EMAIL:

READING E-MAILS ON YOUR OWN COMPUTER:

Be sure to check the unemptied trash bin!

AOL:

Search for *.BAG or *.ARL

AOL: Right click an e-mail and select 'forward' to send it to another account. It will stay as unread in the original account

AOL: Copying an account on your computer to read without a password:

Pull up screen name of account you want to check. Without signing on, go to “Mail”, then to “Saved on my PC (Filing Cabinet)”

SumrLady’s tip on how to access AOL password protected Filing Cabinet (this method would work for other ISPs too, just find out the name of the file that stores the filing cabinet on the PC:

1) Create a new AOL screenname to be used later, or use one that you don’t care about. You will eventually replace the filing cabinet of this screenname with the filing cabinet of your WS, so make sure you don’t care if you lose the info in it. Let’s call this dummy account Snooper1.

2) After you have created Snooper1, make sure you have a different screenname showing in the dropdown box of screennames, or AOL will lock the files associated with your dummy account and give you an error message later in the process.

3) Next, open your My Computer icon and navigate to Program Files directory, then the AOL directory, then to the “Organize” directory. You will see a group of files that start with the screennames on the account. They have different extensions, but we will be working with the one that has no extension.

4) Now, delete the one with no extension that matches your dummy account (Snooper1) by right clicking on it and selecting “delete”. If you get an error message not allowing you to delete it, refer to 2) above.

5) Next if your WS’s screenname is Scumbucket (for example), then look for the file named Scumbucket. Not Scumbucket.bak or anything else, just Scumbucket. It’s usually a bigger file than the others too. *Remember, it’s the one with no extension.* This is Scumbucket’s Personal Filing Cabinet file.

6) Right click on Scumbucket, and select “copy” from the drop down box. Go to some other directory (doesn’t matter where-there’s a Cache directory right next to Organize, that’s convenient), right click again, and select “save”.

7) Right click on the Scumbucket file you just made in the other directory, and select “Rename”.

8) Type in the screenname of your dummy account (Snooper1) and hit “enter”. You have just changed the name of the Personal Filing Cabinet file of the WS to your new dummy AOL account name. This file is now Scumbucket’s data, renamed Snooper1.

9) Move the new file you have just created back to the AOL/Organize directory.

10) Open AOL and sign on to your new Dummy account (Snooper1). Open the Filing Cabinet. Guess what??!! It’s your WS’s Filing Cabinet contents!!! Bingo!!! **The Password Protection doesn’t carry over to the new file you created. Clear the contents of the Recycle Bin. None of this will show up in Recent Documents or History. All a keylogger will catch is the typing of the new dummy screenname when you rename the file (they don’t record mouseclicks, which is all the other commands used).**

Within minutes, any AOL email that has been cached or saved on a user’s disk drive is extracted, complete with all embedded pictures. Additionally, a comprehensive report is produced that contains all the emails for a user. $120

HOW TO EXTRACT E-MAIL HEADER:

If the email is sent from anywhere OTHER then AOL, and you are receiving it in AOL, then open the email you want to trace, or have your client open the email, and look for the link Details. This link is usually just below the To:email in the email message. If the email is sent from an AOL user to another AOL user then our Reverse AOL Screenname search can get you the sender's information.

Eudora for the Mac:

1. Open the email and click the button on the upper left hand corner of the message. This shows the extended headers.

2. Select the whole message including headers and paste. Eudora for the PC - there are 2 slightly different methods depending on whether the mail contains HTML or not. In any case, to prepare for HTML email, you should turn off the use of Microsoft's HTML viewer.

To do so, click Tools, then Options, then Viewing Mail. Uncheck the box labeled "Use Microsoft's viewer." How to know if it's HTML mail: once you have opened the email, look near the bottom of the headers (see below for revealing headers) for a line like the following: Content-Type: text/html ... you can frequently spot HTML email because it has font effects, pictures, etc but this is not always true so you have to take a quick look at the headers.

Eudora for the PC - non-HTML mail:

1. Open the email by double clicking on the subject line. Click the button to reveal the headers.

2. Place your cursor anywhere in the body of the email and select the entire message (Edit/Select All or Ctrl-A)

3. Copy the entire email (right click and click copy OR Ctrl/C OR Edit/Copy)

4. Paste (right click/paste or Ctrl/V).

Eudora for the PC - HTML mail:

1. Open the email and click the button to reveal the headers.

2. Highlight the headers only. Copy and paste the headers. 3. Hit enter twice after the pasted headers to force a blank line after the headers. 4.Back in Eudora window, place your cursor anywhere in the body of the message and right click and click "view source". A new window will open.

5. In the new window, select all (as above) and copy the contents of the new window.

6. Paste

How to find e-mail headers.

- http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=21289

ALERT [hurtinginseattle]

Gmail now shows the last 5 IP addresses and times used to log into the account - at the bottom of the Gmail "in box" there is a line that *always* displays "Last account activity: 20 minutes ago at this IP (xx.xx.xx.xx)." Next to that line there is a link for "details". Details show the last 5 IP addresses as well as the IP addresses of any concurrent sessions. So, you can't even log in while your WS is online w/o the chance of discovery.

Spoofing your IP address (which is difficult because Gmail is smart) and using someone else's computer (at an online cafe) will not identify you, specifically, but should your WS happen to glance at the bottom of the page it will be VERY apparent that someone else has accessed the Gmail account.

Setting up Mail Fetcher:

1. Click Settings from the top of any email page.

2. Click Accounts.

3. In the Get mail from other accounts section, click Add another mail account.

4. Enter the full email address of the account you'd like to access, then click Next Step.

5. Google will populate the Username and POP Server fields when possible, based on your email address. Enter your Password.

6. Decide whether to:

Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server

If you'd like to keep a copy of each message Gmail retrieves in your other mail accounts, select the Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server checkbox. This way, you can access mail in your other accounts, and in Gmail.

NOTE: some email services may still delete your messages when Gmail fetches them. If this option is checked, Gmail will instruct the other domain to leave the messages in place, though the final behavior is up to the other domain.

If you'd rather delete copies of messages that Gmail retrieves, leave this option unchecked. Gmail will delete the messages from the other account as those messages are retrieved, meaning you'll only be able to read them in Gmail.

Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail.

If the email account being retrieved from supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, you can select this option to have all information sent through a secured connection.

If you select this option, and your email provider doesn't support it, Gmail will let you know that your configuration failed. Clicking Show error details will likely reveal a Protocol error in this case. You'll need to uncheck this selection before continuing.

Label incoming messages

If you'd like to automatically label all messages that are retrieved from your non-Google account, select this option. You can choose to use the predefined label (your email address), or you can select an existing label or create a new one from the drop-down list.

Archive incoming messages

Mail from this account can be archived directly, without showing up in your inbox. Learn more about archiving.

7. Click Add Account.

8. Once your account has been added successfully, you'll have the option of setting it as a custom From address. This allows you to compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account. Click Yes to set up a custom From address. Don’t do this - it will send an e-mail to the account to verify.

FORWARDING OLD EMAIL FROM GMAIL TO ANOTHER EMAIL ACCOUNT:

If you forward all "old" messages, Gmail will show "forwarded" as part of an email conversation.

To get around that:

1) Expand all of the forwarded conversation and delete just the last message.

2) Then delete the forwarded email from the sent folder.

