I know this might be a hot and immoral topic but my boss has asked me and I need to give him an answer.  I've setup a home network for my boss and his kids that of 3 PCs, laptop, 2 x network printers & NAS backup. (All XPSP2)

My boss has asked me if there is a way he can log in to the PCs of his kids to see what they have open on-screen but without them knowing it.  I know there are apps like PCAnywhere, Dameware etc for remote control but I am unsure of the intricacies involved in remote, unnoticed viewing of screen activity.

I could be moral and tell him it can't be done but if he finds from someone else that it can be done then I'll be in a bit of hot water.

Hope you can help.  Thanks in advance.
