I'm tired of my roomate downloading torrent files and crap on my computer. I want to know what websites he is going to. He wipes the explorer history clean, but yet there are torrent files on my computer! I want to throw all the evidence in his face! Does anyone know of a free keylogger that is not noticable? I noticed that you have to pay for most of them :( I'm using Windows 7 64-Bit. Thanks for the help!

You have the evidence. If there are torrent files on your machine, that's the evidence. If it's your computer, just tell him to stay off. Password the system and problem over.

Definitely password protect your system and if he is computer experienced, maybe use also a BIOS password to prevent him from doing ANYTHING on it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

✔ Best Answer
Key board loggers are illegal without a warrant or the other persons consent. You will have to look for them on your own sorry.

Just do as other suggest which is kick him off of your computer. You could try setting up your firewall to do content filtering on well known bit-torrents like Demon, Lime Wire, Win MX, Mega Torrent, ISO Hunt and so on.

Here is a list of well known torrents...

just block the domains on your firewall.

If your room mate wants to use your PC, request him to follow your rules. If you still continue allowing him to use, create an account with limited privilege that won't be able to install any programs and let him use it. Agree with what other suggests too, the best way is to ask him to get his own computer.