3) Then delete both the sent and the forwarded part from the trash. [hurtinginseattle]

HOW TO EXTRACT E-MAIL HEADER:

1. Log into your Gmail Account

2. open the Email whose headers you want to view

3. Click on the more options link in the message next to the date of the email. If the link says hide options then do not worry u have already clicked on the more options link.

4. Now click the link called show original.

5. This will bring up a new window with headers and the body of the message.

Checking if E-Mail Address is Active

http://my-addr.com/email/

Go to this address and enter the e-mail address you want to check. It will ping the address to see if it exists, but the owner will never know you did it! You can see if an account is still active without sending a message.[lostlove7278]

HOTMAIL HACKER: http://www.agrreviews.com/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=61

http://email.about.com/od/hotmailtips/tp/most_popular.htm (Great site with lots of Hotmail tips)

HOW TO EXTRACT E-MAIL HEADER:

Log into Hotmail.

Click on "Options" tab on the top navigation bar.

Click on the "Mail" link on the navigation bar on the left.

Click on the "Mail Display Settings" link.

Change the "Message Headers" option to "Full".

Click the "OK" button.

To see the full, untangled headers in Hotmail:

1. First, configure your options: Click on "Options." In the "Additional Options" column, click on "Mail Display Options" and find the item "Message Headers." Choose "Advanced" and click the "OK" button.

2. Then, to report spam: When viewing a message, use the "View E-mail Message Source" to display the message in raw mode before copying.

[Note: You MUST have administrator privileges on the computer you want to recover the emails from. Also these instructions are written for Windows 7. If you have a different version of Windows, say XP or Vista, some of these steps may be different.]

1. Begin by clicking on the start menu and select "Control Panel". Scroll down and look for "Folder Options". Click on it and then on the "Views" tab after it opens. Under the first heading there "Files and Folders" scroll down and look for "Hidden files and folders". Click the radio button that says "Show hidden files, folders, or drives". Scroll down further and make sure the "Hide extensions for known file types" & Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" boxes are UNCHECKED. Click on "Apply" and then "OK" to close the dialog box.

2. Click on the start menu and select "Computer" from the menu on the right.

3. When the window opens double click on "Local Disk (C:)" [Note: your systems main drive may be different. If so, click on the default (Main) drive for that system, or the drive where your operating system (windows) files are].

4. When the next window opens scroll down and look for a folder named "Users". Double click on that folder to open it.

5. When that window opens, look for the main users name folder. (e.g., this is whatever the user named the account they're using. Lets say the persons name using the computer is "Fred". Look for a folder named "Fred". If you can't find a folder that looks familiar, look for one with a nick name you might recognize. Keep trying until you see a folder inside named "AppData". [Note: this is why you did step 1, so you can see this folder. If you can't, go back to step one and follow the instructions.])

6. Once you've found the correct "User" folder, double click on the "AppData" folder to open it.

7. When the window opens, double click on a folder named "Local".

8. When the next window opens, scroll down and look for a folder named "Microsoft".

9. Double click on "Microsoft" to open it then scroll down again and look for one of these folders: "Messenger", "Windows Live" or Windows Live Mail". Open up each folder until you find the one that has a folder named "Hotmail". [Note: the folder name may also have some text next to it like "(me6e0" or similar].

10. Once you find the Hotmail folder, double click on it to open. You should see a list of folders there like "Inbox", "Drafts", "Sent" etc... Double click any of these folders and look for files starting with numbers and letters and ending with a "eml" extension. These are the email files you're looking for. You should be able to double click on the files one by one and read the contents. [VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Most WS's are tricky devils. They may transfer and store all of their A emails to a nondescript (harmless) folder that can be named anything. My WW named hers "Gardening" LOL. If you don't find what you want in one of the default folders mentioned above, look for one of these nondescript ones. Keep trying until you find the email files you're looking for.

Additional tips and tricks. While you can double click on a single email file to view it, if the folder has many files this can become tedious extremely quick. WW had over 10,000 email files not to mention tons of graphics and videos in another folder I'll explain more about below. If this is the case in your situation, I've come up with some options to make viewing them easier. [Note: if you're going to use these options, I suggest you DO NOT do it on the computer you're investigating. That is unless you don't care if anyone knows you're doing it. Most times this is not the case. The instructions below are written for saving the files to a memory disk, CD, or DVD drive and then viewing them at you leisure on a system where you have privacy.]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Options for reading multiple archived emails on a separate system.

____________________

OK, so you've fond the emails you were looking for and you're tired of reading them by clicking on the files one by one. What's a person to do? Below are options to save the emails files to memory stick, CD or DVD.

1. Insert your memory stick into an open USB port on the computer where the files are located. [Note: Make sure your media has enough free space for storing the files. I recommend at least 700mb. of free space. Also, if your saving the files to a CD or DVD, insert a blank disk into the drive on the computer where the files are located.]

2. Navigate to the folder where the files you want to save are located. Once there, press "Ctrl" + "A" on your keyboard. [Note: you can also highlight all the files in the folder and then right click and select "Select All".]

3. Drag & Drop the files to your memory stick in "Computer". A pop-up note will appear that says Copy to "your memory stick" location. [Note: I suggest you make new folders on your MS and name them whatever you want. Also, if using the CD or DVD method, you will have to use some type of burning software to copy the files to your media disks.]

4. Continue copying all files you want to save to your memory stick. e.g., double click each folder where the files are and repeat step 3.

5. Eject your memory stick or CD/DVD disk. Insert it into the computer where you want to view the files.

6. Navigate to your memory stick in "Computer" or to your CD/DVD where the copied files are located.

7. Click on a file folder where you saved the files. Drag and drop them to your desktop or any other folder you desire. Just make sure to remember where it is for later. Continue this step for all folders you want to copy to your computer from the media location where they're saved.

8. Now here comes the tricky part. I have only done this using Outlook Express mail client for Windows. It may also work for other mail clients like Thunderbird, Windows Mail, Outlook etc... You'll have to experiment to see if it works with those. If not, I suggest you Google "How to import eml files into (your email clients name)". Open Outlook Express and begin to make new folders with the exact name of the ones saved on your media.

9. Once you have made all the new folders, click on one and leave it open. Navigate to your media where you saved the files and open a folder. Press "Ctrl" + "A" on your keyboard. [Note: you can also highlight all the files in the folder and then right click and select "Select All".]

10. Click on the folder with the same name in Outlook Express. Drag & Drop the files from your media to the blank window on the right of OE. [Note: depending on how many files are in the media folder, it can take a while for them to show up in OE. Please wait for the process to completely finish BEFORE trying to read any emails! Not doing so could very well cause your system to crash!]

11. Continue the steps in number 10 until you've copied all the files to Outlook Express. Once done, you can now read each email like you normally would.

COPYING WS's ENTIRE WEBMAIL ACCOUNT [aesir]

1) Create a new profile/identity in outlook express.

2) change settings on webmail to enable IMAP (and POP) make sure that you set it to keep the webmails copy when accessed via POP.

3) configure this identity to connect to the webmail account via IMAP

4) Log in using this new identity.

5) Once the download is complete, change the outlook settings to use POP when connecting, this will prevent messages deleted on the webmail from being deleted on Outlook as well. You can create a new profile on outlook if you want to repeat this process later.

6) Future attempts to connect with this profile will result in downloading new messages, but the POP setting may download some of the same old messages again.

8) Change the profile/identity on Outlook back to your normal email. If it is opened it will show your normal email unless someone digs enough to figure out the alternate identity.

