Hi,

I am looking for some safe free key logging software to install onto a computer (Windows 7).

I would like it to just log key strokes locally so I can view in log or report format the keystrokes entered.

This is specifically for this as  parental monitoring a clients child's use of their laptop. The client does have admin rights to the computer and can log on at anytime to the computer to view logs. The software need to be completely discreet - i.e. the child cannot know it is installed.

Any suggestions are greatly recommended.

Many thanks,

Regards,

GISVPN

Hi thanks for the link - none of these appear to be freeware. Do you know any freeware/shareware applications?

Thanks,

Here are some free ones:

http://download.cnet.com/Free-Keylogger/3000-2162_4-10419683.html

Unfortunately, their ratings reflect that.  For example, from this cnet.com listing, they tend to be in the 2 1/2 to 3 stars rating area.  Of course, if they do what you need, then there isn't a need to use one of the pay for programs.

Can check this out @ http://www.ilovefreesoftware.com/18/windows/5-best-free-keyloggers.html
1. Actual Keylogger
2. REFOG Free Keylogger
5. Kidlogger

Too bad, Home Keylogger did not mentioned if it support Windows 7 though
Revealer Keylogger Free version presents limited functionalities. It is visible in the task manager, at Windows startup and on the drive.

Thought this K9 software is useful (and free) @ http://www1.k9webprotection.com/
