    Make sure to untick the Backup CD unless you want one ;)

    that's one scary piece of software! protect your children by recording their every move and poring through it all later??? it's basically DIY spyware...

    sorry, but every use of that software i can think of is dodgy...

    Yes, and if your internet paranoia is up you could think this - I've never heard of this company or software - what better way to get your hands on confidential information than to give away 50,000 free copies of some 'guardian' software and have people willingly install it? Genius and sure beats fake bank phishing emails.

    if you check out their site, their marketing involves giving away software to schools etc too... i agree you'd have to be crazy to install a comprehensive system logger from an unknown company, especially one that you get for free...

    Nooo ... could somebody seriously do that?? I can't tell whether the paranoia here is with the original concept of spying software or with you two. Luckily I couldn't be bothered either way - either in spying or in worrying about someone else spying. Does make you wonder what some people get up to though.

    unfortunately, very easily!

    i think most people would be very surprised at the lack of privacy on the internet (and with computers in general) if they understood the technical details... it's easy to have a great illusion of anonymity when you are sitting at home on your computer...

    as an aside, the mandatory internet filtering schemes that the Australian Government are currently threatening us with are the equivalent, in snail mail terms, of the Government opening and reading EVERY SINGLE PARCEL OR PIECE OF MAIL YOU EVER SEND OR RECEIVE...

    privacy, identity fraud and freedom of speech are all massive and very real issues as we zoom into cyberspace...

    How so? I don't understand the mechanics of how they could possibly get access to that kind of info.

    I dunno if I'd be calling my product Pandora personally. The connotations of opening pandora's box trouble me :)
  • admin2009/01/02 18:53:11
    chuckling away - just googled "pc pandora" and up pops a google keyword ad with the title "Catch a Cheating Spouse" and a link through to pcpandora. There really is a lot about this programme that puts me off.....but I can see it would have application for some people.

    Review on the full payfor version here on PCMag.

    Thanks for the review link donkey, this is exactly what I wanted since Miss 15 and her friends can be very naughty sometimes. ;)

    If there's a webcam attached, the utility can even snap images—a feature that might reveal your naughty child logging in under your nice child's user account! + montior web chat.

    and then? you confront them and say what? that you've got proof because you've been spying on them, recording their every move and playing it back later?

    sounds messy...
  • lilpretzel2009/01/02 21:36:20
    Well to protect our kids it does get messy ;)

    i'm not saying it's easy, but i sincerely doubt the spying approach...

    firstly, from a purely ethical perspective i don't think it's right...

    but, more importantly from a parenting viewpoint i don't think it's an effective way to go about things... once you have to let on that you've been spying you've set a nasty precedent, no? your own behaviour is then suggesting that completely disregarding other people's privacy is acceptable...

    and then they will never trust you in the same way again, and they'll really go behind your back instead... and if they are smart they'll find a way around things, and hey, maybe even use your own methods on you!

    blocking access to inappropriate material is one thing (which the PC Mag review says this software is not good at), but logging your kid's every move, well.........

    Hahaha - had to pull this thread back up after reading this article yesterday about spyware. Who would have thought Valentines had a murky, dark underbelly!
