In AVG and Spybot can we specify the keylogger program as safe and to ignore it in the scan?
I appreciate your help.
Okay let me get this straight. Your daughter is 19. Which means that she is no minor and can make choices of her own. Yet you still wish to control her and her PC usage?
How is using a PC going to destroy her life when EVERYTHING in the world revolves around PC's? All major utilties, gov't, universities, schools, just about everything runs off PC's now. Yet you wish to control her.
I am not trying to be mean but what? Come on. My neice is 3 and she has more PC privledges tha your 19 yr old. Yes i set up teh PC not to allow certain images, let alone web sites. There has been no instance of any kind of problme on that PC. Yet here you are trying to install a keylogger.
I am sorry but to me that is a bit over-protective. If the news stories about the MySpace rapist and other such things doesnt deter her you think installing a keylogger on to her PC will stop her? Then what do you do when she uses a school PC or a PC at a library? You gonna try and install keyloggers on all of them as well?
Here is what you do. Sit her down and talk, yes TALK to your 19 year old daughter and warn her of the dangers of using her real name on the web. Warn her never to give out her personal info or pictures to anyone.
Anything short of that and you are only going to be fighting a losing battle. Yeah you can install a keylogger. Maybe even one that can get by AVG and spybot for now. What happens when they get updated and sends her a notice? What do you say then? What happens if she decides to start taking her Laptop with her?
I am sorry for being so rude on this matter but trying to avoid the situation will not solve the problem. TALK to her. Make her understand the seriousness of the internet. Only then can you really prevent problems.
