How to tell if youre being spied on the Computer?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My husband filed for divorce 2 1/2 weeks ago and I dont trust him. Does anyone know how one would tell if he has a spyzapper (or whatever they are called) program on my computer? He made a comment like "The computer knows everything." I do personal business pertaining to the divorce and what not. Thanks again ladies =)

Can you install an antispy software program?

I really would have had to retort to that..."Well at least SOMEBODY around here does!"

I agree...can you install a program to block any spying agents? Also check the programs list to see if he's installed anything.

I'm also not sure that I'd be able to live in the same house with someone that had filed to divorce me. He does know that they can't start to finalize the divorce until he's lived apart from you a certain number of days, right?? I know the situation is different than most because you rent from his mother, but I'd still make his life miserable...he'd come home to find his underwear hanging in the tree in the front yard...ROFL

Can't you have someone look at the computer, like a professional? I don't think Spyware catches everything.

I have heard of programs called -Keyloggers- that track everything a person does online, not sure how to detect if they are on your computer or not, but like someone else said, maybe have a professional look it over to be sure.

I googled it and found this: http://411-spyware.com/remove-keyloggers/ seems like it'd be a good start.

To the naked eye, you can't tell if you have one installed... they're pretty sneaky. You would need to scan the computer manually (or have a professional do it).

If he installed anything, it would be the keylogger. It's hard to find if you don't know what you are looking for!

Well first I'll start by saying that I'm very computer challenged, so don't take anything I say literally. But if someone is very computer savvy, I think they can find ways to get lots of info and track things without you knowing. The only reason I say this is because my brother is VERY computer savvy, and I know when he was going through a breakup, he could read his ex's emails and get her password somehow and figure out all kinds of things I'm sure she didn't want him to know. So if you're doing something you don't want him to see, you should probably use a computer somewhere else and make a new email address, password and everything.
