Opening tmp files from unknown programs

By blu_eyez_ca ·
Okay, I know that my other half has programs instaslled that capture video, sound, and basically monitoring my bedroom and activity. That's fine, except I want to be sure that there aren't any video files that he's saved that I wouldn't want him tohave say if we ever weren't together. How can I open files from TMP folders when I don't have the slightest idea what created them? And I need to do so undetected. I have access to another pc in my sons room that is networked with the pc in question. Pleases help me do some spying of my own. Because let's face it, if you're gonna play games...play dirty!

Opening tmp files from unknown programs

Most tmp files are just that, temporary files.

They are often simple strings of data.

What you need to find are the actual files for the video format used by the capture program.

You can start by doing a search for a set number of days, andsee what pops up.

Stealth is a MUCH bigger problem.
There are a number of places where Windows stores information on recent file activity.
It can take longer to cover your tracks than it will to find the files.

As to browsing from another computer, that has it's own set of problems.
The second computer has to have permission to view the folder contents on the first computer.

Then, if the files are being stored on removable media, such as CD-RW disks, the most you will find is links to the file.

The 'proper' solution to this dilemma, is to sit down and have a serious discussion with your partner.

Next, make an investment in your relationship by seeing a counselor.

Thank you to those that answered my question. As far as the divorce lawyer, I already did that before I met him. He's just an unfortunate victim, as was I , to a cheating partner. I think by now he has figured out that I am not going anywhere. As far as him monitoring everything, I'm sure there is the occasional glance through stuff, but I guess I really am boring when I am alone. Sorry guys, not every woman is having hot cyber sex with her girlfriend when you're not there!!!Who Knows....I'm not here for telling!
