IE explorer history logfile
Posted on 2004-09-17
Hi guys, got another question for you all.
My boss has asked me to find a way to "secretly" record the contents of IE browser history into a text file that can be opened and read. He wants to be able to track the web browsing of certain employees. I know the easiest way to do this is just to block restricted sites via the firewall, but not all of the flagged sites are restricted. I need to find a way to run a program in the background that will write addresses to a log file when they are entered into the search bar.
One way to handle this, and most likely the easiest, is to design my own web browser via the API object, but I dont want to do it this way. Is there a way to tap into the real IE application and record?
Willing to bump up the points if/when this question becomes more complicated.
