Hi to you all. I've not been around for ages. Lot's has been going on......

Anyway, something rather bad has happened and I need to find out if when you look at your internet history, is there any way of finding out the time in which sites are looked at?

The way ours works is, click on GO (at the top of the page) then select HISTORY, we have ours set up so that you can see what has been looked at day by day and then week by week.

In a nut shell, it looks like Richard's 12 year old has accessed some VERY naughty websites and we need to confront him with as much evidence as we can.

Before anyone sugests that it could have been Richard, he's not thick enough to leave the 'evidence' lying around for me to find, he would have deleted the history. His son hasn't got a clue how to do that. Besides, his reaction to me telling him wasn't that of someone who had been 'caught'.

Thanks if you can help!!

Im guessing your not using Internet Explorer?, but to do this in internet explorer you get the history column down the left hand side by cliking View > Explorer Bar > History

Once this is up you can right click on the individual site and click properties, this should then bring up the time.

Go easy on him :redface:

Kate if you think it is the lad then no need to get the times the sites were accessed, just confront him and bluff him out.
It may well be a good idea to give him his own user name and then place parental controls on that name and change passwords so he cannot use the adult name.
I can remember my son doing that and clicking on one of those dialling web sites.....grounded for a fortnight!! lol

Not sure going easy on him is going to be an option. Richard didn't sound at all happy.

I tried the right clicking, but no PROPERTIES appears.

I think ours is Mozilla Firefox

This might sound a silly question, but how do you bluff them out?

I've had a look and it is very much like u-tube only...not. It is VERY graphic and is like they are home done and been uploaded.

IF you do remember (PLEASE) please let me know! Putting a time line on it Richard and I will be able to know where all of the kids were at around those times.

i would just use the content advisor and parental controls ! set age access for his

screen name ! then when he tries to log on hey presto no more adult sites!

speaking for aol u can actualy get an e-mail sent from the i.s.p telling you where

when the user had accesesed during his or her session which is good should u

want to track there movements ! and im sure that in mozila ahs a place that

stores the cookies and internet files from various sessions and they are time

stamped !START/ CONTROL PANEL/internet options /genral tab/settings /view files

they should all then be in a line with dates and times!!! hope this helps best wishes leigh

Little bugger!

Tell him, if he keeps on looking at that sort of stuff, he'll turn into his dad ;)

Can you not get parental computer blocking type stuff that can prevent him accessing those sorts of websites?

Hope you sort it out bird!

Yikes I was just kidding!:eek: I'm naive enough to have thought that most of such sites required age verification though. If so that's something worth looking into. Personally I sit with my kids (or at least in the room) when they're online. I realise that can be impractical though. At least I can prevent them from accessing vile crap like scubabrucie.:)

My sympathies - I had a similar problem with my lad when he was about 13.

When I first confronted him he denied it. He later admitted it and said he was just 'curious'.

I'm afraid my answer to this was to tell him never ever again was he to download anything like that onto my pc. And to get himself some magazines instead.

It doesn't help to make them feel guilty or 'dirty'. I'm not condoning it, but if they're going to look at stuff like that anyway, mags can be relatively safer. (depending on the source, of course!)

I think I'd go for "tellyou what sonny, here's a bit of paper, you write down every website you've been on and you won't get a bollocking for every one that's down there. Any others I find you will get a bollocking for." I don't know anyone who can write down every dodgy site they've ever been on.

Or failing that you could do the "is there something you're curious about" talk, possibly offering to let him come in and watch you and his dad at it. That will put him off ever dicking about on the internet ever again. Not because of you, obviously, more the sight of his dad on the job. No-one ever needs to see that.

Personally the embarassment will do the job nicely. You won't need to kick his arse. But I'd ban him from playing on the computer for a bit.

Oh, and I'd let Richard do the job when you're away for a bit. There is the off chance it was him and he'd rather pin it on the boy, and there isn't much worse for a kid than getting a bollocking for something he didn't do. So if you're not there then he can pretend like he's had a chat about it. That said, you're both adults so I can't see the motivation to lie, unless it's really really dirt. In which case send us a link.

Frosty, try dailymotion.com - you have to log in but it's free and you don't get spam or owt from it. They are like youtube but without the moderation. The log in is to verify you are an adult. Which having an e-mail address doesn't prove, but ho hum. I have a giggle on there because they have all sorts of comedy practical jokes played on people, some of which go a bit wrong. In fact, I can't think of one I've seen on there that hasn't gone a bit wrong.

Digs.

Kate,

I use FF and this is what I have just done to find the details for you.

Go into Windows Explorer:

C:>Documents & Settings>**Username**>Local Settings>History>**Date Range**

This should open up in the left pane a list of sites, left click on each one in turn and you will see the details, including time, open up in the right pane.

HTH

All this said, if I had kids I'd probably rather they were looking at dirt than taking drugs or being chavs. Might be worth inviting all their mates over for a porn night, where you let them get their hands on unregulated internet for a whole hour. That said, you'd probably have a letter from the school in a matter of minutes. But they'd enjoy themselves!

Digs.

the BT explorer has pretty good parental controls on it. My son can only access websites I 'allow' and I get a report telling me which ones he has accessed. It does get tedious though haivng to password every new site, but he hasn't tried the adult sites yet. No doubt he will in a couple of years.

Good luck sorting it out, Kate :)
