Hi Everyone,

I need an application that will monitor key activities on a particular workstation in the company, I would prefer a free solution (obvoiusly lol) however, if for the sake of a few $$ I can get a better solution I would be interested.

The things that I would like to monitor are as follows:

- Application Installation / Un-installation
- Web Activity, either through Firefox or IE
- Attachment / Detachment of removable storage

Thanks,

Xavier

Hi,

Please check out the below options:

NetVizor

Activity Monitor

IPrism

I don't think there is any open-source employee monitoring application, though using an Inventory application you can check the softwares installed on remote PCs.

Comparing most popular employee monitor softwares, I recommend Spector and IMonitor, the reason is those two softwares are all in one tools, and strongly stable and powerful.
If your company isn't so large and doesn't care cost, Spector would be first choice. Otherwise IMonitor must be satisfied with all you need.

However,spectorsoft is a little expensive compared with IMonitor. As Imonitor is also powerful and trusted, Imonitor would be your first choice.
