I need to monitor a single users web activity for my manager. Do you know of any simple programs to monitor web activity on a single user that will show visited sites and web usage?

Some enterprise level routers have this ability.

There are also some network monitoring tools that don't require installation on the client computer.

Of course, either of these methods only works when the client computer is inside your network.

You really don't want to go down the route of installing a program on the user's computer.  Not only would this possibly be blocked by antivirus or antimalware scanning, but the user may even notice that the program has been installed.

You should also make sure your company has a policy that the user has signed which has notified that user that at any time, web traffic may be monitored.

IANAL, but in the U.S., employers have no obligation to inform their employees they are being monitored.  They are free to monitor resource usage, including internet usage, as they see fit.
