I just can't seem to remember what this movie's called.

All I remember is that it's from around 2000-2009. The bad guy puts up surveillance cameras in a woman's house, he becomes friends with her, helps her carry grocery bags etc.

Apparently he kicks her husband off of a horse too...

EDIT: Well, it's an English speaking movie, the husband of the family works with computers somehow, and the bad guy wants his help to steal some money. He installs some cameras in the family's home which the police then finds.

It's a thriller/drama.

That last sentence was hilarious! Can you provide more details about the movie such as language, genre (drama, horror, etc), describe a few more scenes or possibly describe the characters . – DustinDavis Mar 5 '14 at 0:12

Was it Firewall? – DustinDavis Mar 5 '14 at 0:19
No it's not Firewall, a friend thought so too – Jakob Lindvall Mar 5 '14 at 0:20
Where does he want to steal money from and how does he propose it gets done? – DustinDavis Mar 5 '14 at 0:22

the movie is Alone with Her (2006):

Invasion of privacy and domestic spying take on terrifying meaning in this unsettling tale of voyeurism. A young man has a secret obsession for a beautiful woman. By planting hidden cameras and listening devices in her home, he learns her most intimate secrets in order to manipulate her into a relationship that she innocently permits. Shot entirely through hidden cameras, including a "body cam," Alone With Her takes the audience to an extreme level of voyeuristic intimacy, exploiting both our fear of being watched and our compulsion to watch.

No it's not that one either, that was my first guess :/ – Jakob Lindvall Mar 6 '14 at 15:26

I think the movie you mean is Sliver.

Carly Norris is a book editor living in New York City who moves into the Sliver apartment building. In the apartment building, Carly meets two of her new neighbors, author Jack Lansford who writes thriller novels and Zeke Hawkins, the handsome owner of the apartment building. Carly finds that some of the women living in the apartment building have been murdered and the police suspect that there is a serial killer in the apartment building. Carly has a passionate and seductive love affair with Zeke, unaware Zeke has secretly wired the apartment building with hidden cameras and he has been watching the lives of each tenant living in the apartment building including Carly. Carly begins to suspect Zeke or Jack may be the serial killer responsible for the murders in the apartment building and she may be the killer's next victim.
