Whether you relish having Orwellian control over your employees or are simply looking for a way to monitor what your children are up to on the net, Desktop Detective could be for you.
Once installed this tiny program runs on startup, and includes a stealth mode for undetectable monitoring of a PC.
Should you be a little fairer in your methods, on-screen warnings can be issued to ensure that users know their activity is being monitored.
Desktop detective is thorough: it monitors and records all keyboard entries, web and chat pages visited, internet calls made, applications used, and so on.
Along with recording text entry Desktop Detective can take screenshots of activity at specified intervals, and send these, along with reports, to an entered email address.
Recorded data can be sent to you via email, and all records are encrypted and password protected to prevent tampering (on or off the PC).
For PCs with multiple users, monitoring can be carried out and filtered by user name.
