Getting proof- Computer help

Hi,

I need some help. I think DH is cheating. In fact, now that I've had some time to think about it (he's out of town) I'm sure of it. I have very strong intuition and I've been letting him talk me out of my worries with his "logical" explanations. Well, that's over now. I know what I feel. I need proof. I've read about computer programs before that can record all internet activity and downloads. I'm looking for one that will work with a mac computer and it will need to be discreet. I have the admin password to this computer so I won't have trouble. DH always cleans up his internet history and I know he downloads things and stores them at external sourses. So I need something that will take snapshots of what he writes, his internet history, and what he does on this computer. Can anyone help me??

You can do that and do it well however you need you be VERY careful about privacy laws. SO check them for your state. You might try spokeo.com or yoname.com for checking social sites like Myspace and Facebook. Google key loggers or spy ware just remember to cover yourself

Thank you. Since this is my computer too, am I still subject to privacy laws? I'm not really concerned about the social networks because I believe dh is cheating within his network of friends. He knows WAY more people than I do and is out pretty often when I'm tied down with work and school. (He doesn't work and doesn't go to school so he has lots of free time).

"Google key loggers or spy ware just remember to cover yourself"

What does this mean?

Also, I looked at a program called web watchers (Here: http://www.webwatchernow.com/) and it is great, but not for Macs. Too bad.

Thanks again, I need all the help I can get!

OOOPS I was referring to his computer or any other computer. I would love to remotely deploy one of these on my H's computers but I don't think his boss would like it and I'd be breaking MA laws.
UGH

Oh okay. Well, he doesn't have a work computer because he doesn't work and this is the only computer in our house and he's on it all the time when I'm at work and school. We both own it.

Oh, and I think you missed my question above, but what does this mean:

""Google key loggers or spy ware just remember to cover yourself""??

This is very discreet and worked perfectly for me.

Well it means to be very careful and don't let him know you are looking for proof. Make sure you have positive 100% caught him or he could go deeper and hide more. Copy everything and put it in safe a place, in the hands of your attorney or a trusted friend. Make sure you keep good logs of how much how often etc. DOCUMENT EVERYTHING!
Best of luck with your search and stay strong!

I've become a FIRM believer in key loggers.

I have no clue about the legal ramifications of using snooping programs, or if they can be used legally.
