Help Please...Question about wireless internet...

I am hoping I can explain this...forgive me if you all get confused. I have two computers in my home. A desktop and a laptop. My kids use the desktop and I have the laptop. They both run on wireless internet. Is there anyway I can download a program or set up my laptop to have it "spy" on the desktop without the person on the desktop knowing that I am doing it? To see what my kids are doing on the desktop? I guess you can say I am doing it as a precaution. Some of you may think I am crazy but hey I won't deny it! Anyway any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I just am not sure how I would go about doing this. Please help. Thanks.

As far as I know there are programs that will let you do this. However I dont think that you can do it WITHOUT access to the computer. In other words, I think that you need to physically get on it to install something like that.

why don't you just be a responsible parent, and either 1) monitor what their activities are on the internet or 2) use parental lockouts or a program like Net Nanny.

I'd think you could setup a share on the desktop and then use the laptop to review the files on the share. You could at least look at the IE cache files, etc. Personally I'd just sit down at the machine and review it. Look at the history, cache files, document history, etc.
