Any tools to monitor activity for XP?

    Eric Flightless Bird

    Does anyone have any suggestions on any tools on XP with SP3 keep record on
    activities for XP? such as copying files, running application, accessing
    internet. I know Event Viewer, but it does not contain the log for copying
    files
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions
    Eric

    Does Key logger only record any keyboard activity?
    Can it record copy and paste files using mouse?
    Can it record what application is being used at specific time?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    "Keylogger" is a generic term for hardware and/or software that records
    keystrokes and/or mouse activities and/or "all users activity on the
    PC." Some are free, some are for sale, and some are malware. You need to
    do some research on what's available and compare it to what you want to
    do. Here are some places to start:

    There are gobs of monitoring files around. Here are a few you can look up
    with google; they do about what their names imply:

    filemon
    regmon
    diskmon
    portmon
    procman (process monitor)
    startup monitor
    pagefilemon
    tcpview
    ip lan wan finder
    and many more. By the time you've found those you will also have found a
    plethora of others. Happy googling.

    lem's post has provided
    some useful links.

    what you are liking
    seeking is a method
    to spy and there are
    a number of methods
    to help you.

    incidentally, keep in mind
    that any spyware you may
    end up choosing may be
    inhibited by any anti-
    virals installed on the
    system.

    I don't know or care about "lem", but nothing I recommended was spyware of
    any kind and won't include spyware if it's downloaded from reputable web
    sites. Those are very useful trouble-shooting tools and that's all they are.
    You'd be hard pressed to use them for spying on any machine that has any
    modicum of Security installed.
    Some of the sources as SysInternals (now MS), SourceForge, ElderGeek, and
    similar places; I don't recall which is which or even if that list is all
    inclusive. There is a monitor available for just about any part of a
    computer one wishes to monitor. SIW is another I left out of the list as is
    WinPatrol and afew others.

    Chill out, Twayne. I wasn't writing about anything you posted (I posted
    to this thread before you did). I was responding to the OP's question
    about "key loggers" -- a topic which was first raised by "db."

    No problem Len. I no longer recall the details but someone linked us somehow
    and all I meant was I wasn't speaking for you nor vice-versa. IIRC someone
    said something about the products like you and I recommended containing
    spyware . Since the reference was snipped out I chose to add a bit of
    separation, that's all. Personally I don't recall what you said so I needed
    to be careful of speaking for you. That's all.

    HTH,