- If I described everything, and you followed it all, and everything worked correctly, you know have a backup of the entire contents of the WS's webmail account. If you want to, you can even change the password Outlook tries to use to something else so that it can not connect anymore under this profile/identity for extra security.

- This method works for certain using Outlook express, and Outlook has even more functionality, so it should work there as well.

ETA: Thinking about this some more, it should work for just about any email client.

http://desktop.google.com/ *Download. It will pull up some old emails from yahoo & hotmail. When you are done reading, uninstall the program. [SCORNED]

Finding new multiple accounts:

Cookies will show a NEW user name account in the cookie for Yahoo, but not for signing into an *existing* account. Guess the password [kmurph]

Find old photos:

On the old version of yahoo mail, every picture is saved that is sent or received, most people don't even know that they are there. You have to get out of beta mail though to see the "pictures" link at the bottom left. [hollywood_mjl]

HOW TO EXTRACT E-MAIL HEADER:

Log into your Yahoo! Mail account.

Click the "Options" link on the navigation bar.

Click the "General Preferences" link.

Go to the paragraph titled Messages and Locate the Show Headers heading and

select "All." Click the "Save" button to put your new settings into effect.

Once this setting is saved, go back and open your email and you should view the headers.

Yahoo Mail:

Follow these steps: First you must turn on "Full Headers".

From your Yahoo! mail account, click on "Mail Preference".

Scroll down the page to "Message Headers" and click on the "all" radio button.

Save your preferences at the bottom of the page.

Next, view the message you want to report.

If the message is in plain text, copying from this page and pasting it will work.

If the message to be reported is HTML, a two stepped process must be used:

1.View the message and copy the complete headers. Paste these then add a blank line.

2. Go back to the Yahoo! window and select to "Forward" the message as "inline text" (drop down menu).

Scroll down the message to the start of the message body. (The first line of the HTML body will usually begin <HTML).

Copy the body of the message and paste. Make sure a blank line remains between the header and body.

FINDING DATE ACCOUNT WAS OPENED:

Sign into mail, then up at the top of the page it says Yahoo mail, right next to that it says hi, <whateveryournameis>, with a down arrow. Click on the down arrow, click on profile, a new window will open with profile info. On the left hand side, click the second icon from the top (profile). Once there, on the upper right hand side it says member since such and such a date, with such and such a year.

IF you cannot sign in, I believe you could still get to a public profile, and it will at least give a year when it was set up. (sarvi)

SEARCHING YOUR COMPUTER:

http://www.cheaterbuster.com/

This site gives hints on how to check out your partner's computer without installing any software. Go down the page to the heading "Ways to see what your partner is doing online", it has detailed instructions with pictures. [The site is no longer there, so use the wayback machine website to access it. www.internetarchive.org or www.archive.org]

FINDING PICTURES AND/OR VIDEOS [PanicAttack53]

1. Insert a memory stick into an open USB port on the computer where the files are located. [Note: Make sure your media has enough free space for storing the files. I recommend at least 700mb. of free space. Also, if your saving the files to a CD or DVD, insert a blank disk into the drive on the computer where the files are located.]

2. Navigate to the folder where the files you want to save are located. Once there, press "Ctrl" + "A" on your keyboard. [Note: you can also highlight all the files in the folder and then right click and select "Select All".]

3. Drag & Drop the files to your memory stick in "Computer". A pop-up note will appear that says Copy to "your memory stick" location. [Note: I suggest you make new folders on your MS and name them whatever you want. Also, if using the CD or DVD method, you will have to use some type of burning software to copy the files to your media disks.]

4. Continue copying all files you want to save to your memory stick. e.g., double click each folder where the files are and repeat step 3.

5. Eject your memory stick or CD/DVD disk. Insert it into the computer where you want to view the files.

6. Navigate to your memory stick in "Computer" or to your CD/DVD where the copied files are located.

7. Click on a file folder where you saved the files. Drag and drop them to your desktop or any other folder you desire. Just make sure to remember where it is for later. Continue this step for all folders you want to copy to your computer from the media location where they're saved.

8. Now here comes the tricky part. I have only done this using Outlook Express mail client for Windows. It may also work for other mail clients like Thunderbird, Windows Mail, Outlook etc... You'll have to experiment to see if it works with those. If not, I suggest you Google "How to import eml files into (your email clients name)". Open Outlook Express and begin to make new folders with the exact name of the ones saved on your media.

9. Once you have made all the new folders, click on one and leave it open. Navigate to your media where you saved the files and open a folder. Press "Ctrl" + "A" on your keyboard. [Note: you can also highlight all the files in the folder and then right click and select "Select All".]

10. Click on the folder with the same name in Outlook Express. Drag & Drop the files from your media to the blank window on the right of OE. [Note: depending on how many files are in the media folder, it can take a while for them to show up in OE. Please wait for the process to completely finish BEFORE trying to read any emails! Not doing so could very well cause your system to crash!]

11. Continue the steps in number 10 until you've copied all the files to Outlook Express. Once done, you can now read each email like you normally would.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. Look for a folder named "temp". Double click the folder to open it. Scroll down to see if you can find any pics, vids, or whatever.

Windows Shellbag Viewer [Devutor]

The Windows registry keeps track of the display size of a folder window across different sessions. This information is stored in the registry in keys known as ShellBags, and is not cleaned up when the associated folders are deleted.

In a nutshell, each time that you open a folder in Explorer, Windows automatically saves the settings of the folder along with the current date and time. This information could be used to locate hidden files like porn, track when the computer was used, etc...

The data is stored as binary blobs under the following registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags

Unfortunately, the data is stored in binary format and is not human readable but can be easily viewed using a special program.

SEARCHING WEB HISTORY ON YOUR COMPUTER

GMAIL SEARCH WEB HISTORY ACCESS

If you have access to a Gmail account, you can check the search history even if you don't have the Google Toolbar installed.

Log on to the account, go to igoogle.com, click on My Account (in the upper right corner). In the right column is the Google search history. If it's not enabled, you can enable it, there is no notification sent to the account. [Holly-Isis]

WEB HISTORY IN ROUTER/FIREWALL:

- DON'T change any settings if you don't know what you are doing.

- To look up the IP addresses you find in the log, go to: centralops.net [Scorned]

Linksys:

Default IP address (what you type in the address bar of your browser), is: 192.168.1.1

Next screen has blanks for you to put your username and password. The defaults are:

username: default

password: admin [6M$Man]

Click "ok"

Now you're on the Linksys website.

Click on "Adminstration" at the top, then "log" (it's very shaded--kind of hard to see)

On my computer, it had Log: Yes or No. No was checked, so I changed it to "yes". Click "Save Settings" (at the bottom). It takes 5 seconds for the page to reload.

Then click "view log". [mom of 2]

If the password was changed, see: http://www.tech-faq.com/forgot-linksys-router-password.shtml to do a reset. [colin_wilson]

NETGEAR:

Log into your wireless router by opening your web browser and going to http://192.168.0.1. The web page will prompt you for a username and password. To begin with, this is set to the default of:

Username: admin

Password: password

look at this webpage look for the "logs" in your router......http://www.uth.tmc.edu/itsecurity/wireless/wirelessSecuritySteps.html

I *think* that the default password is the same for all netgear routers.

You can also block specific webpages in the settings for your router. [Scorned]

Open up Norton by double clicking on the ICON or START, PROGRAMS, NORTON.

