Bet, all of you, even once, have had a need to monitor your own PC. For example, you are a caring parent and need to know whom your kids are talking to or what websites they are visiting while you’re away. Or you are suspecting your spouse/ girlfriend or boyfriend in cheating (which is in fact the most similar situation when someone needs keylogger :) )
One of such monitoring tools is Elite Keylogger by Widestep Security Software. I’ve tested it last couple of days and must say that if you need to know every small detail of what is going on your PC – this tool is just what you need.
So, from the very beginning. You can download Elite Keylogger 7 day trial version here. Demo version has only time limitations, not features, so you can evaluate this keylogger even using demo. Installation process was very smooth and intuitive. You are to choose in which mode to install keylogger – visible mode, invisible mode or just to install log viewer. If you are a newbie in keyloggers – I advise you to install it in visible mode.
After you have chosen your password, you are ready to spy!:) But do not forget your unhide word, as keylogger runs in stealth mode and you can’t see it until typing this word.
After the launch you will see the main window in which you can configure and set main parameters of monitoring.
Concerning the main features. With this keylogger you can view chats, instant messages, emails, Internet activity, absolutely all keystrokes, programs’ activity, all passwords and even Windows logon password, usernames and time they worked on your computer, desktop activity, clipboard and more.
Moreover, Elite keylogger takes screenshots of your desktop in a definite period of time. You can filter logs, save them or delete all of them. You can also receive all the logs via e-mail and send them to FTP and save them remotely. One of the new features added was possibility to send logs to USB drive once it is plugged in.
You can also choose the accounts and applications which have to be monitored. In case you want users to know that the computer is monitored – you can apply “Show monitoring warning on startup” option.
And what is the main advantage of a keylogger? Of course, its invisibility. While testing none of antiviruses detected this one small utility.
As you can see, the range of options this keylogger offers is rather wide. And if you need to get detailed information of all PC activity – this keylogger is just what you need.
Elite Keylogger is compatible with Win 2000/XP/Vista/7 x32 (64-bit edition is in development)
