Dear Experts,

As you know the idea of monitoring applications that lets you see what other doing in their system such as your children is very good way, but from security point of view, the applications uses Spyware and rootkits techniques to capture, monitor and hide from target users.

Some of applications I found are Spector Pro and eBlaster :

So, the question is that is it safe to use these monitoring applications in your systems and how can you be sure that the same data you received from target (website visited, IM, email ...) it will not send to someone else ! or used the system to something more dangerous. Is there any suggestions to get the benefits of monitoring software as well as be secure ?

As I know there is no open source applications that works under windows for monitoring which will be the best secure option, Waiting for Experts.

Thanks in advance.
Regards.