Click on the firewall tab.

Click on "Reports and Statistics"

Click on "View Activity Log"

Then click on the "Network Connections" tab [k9lover1]

If you are having trouble connecting to your router try this:

Click ‘Start’ then ‘run’ and type “CMD” or “Command”

at the prompt type “IPCONFIG /all”

Take the IP address that is your default gateway and paste it into your browser.

Sometimes this works as well.

Incoming are connections that are initiated from outside your home trying to connect to the inside.

Outgoing are connections from your home PC heading out to servers.

Turning on logging will not do any harm. The logs will simply be over written when they grow too large.

You should not see allot of incoming connections. [colin_wilson]

FIREWALL LOGS:

On mine, there's an icon for the firewall in the system tray (the system tray is on the task bar on the right).

I move the mouse icon over the icons in the system tray until i see "firewall" appear. then i right click, it brings up some options of some things i can do with the firewall.

It's things like disable firewall, change configuration settings, etc. one item is called "view logs". I click that one.

It brings up a listing of all sorts of logs that the firewall keeps. one of the logs is web history.

If your firewall is like mine, it will have a certain size limit to it. i had to set mine to the maximum size limit to get good use from it. [Strider75]

To search for your firewall logs just go to ‘start’ on your pc ...search "all files and folders" and type in "logs" .....

any and all logs will be found. [Scorned]

IE Saved Passwords Viewer (Freeware):

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/internet_explorer_password.html

******************************************

MOZILLA FIREFOX BROWSER:

Firefox supports the creation of addional user profiles that could be used to hide internet activity. Many people do not know about this so it could be easily overlooked during a search. [Devutor]

Starting the Profile Manager

1.Exit Firefox (won't work unless you exit all Firefox windows).

2.Click START

3.Click RUN.

3.Type the following without the quotes: "firefox.exe -ProfileManager"

5.Click OK.

Additional information is available at:

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+profiles

- History: Click on 'Go,' in the upper left corner, then look for history and history manager.

- Tools menu and under that you will find *cookies* and *stored passwords*.

- Tools > Options > Privacy > Categories window:

- History - it may say "Remember visited pages for 0 days" - change to however many days you want. - Saved Form Information - Check the box that says "Save information I enter..." - Saved Passwords - check the box that says "Remember Passwords" - Download Manager History - May say Remove files from the Download Manager "When Firefox exits" - change to "Manually" - Cookies - may say Keep Cookies "until I close Firefox" - change to "Until they Expire" ***

To completely clear your Cache, Cookies and/or History in Mozilla FireFox [Silencio]:

1. Go to Tools > Options.

2. Click Privacy in the menu on the left side of the Options window.

3. Click the Clear button located to the right of each option (History, Cookies, Cache).

4. Click OK to close the Options window

* Alternatively, you can clear all information stored while browsing by clicking 'Clear All'.

Firefox "history" info: [angryone]

Even if cookies/history/cache was cleared, you can still see where someone has been by clicking on 'Tools' and then 'Javascript Console'. It only works if the browser has been left open. If someone clears the cookies/history/cache and then closes the browser, it's gone.

CLEARING ADDRESS BAR AUTO COMPLETE:

Click on “Tools”, “Options”, “Privacy”, “Saved Forms”, then uncheck “Save Info I enter in forms and the Search bar”.

TO VIEW CACHED FILES:

Type 'about:cache' in the URL address bar to get a detailed listing of every cached file, and when you click on any entry you get a link to the content.

*If you are connected to the internet, and you click this link, it will just download the current page.

*If you first do File -> Work Offline, Firefox will show you the cached copy. [Silencio]

Yahoo/Hotmail/etc message windows have a "Private" feature that is supposed to prevent caching.

Try looking at one of these entries while offline, and you get a message saying you must be online to view this content; of course if you try that, you just get the login page. Security hole in Firefox: whenever you get that message, click OK. With Work Offline enabled, do View -> Page Source. You'll get a new window with lots of html gibberish. Keep scrolling through until you find text that looks like e-mail. The Firefox cache contains 90% useless chaff...you need to find the links that actually represent sent or received e-mails, and these are not organized in any way.

A better (but slightly more involved) way to view a cached file is to:

highlight *all* of the code/gibberish text from the 'view source' window, then copy and paste it to a notepad (.txt) file. Save this to the desktop as some name (doesn't matter what), then close notepad and rename the file so that xxx.txt becomes xxx.html or xxx.jpg or xxx.gif . Click yes to any nag/confirmation boxes. Then doubleclick the xxx.html file you just made, and it should open in your web browser and look like a normal web page. [Silencio]

RESTORE LAST SESSION IN FIREFOX 2 [Adamj]

Firefox allows you to restore your last session if the browser crashes - Well, this allows you to restore the last session even if the browser doesn't crash!

The file is called: sessionstore.js and it is found in C:\documents and settings\<username>\application data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<randomtext>.default\ on an XP machine.

- Right click and EDIT this file (it is in plain text) - go to the very end of the file and find this string session:{state:"running"}})

- Change "stopped" to "running" prior to launching browser. I tested with FF 2.?

- Pretty handy trick eh? It even logs back into gmail with no password needed. (if not logged out) I haven't verified if it works for other browser based logins (facebook, live journal, myspace, etc), but am pretty sure that it will work similarly in those cases.

- I am going to write a script that will modify this file automatically based on current status. I'll be sure to post it when I'm done with it.

http://www.survivinginfidelity.com/forums.asp?tid=248209

Thank you AdamJ!

- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/textarea-cache/

It's a Firefox addon that records whatever is input into a text box. It recorded a 'compose new email' in Gmail- including the pre-established signature. It's recording what I'm typing right now. So, if you don't have a keylogger, this is a possible tool for seeing what emails/messages are sent out.

It shows up in Firefox in the lower right corner as a tiny clipboard with a red plus sign. Click on it and there's a dropdown menu of the most recent text entries. And if it's found, you can always gaslight and claim it must have come w/ Firefox. [Holly-Isis]

OPERA:

History:

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+H or go to Tools > History. Has times and dates.

- The "Quick find" feature makes searches highly efficient.

- Click on any of the pages in the history to go to them. You can change how many pages (if any) you want Opera to remember, by going to Tools > Preferences > Advanced > History.

- If you want to delete addresses from the History list, just select them and press Delete.

Account Names/PWs:

Tools>Advanced>Wand Passwords> Click on each listed account folder for sign-in name.

If listed, go to the site and click on the wand in the toolbar, you will be signed in to the account.

Cache

Tools>Advanced>Cache Cookies

Tools>Advanced>Cookies Mail

This panel is hidden by default and will appear only after you have created at least one e-mail or news account.

Contacts

This panel is hidden by default and will appear only after you have created at least one e-mail, news, or chat account. Type in the name of the contact in the "Quick find" field, and Opera will start matching your search entry as you type. Click on the name of a contact to to view all your e-mail correspondence with that contact. Right-click on the contact and select "Properties" to view or change details, such as name, e-mail address, chat nickname, home page, notes or even an image of that contact.

KEYLOGGER ON YOUR PC?

PRECAUTIONS:

- Don't click on links within an email - type out the website address.

- Never click on an emailed link for an e-card from someone you don't know or ask if your friend sent it before clicking.

- Don't give anyone your user id/password or personal info via email.

-Two free software utilities that are good for detecting key logger software are Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware.

