Q: xxx tracking

I work for a very small company and we are set-up with a very simple peer to peer network through a DSL router with Qwest. Well some times I'll stray to a porn site then stop and clean all cookies, temp, ect and yes I know I really should stop. Could my boss ever go back and ask Qwest records and track to my computer ??

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi windseaker,

It wouldn't be rocket science for Qwest to track and report (to your boss or anyone else) what sites your company's computers have been accessing. More likely, if your boss wanted to know what you've been doing on the computer, he'd install (if he's saavy at all) a keylogger that tracks what you do, including taking an occasional snapshot of the screen at sites you go to, saves a list of web addresses that have been accessed, etc. and will also give a good indication of anything else done on the PC (open windows, programs used, etc., saves it to a file and emails it to him (that's how a lot of the keyloggers work these days).

Hope this helps,

Wayne

A:How would i know if my isp were tracking me.

Hi Xnefoo. Could I ask you to be a bit more specific. I mean, your ISP can tell where you travel on the internet by your IP address. I'm not sure if that's what you mean or something a little more cloak and dagger.

Is there a way within Windows Vista to track all operations a computer does throughout any given day? I understand there are key logger programs etc. out there but is there any way to see what is being done on my computer without any extra software? I'm concerned an unauthorized user is sitting down at my pc and logging in without my knowledge or permission. I have passwords in place, of course, but I just want to see if they have logged on somehow and, if they have, what are they doing? I'm basically looking to find evidence of someone tampering on my machine. I'll take the necessary steps to stop them, but I want to catch them first. Any suggestions?

Hey, i want to know if it is possible to trace one of my msn contacts. I have this contact that is abusing me and all my friends, i know i know the person but its really bugging me on who it is! has anyone got a tutorial or any idea on how i can find out who it is?

A:Tracking?

You can find there ip address,for example send them a pic or something(tell them its of a hot girl/guy or whatever)

Open up command propt type in netstat -an

There you'll find there ip address(after a quick look around),tell them you have it and you will be in contact with there isp(find there ip using the tools at dnsstuff.com)

That should scare them enough too tell you who they are

Or you could just ban the user from contacting you!!

Have a look through the tutorials here you may find something,I dont no of one off hand,have a look through the ones on my site,you may find something.

Hope that helped you some bit

Hello,

I would like to ask you about using Team foundation Server as bug tracking system.

Already we are using Countersoft Gemini, this is one of many bug tracking application.
Because we started to use repository and build from Team Foundation Server, we consider also migrating bug tracking system to TFS work items.
What do you think about this?
Can TFS be utilized as complete bug tracking system with time logging and issue managements functionality?
Do you have any experiences with migration from other bug tracker to TFS?

Thanks for answers

 we recently  invested in a new computer. Lenovo.  It has Windows 8.  per recommendation we installed kaspersky (sp?)  Virus protection.  I was happy with Av and could figure it out but this was what we were told to do  (by Geek Squad)
 
 I can figure out how to run the virus scan,  can clear history but there doesn't seem to be anything for tracking?
 
 even if I clear cookies there is still tracking.
 
 we have firefox as the browser.
 
I am still trying to figure this whole system out, but if you can advise about tracking...without installing a gazillion other things,  that would be super.  Thank you so much.

I have a laptop through work. While investigating, I have found that my sister's boyfriend has made periodoc visits to undesirable websites and downloaded files. Other then erasing internet files, history, cookies etc, is there any other way one could find out this computer has been to such sites? I was told that even though one deletes, windows still keeps files on the hard drive. Is this correct and how would one erase such fies. Thanks in advance....

I really dont want to get too involved with this situation but you can set up a keylogger, a secretly running program that saves every key typed on the keyboard to a file, thus allowing you to see where they have been and what they typed to get there.

Google "keylogger" for more info.

A:GPS and SIM Tracking

Disable all Location Services and verify which applications make use of it - - usually you can deny them.

As to SIM tracking; I believe that can only be done by the cell phone provider and you have no control over it, as it is necessary to allow service when you move about from on cell tower to another.

Hello all.

