Hi,
  My company only got 10 people and we don;t use server.  All we use peer-to-peer network connection with WindowsXP.

  My boss want to monitor the users everyday activity like where they visit from Internet, what document they use etc..   How can we do??  Can we install something and we check the log ?

Please advise

For logging what uses access on a system I'd recommend using GPO's on the workstations itself.  You don't need a Domain to enable them.

Just open up the MMC (Start -> Run -> mmc) console and add the Group Policy snap inn.

Here's the path in the GPO snap inn:

Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policy -> Audit Policy

Here's a link to descibe the options within this Snap in:

This can keep track of new/open/changed/deleted files as well as logins and other user based events.


Hope this helps some.
