    My family are pretty retarded when it comes to technology, so i set everything up for them - admin on all pcs, keep anti virus up to date etc etc etc

    Now normally i wouldn't bother checking on anything they do, but after just doing a virus scan and removing several tracking cookies and a couple of virus's most of them can be traced back to my sisters account, from dodgy websites. Now i know you can get a few dodgy cookies from pop ups from pretty much anything, and chances are they have been using the oldest version of IE instead of opera/mozilla so there will be popups / spyware galore... but still. Sister is 14...

    to check history or not?

    Just get Firefox, with the Ad-blocker. Then tell her to be careful with what sites she goes to because you've seen that there are viruses. No need to look at what she's going on, unless it's really that important. If it insists, start blocking sites =P

    What you see cannot be unseen or something like that.

    So basically stay blissfully ignorant.

    I definetly wouldn't check. I'd just install Firefox and get it to wipe the history every time it is closed so I'm not even tempted. I'd also make sure she knows about how to use a virus checker and whatnot.
