How do you know a programme did this? Whether its legal or not depends, if it was software that you installed and it stated in the terms and conditions that it will place such a programme on your computer, then there's nothing you can do about it if you installed it accepting those terms and conditions.

If the programme was put on maliciously by a person its up to you to prove they did it, its not up to them to prove they are Innocent. If the programme came over the Internet then it will be virtually impossible for you to prove who did it.

Just delete the programme and be more aware and make sure your security software and firewall is up to date.

This is highly unlikely. MSN messenger does store all conversations in a log which is usually in 'my documents', this can be disabled but is turned on by default.

this has been added to my computer by my partner with the sole purpose of recording my conversations on msn messenger she now has a print out of about 3 weeks conversations we have different msn accounts and different settings on our pc is this legal

I would suggest that you either get anew partner as sh?he obviously distrusts you or stop giving him/her reason to check up on you. As to the legality...not really worth it and as no fraud has been committed you would better have deep pockets for the lawyers.

sh?he = she/he

Now you know about the programme, just delete it and forget about it, they'll soon get fedup when there's nothing to look at.
