User Usage Monitoring

Our HR department needs use to have the ability to to monitor a users workstation. What they would need a usage report showing:
1. User who is logged in
2. Internet usage showing how much time was being used on the internet and sites visited, how long at each site etc..
3. Application useage and time each application was in use.
Does anyone have experiance with this or suggestions on software packages ? Our firewall logs will of course tell us where and when but does not give any information on duration or activity.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. You could use the tool PsLoggedon from www.systernals.com (Acquired by MS, but go by that URL and you'll get to the correct page)

2. For this one, you need to have advanced solution packages like WebSense, N2H2, iPrism etc. I have worked with WebSense and it is a pretty good tool for this.

It provides you with the username/site logged in/block-allow based on the website content etc. Also it will integrate with AD so you don't have any management headache.

3. For application usage, I'm not aware of any tools right now but why would you need that? Application in a sense what applications?
