Default Spying software

Hi all

I have a VAIO laptop which needs to go in for some repairs but some of the stories you hear of technicians browsing your machine for whatever they want.

Not that have anything of importance on this machine but it's like someone walking round your house when you are out!!

Is there any software out there which runs discreetly and tracks a users movements on a computer. Some report which lists the directories they have been in etc?

Why not just move your personal stuff onto a flash drive or external drive before you send it in?

I think there is a way but don't you think that it is some kind of tricky?
It looks like a vice versa situation when you want to track what the person has been doing.
anyway check out this article on wikipedia, I'm sure you will find useful information.

I think he is looking more on the side of keylogging with screenshot functionality. I don't recommend them as it could compromise security for yourself in my personal opinion.
