Now heres the deal. I suspect my bro is stacking porn on his pc but as i havent got his access password to his account on windows xp, i cant prove it. However, if here was a utility that can be downloaded that is small, that can allow me to learn his password, while he leaves his pc unattended for a short time, i could then use it to access his account when he is away. the thing is, i dont want to accuse him without proof.

Any suggestions?

if he's old enough to find it and know what it is, he's old enough to have it. Perhaps he is ready for "the talk" rather then punishment for a natural part of a males growing up.

But have some respect for privacy and make sure you only do this in the presence of your parents, not to get some free porn you little you...

He will probably have to remove all the spyware from the PC when the little one gets it infected from going to those kind of sites.

But, aside from that..... there might be less to this than meets the eye, Bucksnort sees this.

You sir are an idiot.

First of all, a 4 year old could find a porn site, they make up half the internet. Typing in a URL wrong can net you a porn site. You can literally stumble into one.

Second of all, porn is bad mkay. Just because you can't control your bodily urges doesn't mean you should tell this guy not to.

Third of all, why do you care?

That'd be the only way. Pull the harddrive out, plug it into your computer below your harddrive as a slave, then it's a seperate drive you can access through your computer. The absolute easiest way to do this is if you have a spare enclosure to pop it into, but most people don't.

Just because you think porn is bad and that people should control natural urges doesn't mean other people should.:roll:

This is a little naive. When kids surf the web these days, unless parents are very vigilant, porn finds them, whether they are old enough or not.

Not to say I approve of brother 1 hacking brother 2's operating system. I would still go to mom and dad.

Porn is bad. It is not natural. Sex is natural. Selling sex is not natural. Selling is commerce. Commerce is manmade. Using your body in ways it wasn't intended to, multiple partners over short periods of time for extended periods of time, is a bodily hazard and unnatural. Mixing a bad biological decision with commerce is not natural. It similar, albeit more serious, to the portrayal of SUPERSIZE ME. Bad eating habbits and cheap food is very similar to the act of making pornography. Problem is that the Porn Industry has millions of vewers watching and that drives the actors and actresses to perpetuate their bad decision. Viewers take a small responsibility in their bad decision because free market commerce is built in such a way that supply and demand delagates responsibility of the product to the supplier and consumers. The freedom to voice and believe in your own oppinion doesn't negate basic funamental biologic and marketing truths. I have to equate porn with fast food because the parallels are there, although there are also social points of view that will taboo one and not the other.

zmaster, your mom & dad should be involved in this. If you think he may have an unhealthy behavior, it's ok to say that to them.

As for the technical side, with your parents' approval, try this to start with. Start his computer in Safe Mode (you know how to do this?), and see if there is an Administrator or Owner account visible on the log-in screen that does not normally appear. If so, try it with a blank password and see what happens. If he is the average Windows user, that'll work.

Why not just use a live CD linux distro?
It doesn't require anything other than a CD.
Once you boot the lvie CD, Knoppix automounts the NTFS partitions and you can then access any unencrypted files/directories.

Since when was viewing pornography a "natural" part of a male's growing up? What society do you live in, what species are you, and what were you smoking?

Being interested in sex is a natural part of growning up. It should NEVER be punished. My point is that if he is collecting porn he is not a 4 year old, he is a kid who wants some wanking material as he explores his own growing sexuality. This kid wants proof to get his brother in trouble. That is wrong.

If his parents do not take an active enough part in their sons growning up to notice he is getting interested in sex and to talk to him about it, or if they punish him for it then it is their fault if their son grows up to be ashamed of himself and his own sexuality. My point was its not his responsibility, its his parents. Perhaps he should respect his brother and keep his mouth shut. Its not like drugs or something that will harm him.

And yes now that I think about it, looking at pictures of nude women or porn is a natural part of growing up as a male. I can't think of a person who didn't want to or did get ahold of a playboy as they grew up. Now if its goatse, we need an intervention.
