shift + F. Maybe you'll
    get lucky and he wasn't bright enough to change it...Try it out and see what
    happens...I have to go uninstall this now

    Oh, one more thing, It also logs the windows you open so it will show what
    you look at as well as what you type.

  15. *Moi?* A troll?

    And I thought I just suffered from a healthy scepticism derived from surviving
    two marriages.

    Sorry I can't answer the question you're asking, but I would love to
    know how she found the keylogger in the first place. I think I may
    have one on my computer.

    If anyone has someone checking on them like that, either of you, then
    you need to get away from that person.

    The following will find and remove Keylogger Trojans.

    Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --

    It is a self-extracting ZIP file that contains the Kixtart Script Interpreter { Kixtart is CareWare } 4 batch files, 6 Kixtart scripts, one Link
    (.LNK) file, a PDF instruction file and two utilities; UNZIP.EXE and WGET.EXE. It will
    simplify the process of using; Sophos, Trend, Kaspersky and McAfee Anti Virus Command
    Line Scanners to remove viruses, Trojans and various other malware.

    C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
    This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal Mode.
    This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
    The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the PC.

    You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you can
    download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded the files
    needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key
    during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe
    Mode. It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

    When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive PDF help

    To use this utility, perform the following...
    Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
    Choose; Unzip
    Choose; Close

    Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
    { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

    NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go through your
    FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

    * * * Please report back your results * * *

    There was an earlier post by the person that said they didn't want to
    remove it - so the person would not be alerted - they wanted to see what
    the logger contained to see what was being tracked.
