I would like to know a way besides using the Temp Internet Files to see what my kids get in their Hotmail accounts, and what web sites they see. They can delete anything they want and cover their tracks. I created a Temp Internet File in Windows Help but when they deleate the files from the original Temp Internet File the stuff in the Help Temp File also gets deleated. Any ideas?

You could try using an undelete program, one which would allow you to recover files even after they have been removed from the recycle bin. You can find some of these programs at

You could also use on of the many monitoring and blocking software package that are out there, like Net Nanny or Cybersurf. Some of these programs have log files that show which pages were blocked.

Can you print out the history if it has not been deleted?

To MEIguy2000: there is a power supply checker that you can buy at places like compusa. i saw one the other day. or if you have an old spare motherboard handy with video and memory. you can hook it up and short the contacts that turn the power on to see if it works.

To Ian Dixon: this is a Win32 WINSPOOL core component. in's the driver that you use when you click to print a page to a printer. delete it, and poof, no print. you can copy it back from your windows cd to where it belongs. on a windows 98 system it goes here: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM. look to see if it's there.
