Question

My friend calls me this morning have woman issues. Says his GF cheated on him a few months back, but is NOW real jealous and constantly questions where he goes, what he does, who he talks to (Guilty conscience obviously) but now shes getting into his emails etc.

Anyone know of a way to tell if theres a program on your computer, I know they have them, that you download secretly that records key strokes, history, etc.....or a way to stop it . He said she doesnt know his password but knows whos emailing him etc.

Coincidence....a co-worker's GF had a program that logged keystrokes and all, but to make a long story short......Laptop took a dump and he was trying to get all his pics. Another guy here took HD and hooked it up to his PC and got into it using DOS. Guess what he found....a folder that his GF made w/all his emails/pics and all. He called her within a minute here at work.....priceless..

Just make a backup, reformat completely and change all his passwords after the reformat.

Make STRONG password. Not like Stang07 if he has a mustang 07 gt. something totally different. and change the password recovery questions. If they ask like whats your moms name, put something else as the answer, as your color of your car or fav brand of cars.

But what if she has a program that records keystrokes? then she'll be able to find out all of his passwords right ??

I think the point is being missed here, are you doing something to make your girlfriend not trust u??? There seems to be some real problems in the relationship beyond the email thing. If you both trust each other then you should be able to look at each others email with no problems.
