You would need something like Niksun's NetVCR to monitor everything.

What are your real goals? What activity do you really want to monitor?

try "remote administrator" http://www.radmin.com .  Very good program. you can control,view,telnet and file browse.  Also you can hide the client so that the user has no idea of being monitored.

Hi all

Thank you very much. actually I would like to monitor the user's activity like what they are currently doing on a particular client machine.which program, file they are working at. If they are not tampering with the system files and so on.

Try something like VNC that lets you actually see their screen and see what they are doing. Keystroke loggers would also be another way to do it.

Careful, though, you could be violating personal privacy issues unless you have a written acceptible use policy that specifically tells an employee that they are subject to monitoring.

ajazshah asked to split points between irmoore(25)and jebus(25)

I have reduced the points on this question from 50 to 25 as indicated by your request at Community Support. Please copy the URL and create a new question in this topic area for the other Experts to whom you wish to award points. The title of the question should read "Points for", followed by the Expert's name. In the question itself, you should paste the link to the original question and perhaps a comment stating that the points are for their help with that question. Once you have created the new questions, you can go back to the original, and accept the comment from the Expert for whom you did not create a new question. The Experts will  comment in your new "Points for" question(s), which you then accept and grade to close.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you.
