I've posted here before about the problems my g/f and I have been having with her use of the internet. I went to use the text editor today and under the "recent tab" I cane across a file named "untitled". Knowing it wasnt anything I created I clicked on it. Without giving out to much infromation about myself or my g/f its clear she's using some sort of program to cover her tracks. Anyway here's what part of what the file she created and forgot to delete looked like. Im sure its an email or some sort but I just dont know of any email programs that are capable of changing what she types in something else. Her son knows allot about Macs so Im sure he set her up with a program or told her what to use to covert your messages to look like thiis:

Can someone please tell me what that means and what program or email service would provide that type of encryption? Thanks

What text editor are you using ?
To me , this looks like opening a file that was created with another program than your text editor.
This might as well be a file with cheat-codes for a game.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

I'm no pro!!! But this doesn't look like encrypted email. It looks more like a script.. But like i said i'm no pro!!!
If its your computer, lock it down.. So no one else can use it.

Its something that my soon to be ex g/f and her son either put on the computer or are accessing through the internet. I use the text editor that comes with the mac infrequently and have never seen anything like this before. She insists she doesnt know anything about it, she's lied so much I have no choice but to leave her. Thanks for your help. Tug

It's simple. Reformat the Mac and leave her behind. I could personally care less for your relationship issues. If you are really so worried, format the drive and start over from scratch (in both counts).

Her son installed some MS Office software on their mac one of the programs was Microsoft Entourage which I think she was using to conceal what she was doing or possibly Google Chrome beings it was reciently installed. It was her house and her mac so formatting it wasnt an option so what I did before I moved out (yes I left her) I uninstalled Entourage, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome than wiped the HD to ensure those files couldnt be retrieved. All she had to do is be honest with me but she couldnt even do that. Thanks for all your help

Wow. It was her house and her computer, and you wiped the hard drive clean and you think SHE has problems?

Those are just Windows keyboard mappings!

Sounds like she's had a lucky escape!

I'm just gonna say this!!! People here at Mac Forums are great people!! They try and do everything in their power to help people like your self "WITH COMPUTER PROBLEMS" We're all really tired of hearing about your relationship issues. I'm sure there are other sites or forums that can help you with your trust issues. Now that you have completely wiped HER system, Dude Move On!! Why would you even take the time to uninstall all of her browsers??? Sounds like "you" have MORE than computer problems!!!

Wow...wiped her HDD. Over a fear that a file you cannot view may or may not contain something you may or may not need to worry about. In her house. Her property, her activities, on her computer...and your response to an unknown was to take direct, immediate action to destroy her personally owned data and operating system? Wonder what HER cost to fix all that will be?

I closed the thread as the insults to the OP are getting a bit much and not fitting with the friendly forums we try and run here.
