I have a need to monitor my computer. I would like to be able to see websites visited and monitor chat room activity, including keystrokes etc..

Any good recommendations?

While there may be legitimate and legal uses, what you want to install would be considered spyware, and we don't recommend programs for that use here, we help people remove spyware and other malware.

Possibly what might meet your needs is to be sure the computer is in an open, visible area, rather than off in an isolated area that can't be easily monitored.

If that's not an option, you may want to try filtering and parental control software such as the free K9 Web Protection from BlueCoat. It's essentially the same filtering (via software) that I would pay for if I was using the optional subscription filtering in my hardware firewall.

If you can't trust your kids to surf the web without being monitored, then you need to either surf with them, or sit down and have a few talks with them.

The use of parental control software is another idea, and TheJoker pointed out a great piece of software for that...

Probably an alternative: Windows SteadyState - described here by miekiemoes... ;)..

Try  You can set it up to send logs to your emails. I had it setup so every hour, it would send me an email filled with pictures. Every 60 seconds it took a screenshot of his desktop, as well as every time a new application was launched. So every hour I got emails with over 60 images in them, along with every word they typed into every window. It's worth a look, I think they have a trial version somewhere.

cmicheeljim,
 
If you took the time to read a few of the comments in this topic, you would have seen that we are not going to allow people to SPAM ads for keyloggers...  Keyloggers are almost never appropriate and most often used to invade privacy - we do not support that...

 

EDIT: With investigation, this person is a known SPAMmer posting from China...  He/she/it is now banned...

CiHunter, please note that this was a 5 1/2 year old topic, where someone was requesting spyware, which we do not tolerate.

I would like to recommend you **** or ****. These programs provide both real time monitoring and history reports. It could be useful many ways)
