Big brother's watching: passwords mean very little with this product. (B.E. Reviews).
The program is easy to set up and is invisible to the user; to launch Spector, IT administrators simply use command keys that they set up, type in a password, and select the Play button to quickly scan the PC. The application takes snapshots of a computer monitor as often as 60 times per minute. We were able to view snapshots of e-mails, keystrokes, Websites visited, chat conversations, and instant messages.
Spector lets you customize settings so you can, say, keep data for up to 999 days (provided you have the disk space) and/or take a screen shot every second or 20 seconds. The program also lets you specify keywords--for example, "sex" or "I hate my job"--and sends an alert via e-mail whenever those words are used. ($149.95; www.spectorsoft.com)