-Also, go to your start menu. Right click on 'search.' Enter the word "keylogger" in and see if anything comes up.[Janelle]

- When you do a search, make sure you check the option to search in hidden files and folders. [triedmybest]

-The best way, I have found and I'm sure it's not fool proof is to go into Regedit and under the find function, put in keylogger and it will search regedit and if there's anything in there, it will show up. I don't know if this will work if the actual program was renamed by the person installing it. [curiousgeorge]

- Check the task list by press ctrl+alt+del in windows. Examine all the tasks running, if you unsure of a task look it up on a search engine. [Janelle]

- Use the system configuration utility to determine which task are loaded at start-up (type "msconfig" in the run box to start).[Janelle]

- Run your antivirus checker, it's possible this will pick up the Keylogger on your system.[Janelle]

- Scan your hard disk for the most recent files stored. Look at the contents of any files continually updating (these might be logs).[Janelle]

- Download a specific keylogger detector program, and see if it detects anything.[Janelle]

- Run Spybot S&D, this program checks for some known keyloggers. [Janelle]

- Type ctrl+alt+shift+(try every letter on the keyboard). If Specter is on there that should bring up the login dialogue. [ladyvorkosigan]

- Try this: “Start” “Run” type in “regedit” “OK “ Then go to Edit/ find/ keylog If there is one installed , it should show up [dupedtwice]

USING ‘NOTEPAD TO OPEN FILES:

http://www.survivinginfidelity.com/forums.asp?tid=118238

Without Leaving a Trace in recently viewed documents: If you right-click on a file and use the 'Open With' or 'Send To' options to view that file with Notepad, then I find that it doesn't leave a link to that file in the 'Documents' list.

If you run notepad from the DOS prompt (also called the 'command line' or 'cmd) like so:

notepad index.dat It will not leave a link to 'index.dat' in Start -> Documents.

some file viewing and editing programs have an MRU list (Most Recently Used) in their 'File' menu option. You can see the last few files opened with that program in this way. Notepad doesn't maintain an MRU list of recently opened files.

BUT...

If you run Notepad from the Start menu, and while in Notepad choose (for example):

File -> Open -> 'index.dat'

It _will_ leave a link to 'index.dat' in the Start -> Documents menu. [Irregardless 8/06]

DAT VIEWERS:

Not many - logKext is one: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/16155 FREE

Easiest way to spot logKext:

From the Applications folder, go to Utilities, Terminal. Open the Terminal, type "sudo mdfind logkext" and when it asks for the password, give it your account password (if you're an administrator on the machine - otherwise, sudo won't work.)

Also try "sudo mdfind spector" to see if the Mac version of Spector's been installed. [setecastronomy]

Using Keychain to look for account info [osxgirl]:

Account login and (optionally) password information are stored in an area called the Keychain. This includes accounts on sites, messaging accounts such as AOL, e-mail (hotmail, gmail, etc.), and most sites reached through the browser that require some sort of login.

To see this information, you must be able to log in as the person for whom you wish to view the information, i.e., to see your own, log in with your own account.

Viewing accounts in keychain:

1. Bring up a Finder window, and go to /Applications/Utilities (double-click on Applications, then double-click on Utilities).

2. Start the Keychain Access application (double-click on Keychain Access).

3. In the window that comes up, look for the column "Category" on the left-hand side.

4. Under "Category", there should be a line that says "Passwords". Click on that to select it.

5. In the main window, a list of accounts will come up. Choose the one you wish to look at and double-click to select it.

6. The window that pops up will show you the login name, the service, and possibly other information about the account.

7. To see the password (if it is available), click to select the "show password" box. A new window will pop up asking for the login keychain password. Most of the time, this will be the user's login password. Enter the password and click "Allow" (or "Always Allow", and then you will be able to see all the passwords without entering the user's password again during this session) as long as the keychain login password has not been changed from the user's account login password.

8. If you get error messages that the password you are entering is wrong, the user has changed his keychain password, and you will be unable to see the account passwords (unless you also know the keychain password).

9. If the login password is accepted, but there is nothing in the account password box, then either the user has not saved the account password on the machine, or there is no password.

10. You may also want to look at the area "all items" under the "category" column to see if there are any accounts or other useful information that did not appear in the "passwords" section.

EVERYTHING ABOUT PHONES:

TIPS

- If leaving SWS home alone, forward house calls to your cell. If SOP thinks s/he can call your house safely because you're out of town, then you might just get his/her number without him/her suspecting a thing.[SoDown]

PHONE DIRECTORIES

-http://www.escapeartist.com/global/telephone.htm

All Nations Expatriates & Travelers Telephone Search Engine. Gives the calling code instructions from each of the world's nations to any other nation. Allows you to search every on-line telephone directory in the world. (Over 700 directories).

FIND PHONE NUMBER'S OWNER:

-Google the number with area code.

-Search using “PHONE NUMBER SEARCHES” section below.

-Call in the middle of the night or call the backdoor number and listen to the outgoing message, even if you don't have a password to listen to messages, you can find out the name on an unknown number if they recorded it and their sex, as well as what cell provider it is.

-How Sparkysable found out!!: I called the phone number and said "Hi! Who is this?" She said "This is Jennifer, who is this?" Bingo.

- SPOOF IT!

Use a caller ID spoofing service like camophone. Spoof the cell number you are questioning to a phone and see if a name comes up on the caller ID. Sometimes it will just come up "wireless caller" or "out of area" but about 30% of the time, it will come up with a name. (LynW)

- Ask an SI member to run the number through Spooftel (http://www.survivinginfidelity.com/forums.asp?tid=140589).

If you have a number you want checked out, it’s worth a shot. One of three things will happen: [k9lover1]

1. A name will show up

2. Only a state will show, ie. Mississippi call, etc.

3. ‘Unknown’ will appear.

- In most major supermarkets now, you can get a bonus card for discounts....right? These cards use your phone number to access in their system. And if you don't have your card with you, you can punch in your phone number in the little machine at check-out and it will log in your card number and then your name is printed on your receipt. I put in a number I thought was OW's home number, hoping she had an account there.....and sure enough, the receipt came out with her name on it. So even though her number is unlisted..I got the confirmation that it is hers. [numb and scared]

- SPRINT and T-MOBILE don't require a PW if it was never set up when you check VM from your cell or the spoofed cell number.

-SPRINT - Finding Owner's Name- http://www.sprintpcs.com/

At the bottom of the page in red click on "rebate status."

1st go to searchbug.com and put the number into "Land or Cell phone" gives the area where the cell phone was purchased. Then go to USPS.gov (I think thats it, just do a search for zipcodes) and get all zips for that town or area. Plug them in one after the other. Be sure to get the PO box zips too (It tells you which is which).

If it gives an area like "Terminal Arizona", try calling your local sprint store and find out where the prefix originates. That will help with the zipcodes. It's free! And sprint lets you enter as many zipcodes as you want without bumping you off.

- CINGULAR - Finding Owner's Name

If it is Cingular, or suspect it's a Cingular/AT&T number, here's what you do: (OnlyOne)

1. Go to the Cingular Store

2. Locate the self-pay computer/kiosk 3. Type in mobile number and what you believe to be the billing zip code

4. Presto!! Up comes the name on the account!

5. Press cancel & walk away.

*FREE* PHONE NUMBER SEARCHES:

http://www.tndatabase.com/ tells if the phone # you are looking up is currently assigned [SCORNED]

http://whocalled.us/ The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".

Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want. [SCORNED]

*From JadedMusicWidow:*

I took all of those unlisted/unpublished landline numbers that I've come across on cell bills, call history of cell phone etc, none of which have ever returned any results in regular reverse directories, and:

I typed in under number to call [recipient]:MY HOME PHONE NUMBER,

then they ask for your number to call in order to "bridge" the call your number [caller]: Typed MY CELL NUMBER Here

and last they ask for the number that you want to display on the caller ID of the person you are calling- which in this case is my home number.

VIOLA! *You have the number AND the name of the person registered to that phone displayed on your home id.* I've got 11 of 14 numbers that I finally have names for, all of which I couldn't find before... I tried this with a few cell numbers and found it works with Sprint pcs numbers because Sprint shows the persons name & number when

calling regular landline caller ID. And its only 5 bucks for 100 minutes!

SPOOFTEL EXPLANATION [k9lover1]

The way spooftel works is this:

1. You put in the number of the phone that will originate the call.

2. You put in the number of the phone that is being called.

3. You put in the number that should show on the caller ID of the phone being called. If you have caller ID on the originating phone, that same number will show up there.

Uses for this service are:

1. If you have a number you want checked out, you can put it in the Caller ID box. One of three things will happen, your caller ID will show a name, or it will say the state and call (Tennessee Call) or it will say Unknown.

2. Or, you can set up a phone call between two phones by putting the numbers in 1 and 2 above. You also have the capability of recording the call for an extra $1.00. The recording is sent to you via e-mail and you need Quick Time Player to play it.

3. You can also send text messages.

It can be obtained at www.spooftel.com and is very inexpensive. One call (without recording) is about ten cents. I have a subscription and can assist with running numbers.

PHONE RECORDERS:

If you have DSL, take a small phone cord and go from the back of the DSL box, where its for a regular phone and plug a cord between that and your computer modem plug.

- http://www.click4prepaid.com/ Get the records for every call made.(length of call, time and phone# called)

the only thing you can't get is the number where the call is made FROM. Net2phone gives you the option to print out a real card-use the high quality photo setting on your printer-then take it to Kinko's or some place like that and have it laminated if you don't have access to a laminator. You can also use net2phone to call from your computer with their commcenter software which you can download for free on their website,it's good for investigating phone numbers because(in my experiernces) it shows up on the other persons caller id with random numbers or just "unavailable" whenever Ive used it, but double check to be safe and test it first by calling a friend or your cell using it because with different phone companies and depending on where the call is placed from it may vary from state to state. When you view the call history, it will show a pc icon pointing to a phone icon before each call made from your pc and a phone icon to phone icon for calls made from a phone.(JadedMusicWidow)

Use: You call a back door number and that cell phone doesn't ring, so if you have the password, you can check the voicemail with no proof on that cell phone.

Even if you don't have the password to listen to messages, you can find out the name on an unknown number if they recorded it, their sex & cell provider. SEE THE NEXT POST FOR NUMBERS FOR EACH SERVICE PROVIDER.

www.slydial.com

- Another way to access voicemail, for any provider.

Dial (267-759-3425)

Listen to a short advertisement blurb and enter the cell number.

Listen to another short blurb and get connected.

Press the appropriate key to disable the greeting (depends on service - # for Verizon and * for T-Mobile).

Enter voicemail pass code.

The receiving phone won't ring and the recipient cell phone will only see a missed call from an unavailable (no ID or number) source. [SomewhatWorried 3/2010]

ETA BEWARE: slydial will not let you block your number before you dial it. Occasionally it will RING the number and give YOUR number in the envelope information and you may get a call back - BEWARE.

FIND YOUR BACKDOOR NUMBER YOURSELF

Go to:

http://www.localcallingguide.com/lca_prefix.php

You will see a search box labeled 'NPA/NXX (Area Code/Prefix) Search'

Enter the area code and prefix of the wireless carrier, and it will return a rate center and a corresponding switch.

If you click on the 'switch' hyperlink, then the search query will return all prefixes served by that particular switch, which are the prefixes that the wireless carrier owns.From the list above, it should be easy to figure out which numbering schemes your wireless carrier uses for the actual backdoor number.

Just start dialing the area code, prefix, and -xxxx (where -xxxx is the backdoor number pattern your carrier uses) until you find the recording of the voicemail system. [link supplied by Flyaway]

TEXT MESSAGES:: Alltel on-line WILL show the actual texts (and even pictures)

http://message.alltel.com

And at that screen, they'll ask for the mobile number and password, if you think he's already done this, one can re-type in the # and ask for the password to be sent to the phone # in question. That's why you NEED the phone while doing this. Otherwise, set the password up, and as a confirmation, they'll send it to the phone. There are options to 'block' certain numbers and addresses, and even ALLOW the message to go to the phone, but AUTO forward the message to YOUR phone, or YOUR email, WITHOUT the original phone being notified.. SO, I think it goes 1 week or 2 back in time, and you can see EVERY message then sent, either phone to phone to text site to phone or email to phone! And no, doesn't matter about voicemail. Those will show on Alltel billing as "DATA". [bobsgrl]

Enter target phone #

Enter security code.

If you don't know it - enter in the target phone's # AGAIN (as the security code) -

you will then be asked if you'd like to change the security code.

"UHH, YEAH!" - would be appropriate at that point...

Enter any 4 numbers - (& don't forget them, k?)-

AT & T has a very good online detailed billing showing phone calls to/from, how long almost immediately to a couple of hours later. Shows text number to/from after several days. Doesn't tell what text messages said. I used to get a very large itemized paper bill as well, but AT & T stopped sending that. [BMC0415]

CRACK VOICEMAILS:

- To set spouse's phone to notify you when there is a voicemail.

SET-UP: about 10-15 minutes; Get the phone and hold down the 1 key until it dials voicemail. Go through the menus until you find the option to set a PIN and do that. (It won't ever ask the owner for the PIN, you only need it to check messages from another phone.)

Then go to administrative options (I think) to 'Set notifications'. Put in your cell or home phone number, and what times you will accept calls (I did 12:01 AM to 11:50 PM I think).

Call that phone and leave a random voicemail. Voila!

Within seconds after you hang up, the number you saved to will ring and that there is a new message, & you enter the PIN to hear it. When S gets the message, it doesn't say that someone already listened to it.(brainless twit)

- Dial from your Sprint phone 11+10 digit number so if they are 212-555-1212, dial 11-212-555-1212

Instructions:

When you dial the #, it will ask for the 10 digit phone #. Enter the area code and phone # of the sprint cell phone you want to access and hit #. It will then read back the # you entered, then ask you to enter the passcode and press # (you'll have to know what the code is).

You should now be in the mailbox. It will tell you how many new and saved msgs are on the phone.

Go to searchbug.com and put the number into "Land or Cell phone" & get the area where the cell phone was purchased. Then go to USPS.gov and get all zips for that town or area. Plug them in one after the other. Be sure to get the PO box zips too (It tells you which is which). If it gives an area like "Terminal Arizona", try calling your local sprint store and find out where the prefix originates. That will help with the zipcodes. It's free!

This will take you to another, SEPARATE PAGE from your billing.

There, you can either create a 'text/email' account (it's a separate login), or if one has already been made, then request the password back to the phone.

Remember, either of these options is going to send a text back to the handset in question, so you HAVE to have it there with you.

