    A friend needs to access her minor daughter's yahoo email. Any suggestions? All I am thinking is a keystroke logger? Any remommendations on those?

    Don't try to crack a Yahoo password.After three failed atempts it requires a request for to have the password emailed to a previous contact email address.

    A keylogger is probably the best bet, but if the girl is foolish enough to have IE remember the password, you could try this.

    Privacy?

    I think privacy is a mute point when the teen's behavior could get her killed ;)

    could always run Ethereal and capture the data packets for her computer and strip the password that way. No need to install anything. I've done it to my kids.

    Me Network, my rules. I've told them that. I don't want a summons to court for my kids downloading pirated stuff, etc.