Me and several of my friends have some strange behaviour in our computers. All running on Win XP and Outlook express.
When a mail is sent and a single picture is included, and opened by the receiver with the picture viewer in Windows XP. Then it is possibe , with the 2 arrows in the bottom of the viewer, to move back and forth to see banners, icons and pictures from internet pages that the sender (or maybe other persons) and yourself has visited earlier. Allthough you have only included one single picture in the mail. The picture seems to keep its original size but the mail is several kilobyte larger even though it should contain nothing else but the picture.

(If the same mail is opened in Win 2000 I can?t see any history)

Have anyone noticed this before and what kind of virus/malware/spy shoul I search for?

I recently received an email from my internet provider informing me that one of my network devices has a spy bot running. My router is password protected. Otherwise, I have a PC, a Mac Book Pro, an LGG4, an iPad Air and a Motorola Droid  attached as permitted devices. All have some form of malware and anti virus and all are pass word protected, for what little good that does. I change passwords regularly, but probably not enouth. Yes, it's probably a fairly simple fix, but it's beyond my meager skills. I regularly run and update SpyBot and Avast on the PC, which is the most likely culprit other than the phones, and have seen some odd things, mostly files not being able to be accessed for scanning.

One of the computers at my dad's office has been hacked. The person who hacked it has been using it as a front for downloading pirated software and porn. The IT guy checked for viruses, looked at their firewall logs and everything, but couldn't find out what was going on. They called the ISP, and got the IP address changed, but the next day the person got back into it.

I'm sure they will get security experts out there to take care of it, I was just wondering, how could the hacker get back into this computer after the IP was changed??? They are pretty sure it wasnt an "inside job". Does this mean maybe another computer or router their was hacked, or there is a keylogger installed maybe? I am curious as to how the hacker found the computer with a different IP.
 

A:IP Tracking???

The simplest way would to have a trojan "call home" program installed. Then, there is no need to know the IP address at all.
All Trojans are not necessarily detected by all antivirus programs.

Download WinPFInd http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/file...r/WinPFind.zip and extract it to your C:\ folder. This will create a folder called WinPFind in the C:\ folder.

Download Track qoo http://www.geekstogo.com/downloads/Trackqoo.zip
Save it somewhere you will remember like the Desktop. Unzip the Track qoo.vbs inside to your desktop. DO NOT run it yet!

Reboot into Safe Mode
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.!


Inside C:\WinPFind is a file called WinPFind.exe. Double-click on this file to launch the program. Once it is launched, click on the Start Scan button and wait for it to finish. This program will scan large amounts of files on your computer for known patterns so please be patient while it works as it can take a while, upwards to 30 minutes or more.! Once the Scan is Complete it will make a txt file (log) of what was found.

1. Go to the WinPFind folder
2. Locate WinPFind.txt
3. Please post those results in your next post!

REBOOT to normal mode.

Double Click on "Track qoo.vbs"

Note - If you Antivirus has Script Blocking, you will get a Pop Up Windows asking you what to do. Allow this Entire Script to Run, its harmless!

Wait a few seconds and a notepad page will pop up, Copy & Paste those results and place them in the next post along with the results of WinPFind!

So I need the following tool logs..

It is used on almost all good websites as a means of tailoring the site to a visitor's neads. This site uses it to prevent our images being used on other websites without permission. Some firewall, gateway or proxy software blocks referer information, which will cause you to always see the "Hotlinking" image, rather than the image.""

I recently purchased a Logitech MX Revolution that tracks...well like ****. My MX 310 tracks much better and I must have bought that mouse over 6 years ago. The MX Revolution's movements are erratic jumping slightly in different directions making for poor linear movements. Moreover, the MX Revolution tracks terribly on different surfaces compared to the MX 310, which can track well on most

Any ideas for why this might be happening?

