There are spying programs like SpectorPro that track URL's, programs opened, log keystrokes, take screen shots etc... BackOriface is free and can do the same things.

Will it be installed on their machine, or on a TerminalServer ? Either should work with TS or RemoteDesktop but I'm not positive. You can place the program in the "startup" directory for that user (if they've logged on to that pc/server before and have a profile) c:\documents and settings\user_name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Rich thank you!  If you could get me the link for it I think it sounds like it will work.  The user does have a profile - we log in through citrix and the servers are 2003!

with the management console I have it logging logins so I can see the person is logging on but have no way to determine activity thus I need this tool.  the company won't permit me to just ax her from certain hours (seems the most plausible solution to me) but wants to know what they are doing after hours on the company's system.

Just an FYI that the Supreme Court has upheld some expectation of privacy in certain situations even if the equipment is completely owned by the company. Besides there are tons of ways to skin this cat within group policy and firewall. Give me some details and I will try to help out.
