SoftActivity Keylogger is a spying tool for your computer. If your untrustworthy children or spouse use your computer unsupervised and you want to check out what they've been doing, this is the type of activity you need.
This is not preventative software, rather it keeps a log of all activity for you to look at at your leisure. It records URLs, chat conversations, received and sent email, and even takes screen-shots of desktop activity. All the information is stored in a special hidden file, and SoftActivity Keylogger will even send out regular email reports if you wish.
The program itself is only accessible with a password entered during installation, so no one but you can search the logs. The 15 day trial version runs with an icon in the system tray, although this is removed if the program is bought, so no one will know it's running.
The records SoftActivity Keylogger provides are impressive and a little scary. It certainly does what it claims to do, though we feel this kind of program is quite underhand. A better alternative is direct supervision, or activation of parental control systems for internet usage, which prevent children seeing the wrong material in the first place. However, if spying is what's needed, this pricey application will suffice.
If you can't trust your cohabitants, SoftActivity Keylogger will provides the means to spy on their computer usage.