Tracking your Emails Email Tracking is an essential ingredient of good communication procedure To know Email Tracking that the recipient has opened your mail is as fundamental as sending it I use MSGTAG for my QE workhorse with Bananatag Signals Sidekick and Whoreadme for Gmail and Outlook com They all work perfectly allowing for a handful of failures due to Systems Server or user security configurations These programs are all free so even if you lose a few notifications it matters little Infinitely better than none at all where your mail simply disappears into the far blue yonder and from then on you know nothing From my own experience the success rate must be over failures being negligible MSGTAG use a tiny hidden image which on a few systems can be detected by the Email AV scanner and the mail dumped in the Spam or Junk folder It happens very rarely but definitely does on MS Outlook com I have had no problems getting notifications back from Gmail or Yahoo Bananatag and Signals Sidekick use a hidden pixel which is activated on the mail being opened I have had no problems so far with this method Bananatag sends an Email notification whilst Signals Sidekick produces a pop-up on screen with a receipt digit displayed on the icon and an entry on the drop-down list Whoreadme uses a manual addon to the address which you have to add - example - joesoap blabla com whoreadme com Whoreadme gives an Email notification which includes a location map IP Server Windows version Browser and lots more personal data Location geographically fails when a proxy is used by the recipient - Outlook com and Gmail have such proxies Example -your buddy two blocks away is shown to be in California etc But apart from this all other locations are fairly accurate I have had notifications back for many Government departments Local Authorities military and the Police and even got one from the UK Prime Minister s address

Ok I have these traking cookies that keep showing up several times a day, every day. atdmt being the most notorious.

I keep running my spyware software and it removes them but later on when i run it again there they are. I've tried 3 different (well known) antispyware and I get the same result.

I thought it must have been a website I kept checking everyday but it's not since i removed some tracking cookies, I had all my browsers closed and I was just watching movies and reading pdfs when I decided to run it again and there they were.. sitting there mocking me.

any ideas on how to prevent tracking cookies from coming back? I think there must be a way in the web browsers' options.

Even once you're logged in to the https site? In the past, there were no tracking bugs.

My question is this: If I post the .dat files text in here, can one of you tell me how to see what program is doing this? This isn't malware or spyware or another type virus. Trust me.

At my daughters in London, they also have Rogers. On my account in Barrie, It shows my usage has gone up twice the normal and result in extra charge s(over 95Gb). I have been downloading a lot of programs in London. Should these be a part of my daughters account,, or does the ISP trace your computer usage, no matter where you are? Thanks.

I dont know rogers, but talktalk have a facility to see broadband usage by day. see if it has the facility, and what days you have downloaded and if you where at the barrie location

it should be based on the connection and not related to the PC at all - also you may have 4 or 5 PCs connected and those PCs used at various different locations and ISPs

What exactly does database tracking refer to? My web search came up empty
 

A:Database Tracking

Usually it means that the database is set up to keep a log of who and when any data is entered, changed or deleted.

Most database development software offers some level of automated tracking. Some of these are harder to use and some are easier to use. Sometimes, the database developer will opt to write his own tracking code and will set up code and tables in the DB to log when transactions occur, and who performed them.

We once put tracking code in a DB because the users weren't very savy and kept making mistakes, then when the output wasn't what they expected they would report an error in the DB code. We instituted tracking so we could tell whether there really was a code error or simply an user data input error.

Tracking can also used to monitor data entry accuracy and speed and to discourage and trace the entry of fradulent transactions.

Tracking is also used to resolve the transactions between a master database and distributed database replicants.

Hi, You can do what you want with just the features in Windows.
Such as reviewing the History, autocomplete entries, Search toolbar entries, cookies, Temporary Internet Files.

If the person is too aware then you'll have to do something else.

We also do not support the use of keyloggers, however we do feel that there are legitimate uses of some, such as in the business world.

A quick search with Google should show you tons of results.

It's against forum rules to assist you with keyloggers.

Instead of those, try looking for Parental Control software, lots of those types monitor usage like you need to review.

These types of cookies are used to store information between visits to a site and collect identifying information about the user such as surfing behavior or preferences for a specific web site.Session (transient) cookies are not saved to the hard drive, do not collect any information and have no set expiration date. They are used to temporarily hold information in the form of a session identification stored in memory as you browse web pages.

