Dec 31, 2010 12:39AM PST

Hey everyone.

I have two children who live away from me far in another town. I don't have any access to thier computer. I am looking for a Good powerful spyware which have the following function.
When i send them a file in a message and the read and open the file, the software automatical collect and send me back thier password and every other activity that they are carry out on thier laptops.

If any one knows any free Spyware which can perform that function they should let me know. Please be sure it works either you have use it before or seen others use it.

Some Clarity Needed..

When you ask about the 'ultimate remote spyware', is it your (hopeful) intent to obtain their passwords and spy on them without their knowledge?

OR.. is it with their knowledge and your goal is to help them keep safe?

You say they will be safer if you spy on them?

If I were to believe that, I would say I'm sure they will practice safer computing habits, if they know you're watching.

Putting that aside, you're NOT going to find such a program. Free or paid. If all it took to access a computer, was a matter of sending an email, the internet as you presently know it, would no longer exist.

You're better off looking in their (glass) windows, if you want to find out what they're doing. The remote software you are referring to, won't work unless BOTH parties are involved. You're only wasting your time, if you try to find what you're looking for.

That I never found such software. Either on purpose or not.

My answer is there is no such thing. You can imagine if there was, there would be no economic activity on the internet!

I think they are spyware out the which can collect password fromn people without thier knowledge from a remote distance it is just that people are afraid to sell or put such a thing online.
If you say no such software exist then why it is onlione that Reomte Spyware for Sell? Why is it call Remote if it can not give you someones password with you touching the person laptop?.

I want to learn clarify me.

If there was such an app, the losses would be so great that no one would dare use the internet for anything.

Let me be clear. There is no such app.

Installing spyware onto another person's computer with the express purpose of spying on them and obtaining their passwords is illegal under most circumstances and jurisdictions and, by your own admission, you are not authorized to access their computers. Thus, this thread is locked.

My only suggestion: If you worry about the children's safety, suggest to their legal guardian, the one with authorized access to the computers, that he/she install parental control software.
