    Thanks. I'll try setting up a LAN . I think I can follow the instructions in the Windows Help section. If not, I'll check back. Very good/understandable answer, by the way.

Could you please let me know with what chat program she used to chat with? Actually, it's not recommended since you are going to use a keylogger or other hackers' tools and if you are not expert with those tools, you won't be able to use them. Also there are lots of risks involved. And most of all, you will need to buy them :(. I also heard that there are lots of licensed products to capture the activities of screens for a session or for a specific session, but the thing is that to use those tools effectively, you'll need some training and experience as well. The main thing is that, you'll need to set up everything on your daughter's computer, instead of yours.

If she's chatting on skype, you can access her computer and check the history, you can get history of upto 30 days in Skype Chat.

Well, you can set up a home network and access her computer through "Remote Desktop Connection" but while the connection is established, you won't be able to do anything except watching what she'll be doing otherwise you'll be easily detected by your daughter. If you can do that, set up the LAN while she's absent, test the "Remote Desktop Connection" before she starts using the computer, keep them connected and also you'll need to keep her computer on before she starts using it, otherwise she'll need to confirm the connection everytime you try to establish with her computer.

Well, one more question, do you know how to set up the connection? There are specific steps, knowledge and skills involved. Most computer users cannot do it unless trained.

Let me know with more details if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to join a room

Follow the steps mentioned below :

1.Visit Yahoo's home page.
2.Click the 'Sign In' link and enter your username and password in the fields provided.
3.Click on 'Groups' in the list of services on the Yahoo home page.
4.Select a chat room that sounds like one you'd like to join by clicking on its name.
5.Enter the chat room by clicking on the 'Join This Group' link. You will be taken to a page where you'll need to enter some brief information before joining.
6.Create a profile if you don't have one so others you are chatting with can view things like your hobbies and your picture if you choose. However, be sure not to reveal too much personal information in your profile, such as your phone number or address.

Start Chatting :

1.Have a look around after you have registered to enter the chat room. You can view messages that other members are leaving, read their profiles and browse archives of message histories to get to know the chat room.
2.Say hello once you get comfortable. You can do this by clicking on 'Start Topic' and then typing your message in the fields provided and clicking 'Send.' A simple introduction is as appropriate for your first message in a chat room as it is at a party or anywhere else.
3.Enjoy your chatting experience! Messages are added almost constantly so there is almost always something new to read and comment on.

My teenage daughter is having conversations on line that I can't


If you Google Computer Monitoring Software you will get many ideas about available software that can be installed.

You can also consider these "helps":

1) Open the Browser that is most (or always) used and select (for Internet Explorer) View>Explorer Bar>History. This will give a list of every site visited within certain time periods. Of course if she is "too smart" she may delete the History when she is done. There is a small "x" on the top right corner to close the History window when you are done.

2) If you are familiar with using Windows Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer) you can look in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Cookies and then Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files to get an idea of what sites are being visited. (You can access Windows Explorer by going to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Windows Explorer.)

3) If she uses an Instant Messenger, like AIM there are log files you can search for. Click on Start>Search and enter log. Usually you can double-click the results that are shown because they are usually text files.

Good luck....from a father of 3 girls.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wireless connection using livebox and belkin usb adaptor

You most likely need to reconfigure the livebox settings. The Livebox lost the settings because it was unplugged too long. Most router settings can be accessed by typing in or in the URL address bar of any web browser. From there, make sure that all other switches and devices on the network are on the same network. Meaning if your Livebox default gateway is make that the switch that other devices are connecting to the network through are assigned the IP address 192.168.1.x where x is any number other than 1. I hope this help, I know its not comprehensive enough but once I'm a 'Guide' you will be able to chat with. Then we can have conversation via IM Chat. This is my area of expertise.

Vista chat rooms

Which chat you are talking about?

Most of the chat server uses Java applets. So, you may need to install Java plugins in your computer.

Go to and install Java. You should be able to chat without any issues

Good luck!
