View Full Version : I need a keystroke capturer...
11-25-03, 02:47 AM
My roomate insists on getting on my computer when I am not at home, rotinley I find programs that were running have been closed, new sights on my history when I cleared the History before I left. Things of that sort.
I have come to the conclusion that any information that she enters into my computer withought my permission is MINE!
Now im not going to steal her CC# or anything like that, I just want a nice indiscreate program I can minimize onto my Notification toolbar that will save any information onto a text file, so I can either blackmail her with it or just spy on her.
Now, I am normally not a very spitefull person, but when you enter my room withought my say-so, get on my computer withought my permission, and start looking through my stuff I find that extremelly rude, akin to if I were to enter her room and start rummaging through her drawers.
I may be a bad person, but she is worse!

If you're running 2000 or XP you could password protect the computer.
Here's a logger if you need one though:

I find when I password protect my peer to peer download programs don't run, which is kinda the point of having my computer running when im out in the first place.
You could password protect the screen saver. If she restarts, you could have a password protected boot up, also.

At one point, ThinkGeek had a inline keystroke logger that you connected to your keyboard PS/2 cord and then plugged into your machine.
Can't seem to find it now. gnmish.gearbinder.ring.warden.sullon.zek
What's the point of wearing your favorite rocketship underpants if nobody ever asks to see 'em?

You could do a little work on your case to physically block access to the power button, unless one has the key (which will be on your keychain)

I have my computer turn off the monitor after 5 minutes and also apply a blank screensaver. Set it to "On resume, password protect" so when someone turns the monitor on they have to input the password.
As far as peer-to-peer programs, they should be running in the background still. I've never had a problem doing this. What peer-to-peer programs are you using? The above solution should work with eMule/eDonkey, kazaalite, and WinMX...at least as far as I know. Edited by: Mithrilhall at: 11/25/03 8:29 am

Any chance of a bedroom door lock? Not to claim the status of a "real professional" in any one endeavor has been a small price to pay for the many benefits and pleasures of trespassing. ~Leo Lionni
he doesnt want to limit her access.. he wants to capture what she is doing on his machine..
Limiting her access would be so easy he wouldnt of needed to bring it here.

Ctrl alt del. choose lock computer.
Windows key and L is a short cut as well.
It will lock the workstation and leave every thing you had running there......
