I have read several books on this subject that suggest that going
over your partners history, recycle bins, deleted emails, etc.
will tell you what your partner is doing on the computer and who
they may be communicating with. In my opinion, this simply does
not work. Most people today are computer savvy enough to know how
to get rid of the evidence on their computer. It is very easy to
do and only takes seconds. Unless your partner just gets sloppy
this usually won't help.
There are many different brands of computer monitoring software on
the market. Trust me, they are not all created equal.
If you are looking for something that can be installed remotely
via email. I would suggest Win-Spy.
This software remotely installs to your computer through email.
Unlike the other remote spy titles on the market, Win-Spy fully
and completely bypasses the Windows Firewall.
The program then records user activities and sends the data to
your online control panel. You login to your control panel to view
spy results using your own password-protected account.
This program records a wide array of PC activities in real time.
All activity is secretly and temporarily recorded to the PC and
then uploaded to your online account where you can login and view
the following results:
Web Sites Visited Applications Executed Keystrokes Typed Passwords
Typed Documents Opened Windows Opened File Changes Folder Changes
Active Window Screenshots Full Chats and Instant Messages in:
Yahoo! Instant Messenger Windows Live Messenger AOL Instant
Messenger America Online Paltalk ICQ
If remote installation is not necessary SpectorPro or Eblaster are
definitely the best on the market.
Spector Pro records every detail of what they do on the computer
including their chats, instant messages, emails, the web sites
they visit, what they search for, what they do on MySpace, the
pictures they post and look at, the keystrokes they type, the
programs they run and much more. And because of its advanced
surveillance screen snapshot features, you get to see not only
WHAT they do, but the EXACT order in which they do it, step by
step. With Spector Pro, you will never doubt who is doing what on
With SpectorPro you must access the computer to install the
program and to retrieve the info off of it.
eBlaster Internet spy software is the ONLY software in the world
that will capture their incoming and outgoing email, chats and
instant messages - then IMMEDIATELY forward you an EXACT COPY.
In addition, eBlaster spy software records ALL emails, chats,
instant messages, web sites visited, keystrokes typed, programs
launched and peer-to-peer (P2P) files downloaded - then sends it
to you via email in the form of a detailed Activity Report.
Receive your Activity Reports as frequently as once every hour or
once a day.
Essentially eblaster will give you much the same information as
Spector Pro without the screen shots and email the info to
whatever email you tell it to.
All of this software can be completely hidden on the computer so
that the user does not know that they are being monitored.