A:Tracking Cookie?

Hello Seasick,these are cookies and not a worm.A cookie is a text string that is included with Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) requests and responses. Cookies are used to maintain state information as you navigate different pages on a Web site or return to the Web site at a later time. This article provides information about cookies.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/260971/?sd=RMVPWhy we remove them..In addition to the privacy issues, cookies carry security implications as well. Many sites use cookies to implement access control schemes of various sorts. For example, a subscription site that requires a user name and password might pass a cookie back to your browser the first time you log in. Thereafter, the site will give you access to restricted pages if your browser can produce a valid cookie, basically using the cookie as an admission ticket. This can have several advantages for the site, not the least of which is that it can avoid the overhead of looking up your user name and password in a database each and every time you access a page. However, unless this type of system is implemented carefully, it may be vulnerable to exploitation by unscrupulous third parties. For instance, an eavesdropper armed with a packet sniffer could simply intercept the cookie as it passes from your browser to the server, using it to obtain free access to the site. Because browsers use the domain name system (DNS) to determine what cookies belong to a server, it is possible to trick a browser into sending a cookie to a rogue server by temporarily subverting the DNS. If the cookie is persistent, of course, it is also vulnerable to being stolen from the user's cookie database file.http://www.w3.org/Security/Faq/wwwsf2.html#CLT-Q10

If you're on this person's Friends list, he can track you that way. Does he know your other Pogo screen names? If so, he has them added to his Friends list as well.

I would suggest that you block this person. This is easy to do and can be done whether you're a regular member or a Club member.

1. Click on your Friends list at the top of your screen.
2. Find this person's name on your Friend list and click the Block link beside it. If you don't have this person on your Friend list then scroll to the bottom of the page to see the Blocked Players List link and click on it.
3. Type in this person's screen name and click Add to Blocked Players.
4. At the bottom of this page, put a check mark in Show my current location to players on My Friend's List only.
4. Do the same thing for all your Pogo screen names.

Now, it doesn't matter what game you're in, they can't see or find you.

If you want to block all messages this person - assuming you're in the Club -
1. Click on the Message tab at the top of your screen.
2. Look to the left of your screen and click on Preferences.
3. Put a check mark in Only accept invitations and messages from players on my Friends List.

It is my hopes to limit my child's time on his computer this summer. We agreed to 1&1/2 hr. per day. But, the honor system is grossly inadequate. Does anyone know of a software that will track how long a computer is in use?

Is there any way to retrieve a deleted email? Is it permenantly stored in the .mbx file?
 

A:Email tracking

Eudora and early Outlook mail clients use mbx, what email program do you have exactly?

In general, the email may still be there unless the database was compacted, but will take specific software to try and recover it. This will depend on what program you use for email.

Hi,

I have 2 tracking cookies (cyberlolita.com and teen-top.com) that I have deleted with Ad-Aware SE a few times and they return immediately. I also have Spyblaster enabled. Is there anyway I can delete them permanently?

Is there a program out there (free) that will let you keep track of cookies, and maybe letting you know a little bit about them? Like where they came from, also a program to let you track all the hits that you get while on line from other computers?
 

A:cookie tracking?

I know that Adaware will allow you to keep track of cookies and if you right click on the cookie shown it will give you a description on it. Also, if you go to the Adaware web site after you have run it there is more information there concerning what you have found in the course of your scan. I'm not sure about the second part of your question.