Once an 'account' has been established, then all incoming and outgoing text, emails, picture messages, etc. can be seen. The ACTUAL MESSAGES, etc. In real time (well, I do assume there is around 2-4 minutes of update time) but pretty dang quick.

-chose 6. security. Unless changed, the code will be the last four numbers of the phone number (ex: 908-555-1234...the code will be 1234).

2. Restrictions. enter code again.

3. incoming calls then chose "contacts" or "block all". I chose "contacts" so the phone can only receive calls from the contact list. Now if that person wants to add a contact, the restriction has to be lifted. Same with changing anything on the phone like adding a ring tone. [sullymeishadomi]

Also: Go to "Get it now" and chose the application called "Leave me alone." It will block all restricted calls.

PRO’S:

- great online viewing of calls

CONS:

- no sim card to see deleted text messages.

Called about an account strictly in my H's name... I was not an authorized user and all that was required for them to deal with me was his name, postal code, and DOB...

they gave me the sign in name for online billing he had set up and the secret question and answer... they reset the password for me to a generic one... and walked me through signing in and picking my own... they also changed the contact email from one in his name to one in my name.

- This wasn't just one lucky chance at getting someone on the phone who is lax about security... I was transferred to several different departments and was given the same treatment...

They offered to mail me paper copies of past bills... and detailed information about calls. [DrowninginSorrow]

BLACKBERRY

EVENT LOG

Blackberry has an event log. It is normally set to log only warnings but you can set it to information as well. Don't set to debug because it will fill up phone memory.

Set on information, it logs all actions. So even though my WH was deleting call records, I was able to view the event log and see the calls he was making when they were started and when the call ended. Also was able to see that text messages were being sent back and forth, but not the actual messages.

So for anyone who does not have access to the online billing, they can still see what calls are made as long as phone isn't password protected.

Instructions:

When on the main screen of Blackberry, hit ALT key then LGLG. The log will come up and you can use the little trackball to scroll down. There is a lot of gibberish but you will eventually see things like Call_Connnected or Call_Ended or stuff like that along with the number. You can also tell if the person called the number or the number called the person. When you are over the particular information like Call_Connected, press the ball button down and it will bring up details like what time the call was placed. This is also great for knowing if they were talking to someone at a particular time when they said they were doing something else.

If you see something like net.rim.sms that means a text message was sent.

While on the log, if you hit the Applications Button it will bring up a menu where you can change the setting from Warning to Information. Also where you can clear the log. It is good to clear the log so it doesn't slow down the processing of the phone.

How to Retrieve Blackberry Messenger History

* Blackberry Messenger History can only be retrieved by contact, so you must know who you were chatting with so that you can view the history with the appropriate contact. The "Save Message History" option must be enabled in the Blackberry Messenger options to be able to retrieve the Blackberry Messenger history.

1. Click on the Blackberry Messenger icon from the home screen of the phone.

2. Look on the contact list screen. Under a contact category, just highlight a contact that you are interested in retrieving messenger history for. History is saved under the contact that you were chatting with.

3. Press the "Menu" key on your phone. From the available options select "View History." A list of chats will appear and you can select the ones that you want to view. For other contacts, just repeat the same steps.

How to Recover My Contacts on My Blackberry

1. Connect your Blackberry to the computer on which you have the BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed. Launch the Desktop Manager software.

2. Select "Backup and Restore," then click on "Restore."

3. Locate the backup file with your contact data. This file will be in the default location unless you have previously changed it. For Windows XP this is C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\ and for Windows Vista it is C:\Users\<username>\Documents 4. Double-click on the file, which will have a (.ipd) file extension.

5. Synchronize your Blackberry device with the Desktop Manager, which will restore your contacts.

- http://bitpim.org/ Works with Verizon's CDMA technology - phonebook and text messages

*rejected1's warning: it is deceptively powerful and allows you to not only sync data, but when in "File View" mode, also allows you to manipulate and work with the phone's basic file structure. You can delete or create new system files, hack a phone's operating system, remove restrictions placed there by Verizon designed to cripple certain services...etc. In short, you'd better know what you're doing...

You'll also need to download the USB drivers for your particular phone model. But once you get them installed on your PC, BitPim will have no trouble communicating with the phone. You'll then be able to view the file directory for the phone in the same way you can with Windows. You'll see folders in a tree, with subfolders and files.

PARABEN & OTHER PROGRAMS:

http://www.paraben-forensics.com/cell_models.html#samsung

http://www.softplatz.com/Soft/Utilities/Backup/Mobile-Sim-Card-Text-SMS-Recovery.html

Download the files to a CD and run the program from that so it's not seen on the computer. You can order universal data cables on the Paraben website, or depending on your model phone, check Circuit City, Comp USA, or google "USB data cable for xxxxx" (your phone model). Should only be about $15.00

Instructions for Paraben $895 demo:

http://www.paraben-forensics.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=377 Scroll down the page and download the demo. Once Paraben is downloaded and ready to go:

Click on the Paraben Device seizure icon on your desktop or wherever you put it, to open the Paraben program.

- Click on File (at the top), then "New".

- Another window will open and you need to pick a name to call your file, like "WS's phone". Then click "Save".

- Then next screen will say "Info about Case" at the top. Ignore, just kept hitting "Next".

- Finally you get to the last screen which says "Success!". - Click "finish".

- Plug fully charged phone into the cable and turn the phone on.

- Go to "tools" (in Paraben), and I clicked on "Data Aquistion".

- Another window will open, click "next".

- Open the drop down menu and pick your phone manufacturer.

Click "next". I did this twice for each phone I tested (both Motorolas). Once using the "logical", and again using the "physical".

- The next screen opens the drop down menu and select your model. Too many to list depending on the phone... For mine (Motorola), the only option was "Auto Detect".

- Click "next".

- Choose your connection type. This is where you tell Paraben where to look for the data cable. I had options for "Comm Port 1", "Comm Port 2", and "Comm Port 3". I had a HARD time with this one. But it finally worked.

- Click "next".

- "Select all". Click "next".

- Next window, click "next".

Then it should start gathering the data - only took my phones about 20 seconds, but I didn't get a lot of info.

- The acquistion will finish, the second window can be closed, and any information obtained will be listed on the screen. [mom of 2]

**************************

BLUETOOTH ADDRESS BOOK

Bluetooth that comes already set up in a car has its own phonebook and keeps track of the last 20 ingoing and outgoing messages. Even if it is deleted on the corresponding phone, the message still shows up, just lighter.

You have to have the phone in the car for it to work (so I do it late at night when my H is asleep). The problem with the phonebook, though, is that you can't see the number with the name. You have to press the "call" button and then the number comes up, but it also rings the number. Can't figure out how to get the number from the phonebook otherwise. [Thinking hurts]

OTHER COMMUNICATION DEVICES:

SKYPE

Do a google search for Skype Log Viewer. Nirsoft offers a free one. This program allows you to read ALL chats (including deleted chats) and stamps the time and user names involved.

You need to log from the offending computer, and/or you need the main.db file to still exist under the Skype username folder.

- On Vista it's under: C:/Users/Username/Appdata/Roaming/Skype/Username

- The program will automatically open the most recently used Skype account's data and chats. And you can search all of the computer's different Skype users from WITHIN the program. I only pointed out where the folder is incase you're encountering problems. Or choose to copy the folders to a flash drive to look at in your own time. [H & V]

PLAYSTATION PSP

If your spouse uses a PSP (hand held Playstation) and connects to the internet with it, take out the memory card. There is a history.dat file on there. Put the card into an SD card slot on your comp and you can either download a .dat reader, or you can right click on the file and choose 'open with' and 'MS Word' to see what you come up with. [Bluest Mood]

X-BOX

Can send e-mail

A really neat program that REALLY does work.

