I have found this program online and I was wondering if this would be good for a small business? I have been on other forums and they all tell me to stay away from spyware but I need something to prove that they are using the computers for personal use.

what do you mean?

I don't understand what you are saying. Is spyrecon not a legitimate way to see what they are doing? I need something that is not visible by them and that I can use to make sure that they are doing there job and not spending their day browsing online. I really appreciate any information that anyone has. Even if they are against spyware. I have a very small budget and can't afford to buy the top of the line ones. I just need something simple that shows me what they are doing. I have also found a program called ceze.com it is really interesting.

If You Install It On My Machine, I'll See The Installation..
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / May 29, 2008 6:56 AM PDT
In reply to: what do you mean?

If you want something that's not visible to them, then this isn't it.. If you read Marianna's post HERE, you'll see that it places files in the Program Files folder, etc. That's the point. In order to use this program, you'll need to install it on each machine.. Once that's done, every user will know that it's installed by simply looking in the Add/Remove Programs section or at the "Program Files" list, and if any are administrators, then can uninstall it locally..

That's not the best way for monitoring software to function.. Think "Shadow" or "SpyAgent" as a few cheap ones.. There are a lot of others if you just do the research.. Still, knowledgeable users may be able to find it anyway, especially if they've got a third party firewall.

Hope this helps.

yes, thank you

I was looking and this was the cheapest one that I could find.I found about 6 of them total but the only reason why I liked this ones was because it was cheapest. I highly doubt that most of the employees that we are going to be watching are computer savvy enough to even know that the computer has Add/Remove program on it. Most of them couldn't even figure out how to use an instant messenger. I doubt that half of them know how to do anything other than use the couple of programs that are already installed on it. They aren't the brightest bunch of people. I will look at the ones that you suggested. I really appreciate all of your input. I am new to actual working on computers but I know my way around them.