A:tracking cookies

A couple things come to mind, Curly18801. Ad-aware has a Personal SE 1.05 out, and its on it's (?) definition file update, I just downloaded SE1R14 22.10.2004. Use it, I'd say.2. Sometimes with multiple users, running Ad-aware and Spybot both need to be done logged on as each of the users to do the trick. (kinda like cleaning more than 1 PC, and a hassle, but neccessary) The culprit may not be operating out of a "global setting" that effects the entire machine, but from an individual user's temp file or something like that. The effect is the same if it loads the cookie at each re-boot, though.Also, go in Safe Mode, use Start-->Run--> type in %temp% and delete everything in all user's temp Folder. Folders, too. They will be set up again at reboot and files will fill them back in as time goes by. (Checking on HJT logs can lead you to the devil's doorstep so to speak & you should do it in Firefox, not IE for best protection). And go to Internet Settings and clean disc... all temporary internet files offline content & cookies. (all disks if you have more than one)(that can be done by typing cleanmgr in the box at "start-->run" and following the prompts in the dialog box)Then try running the latest updated anti-spyware programs.Data-mining tracking cookies are not the worst of the critters... you can operate the machine without any compromise in performance... but it is your privacy. The "negligable risk" category in Personal 1.05 deals with MRU's & "settings" in the Spybot S&D advanced menu deal with them a little more fully.

Every time I run ad-aware SE, it seems that it finds tracking cookies (critical objects), I delete it each time and they keep coming back on each run. Even when I do back to back runs. What gives ? I feel unconfortable knowing I have tracking cookies.

Also spybot never seems to find anything. I also have spywareblaster which is updated.

A:Tracking Cookies.

Evrything given its due, tracking cookies are the least harmful problems you can have. However, you can adjust your browser settings to either block cookies or to ask permission each time to install them; the latter option will allow you to decide which to install depending on your trust of the particular site you are visiting so that Ad-AwareSE has little to do when it runs.
I use Mozilla and regularly review its cookie manager to remove any from untrusted sites.

Lately when i scan with Ad-Aware SE it finds about 16 tracking cookies type "IECache Entry", Category "Data Miner". I can delete them, but after awhile they return. Ever since i've been finding them my computer has been running slower. Are they from/for internet explorer? If not, how do i permanently get rid of them?
 

A:Tracking Cookies

Hello Mao. Deleting tracking cookies should not be a problem, as far as a slow-down. Adaware is removing them , but you are undoubtly picking them back up visiting certain sites.
Some advice, since I installed Spyware Blaster {a JavaCool program} on my PC's , and over a dozen others , I have noticed a marked decrease in items found by AdAware and Spy-bot. If you don't use Spyware Blaster---I suggest you do. Simple ---free and conflicts with no other programs.
If your computer really runs slow , maybe a HijackThis log should be posted, possibly another problem?. Also do a general clean-up {Temp files & Temp internet files} and defrag.
Here is a link for Spyware Blaster >>>>>

Hi,
I'm using Windows 7 Pro - 64 bit.
Lately, sometimes the boot up takes almost 5 min. other times about 2 min.
I have not added any programs for months.
I'm using Norton 360 that does a virus scan at boot up.

Is there a program that i can install that will show me the progress on start up?
Maybe even manually do the start up through the program?

Mike
 

A:tracking boot up

"I'm using Norton 360 that does a virus scan at boot up."

Is that really necessary at every boot time? That alone would account for the long boot time, and as more data is saved, the more files there are to scan, so it just gets worse. I never do a boot-time scan with my Norton product, I download stuff from all over the place and never been infected - the Norton real-time component has stopped all of them dead.

Can you configure your 360 boot-time scan to "skip" certain folders, especially those system folders that are "access denied", of which there are many such files. Norton will still try to scan those so it's wasting time while you are waiting to start using your PC.

Hello Everybody ! I'd like to know what I'm looking at here.According to the following ;Search for additional Internet activity. You should only have one connection, using one port. If a hacker has gained access to your system, an additional port will be in use. Running the command from the previous step will allow you to see what IP address the hacker is using, the hacker's hostname and the port number he is connecting through. It is possible to shut down the port and block the IP address, but for the moment, let's trace down who is gaining access to the computer and track what they are doing.How To Track HackersI'm not sure what I am looking at here, is there more than one connection, since it seems to say that if there is I may have someone hacking me ?

A:Tracking Hackers

I can't help you because you blurred the Foreign Address.

I suggest you do the following: download TCPView from Microsoft Sysinternals http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437
Close all the applications you use to connect to the Internet (your brower, IAM client, ...).
Start TCPView.
Sort on column State and review the connections marked as established.
If you find Established connections you can't explain, report them back here and we'll take it from there.