I've worked with law enforcement who use a device called a "Psychological Stress Evaluator" for their investigations and this program is based on the same technology. People who lie cannot control the changes in their voice; it's an autotomic response.

VOICE ACTIVATED RECORDER (VAR) TIPS:

BEST MODELS:

Sony ICD-B300, $38.88 at Wal-Mart.

Battery life at High sensitivity, High quality (most battery-hogging settings): approximately 10 hours (note: things like rain, being close to something that made a constant loud noise, etc.,

Total recording run-time at HS, HQ: 7 hours

The only thing I don't like about it: the clock and date reset every time you take the batteries out. [veritas]

- Olympus VN2100PC Digital Voice Recorder

Sold by: Amazon.com, LLC

It was easy to use, and since I have two teenagers I wasn't toooo worried that it would be found. I knew I could claim it was one of their mp3 players. [I_used_to_smile]

- Olympus VN-4100 PC Digital Voice Recorder

http://www.radioshack.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=2032336&cp=2032060

Had to read the manual but pretty straightforward. Cost about $50 bucks (when I bought it). [Scout]

- RCA - 64 MB DVR, model RP 5030 - easy to use, able to listen to recordings from the recorder or via computer, about 15 hours of recording time, easy to burn "evidence" on CD easily. This model worked better if you listened to the recorder via the computer. This is the one I used in home and car its from Wal-Mart about $50. [buz12]

INSTRUCTIONS:

SUGGESTIONS FOR USE: [momof2]

-I put a VAR in my kitchen in a plant, I knew they would be in my kitchen on a certain night, worked great! [buz12]

-Buy 2 recorders because they use a lot of batteries. You can always keep one with fresh batteries loaded and ready to go, and easily switch out the two.

HIDING IT IN THE CAR:

- I used to put mine under his seat(on the floor) with duct tape on the back so it wouldn't slide around. I think another poster used 2 strips of velcro, one for under the seat and the other for the back of var...the key is volume control/sensitivity, if it's too high the engine and/or radio takes over the voice conversations. [Betrayal]

-If you can, test drive the vehicles with the recorders in place. Then you can play around with radio, heating & air, on and off, talk on your cell phone, etc., and move the recorders around as needed.

-I have one in the pocket behind his seat. I can NOT believe the amount of batteries they go thru. I'm going thru batteries every couple days. I also bought 2 VR so I can switch them out. I find he turns the radio down and puts the window up when he makes calls. That helps. [survivor?]

-Go on a "car improvement" binge and buy seat covers....and a mini size microphone (mic). The best recording I got was with this method. I placed the VAR recorder by velcro under the back part of the passenger seat, then ran the microphone up the sides of the seat cover by the seam & placed the mic on the very top corner of the passenger seat pointing towards the driver seat. [oldtimer97]

-What I would do to listen is put in an earpiece and he thought I was listening to music when in fact I was listening to what he did all day. [k9lover1]

-Use rechargeable bateries, but I know you also have to hide the recharger. [feelinginthedark]

-Don't forget to put duct tape over the lcd light, it will glow at night. [Betrayal]

-My FWH has a diesel truck I put mine under the back seat and I also got a mike with it so I ran it up between the seats pointing forward and put something covering it up a bit I heard most everything. Definitely put tape over the light that is how my FWH found mine after only 3 days. [kipper]

-I used velcro and put it under his seat, but he drives an ancient POS which is NOISY, so it was hard to catch things. It worked better when I put it in the passenger side visor. Obviously, you have to have a story in place in case it's discovered. LOL ... mine was "It looks like an MP3 player. (which it is ... in addition to a VAR) It must be the girls. (our daughters) When was the last time they rode with you?" DON'T FORGET the duct tape over the red light!! [I_used_to_smile]

-I retrieve it immediately. Switch to a blank folder instead of leaving on the one that's just been recorded. Turn the volume AAAALLLLLL the way down. In fact I try to keep the volume off unless I'm in the process of listening back. On my VAR, the volume only controls the playback: the volume of the recording is set and invariable. And then finally I lock it. [Mantis]

-I bought a small one at Best Buy. I hid it in the visor. It only recorded when it heard sound. It had a 16 hour record time. [Wendy1]

-For those of you with babies in a carseat. Hid it in the carseat!!!!! No man is going to go looking for it there! Under the carseat or in the cover is great. [shambles07]

-I bought mine for about 35.00 and I set it for voice activated recording (VAR). It only records when it hears noise. I used it once when I went out of town but I set it to very sensitive recording. It recorded at the littlest noise, which ran down the battery and I only got one day on tape (needed 4 days). Buy lots of batteries and change them out early so you have enough battery life at all times. Hide it where the least amount of background noise will be picked up. Learn how to operate it so you can set it to record at a moments notice. [hardtimesinlife]

Some things I've learned from using the VAR (ChoppingOnions):

1) The length capability of the recorder is nowhere near as important as the battery life. VAR's eat batteries for lunch, so yes, use the Ultimate Lithiums. I get about two days out of those. They're much more expensive than regular batteries, so only use those for RECORDING. Get some spare cheapo/alkaline batteries to use for LISTENING to the recordings.

2) If you want to continuously have a VAR in the car (and still be able to listen to the recordings), get a second VAR so you can swap them out. Put one in the car while you listen to the other.

3. Ear buds are handy for listening to the VAR discreetly. I take the dog for a walk and listen to the recordings.

4. Consider the safest places to put the VAR in the car. You absolutely DO NOT want to get caught doing this. Consider using those velcro stickers for easy placement/removal. Under the seat or in the dash are good places. I put mine in the fusebox on the lower part of the dashboard near the steering wheel. Make sure it's SECURE. You don't want the thing to vibrate a lot when the car is in motion. If you can test it out ahead of time, do so.

5. The quickest, safest procedure for swapping out your VARs: 1) Put in fresh lithium batteries. 2) Depending on your model of VAR, turn the volume all the way down (you don't want it to accidentally start to play a recording in the car while they're driving -- busted!) 3) Hit record, then switch the lock switch to on. The lock switch disables all the buttons. Do this in the house before you get into the car, so you're not fumbling around in there. 4) Place the VAR securely in your hiding spot. 5) Make sure to leave everything else as it was. If you want to turn down the volume on the radio a bit, it helps with picking up voices. Be careful about cars with keyless entry that keep track of seat/steering wheel positions. My wife noticed hers was changed every morning because I was going into the car with my keys. I use hers now.

6) If you have trouble hearing recordings, consider plugging in a lapel microphone to the VAR. Some VARs come with these. You can tape it down securely inside the car, hidden away. I found a great spot inside the steering column (put it in from under the dash, then run the wire to your VAR hiding place. Make sure everything is taped down well. Just make sure they can't see it. When you swap out VAR's just unplug it from the microphone, and plug the new one in.

7) Avoid placing it too close to radio speakers. If you have to though, you can set the balance/fader on the stereo away from that speaker a bit.

8) Someone said this on here: "If you get caught, DENY, DENY, DENY!" Be wary of situations where someone might find the VAR (getting the car detailed or serviced). I had a close call when she had her interior detailed. Good Luck!
