Although I did not download this software, as I already have my own, I simply cannot let all the comments about morality and spouse- and child-spying go unanswered. Sorry, I realize that's NOT WHAT THIS WEBSITE IS ALL ABOUT, but let me tell you from experience: I have one of those cheating,lying spouses. He's a PRO. If I didn't spy on him I'd be totally ignorant of what he is doing because he is such a good liar. Fortunately, I noticed signs that were out of character, and made me suspicious. Confronting did no good, he lied. Confronting with PROOF did no good, he lied. So while I'm doing something some consider to be immoral,I may be protecting myself from numerous other problems, because what he's after isn't exactly the cream of the crop, if you know what I mean. So shut-up about morality--you will never convince me I'm the one with poor morals. I trusted for too long, now I'm wiser. My advice--if it works, go for it.

I think (I could be realy wrong here) that I remember something given away on GAOD like this, plus, it didnt use spyware of trojans ect. Anyway, I am very concerned about security, and am actually making a blog about it. Anyway, i dont think (by the comments given) that you should use this "software". And, as said by #1, there are free alternatives. My verdict, dont install use nor download.

#107:Yes this is Spyware. Once again, for those who still don't get it:Any program which monitors activity on your computer as this software does is spyware, and yes this software is illegal in any situation. Research the laws, and you will find out it is illegal for any individual to spy on someone without their knowledge. This is no different than tapping someone's phone line. Only cops/government can do this (even they need a court order from a judge to do so).There are safe alternatives to this built into windows for everybody to use.

A total disaster. While trying to install Overspy my McAffee detected Trojans in the program. Mc
affe gives you the option to keep if you feel it's Ok. Coming from "Giveawayoftheday". where we are told they scrutinized all the software that they sell or give out free, I decided to accept their word and downloaded the program. Terrible decision. The program never work right, and when I decided to delete it, it took half an hour trying to do it. The program would not delete. Further more my Windows XP Pro could hardly function.
There's a lesson here for "Giveawayoftheday" to clean better and bragg less about their programs.

As @usethistoregister commented, this is Spyware. Those trojans allow it to copy keystrokes (such as passwords) and more, and send it to an email configured by the person who deployed it. Hackers can also manipulate this program to work for them. Why would they create a trojan when you already have one for them to use? Those who like programs like limewire, it's spyware also. If you like limewire emule is a safe (and portable) alternative.

Leaving out the question of moral/immoral software. . .

This would have been useful for me if it had worked as it was designed, but many of its features did not function properly (appeared in Add/Remove when it was not supposed to, screenshots only taken unpredictably and occasionally, hung system at shutdown, appeared intermittently in taskbar when in stealth mode, etc,) so I had to remove it.
After uninstall, found a mysterious add-on still enabled in IE, looked it up, and found it was from Overspy. Also found these instructions for complete removal:

Many people mentioned using this as a method of watching where your children or network users are going online or to check to see if they are watching porn.

My suggestion is to use OpenDNS.com's free service which 1. makes surfing faster and more reliable but also 2. allows you to block content by category (ex: nudity, instant messaging, download/warez sites, etc). That will be the best free way to control your network users for free and it will also keep a record of website attempts which were blocked and other additional web usage stats, if you allow it to. I believe they also block sites which automatically load viruses but I'm not 100% sure.

But for viruses (other than blocking download/warez sites) you should really just get good AV software (not Norton or McAfee; After doing a lot of research, I found Nod32 both the most effective AND resource efficient). For those parents who want to über-ly super control their children from predators, I suggest disabling javascript and flash in the browsers as most chat rooms will use either one of those.

I got it to install on XP pro sp3. Seems to work, but when I try to click on the "Log Off" button, a small icon appears in the lower left of the screen, clearly with the word "over" on it. I have to click on "Log Off" a 2nd time to get the system to log off. Zero help files and their web site is totally useless. No idea as to what's going on or what the fix might be.

This software if used the wrong way will get you into trouble however on your personal system to track un-authorized usage is fine.. As for Security Purposes I'd setup the task manager with a printscreen save instead of a trojan like tool... because unfortunately eventhough the software has been programmed in a clean way... one little extra line of code in theses types of softwares and your personal info is all over the web....

Heck in my case I use softwares like this to track my work day activities... more like a reverse net nanny... keeps me on track when I really need to get a project done..

this is great! when it installs its just 5 or so files in the install location (I was unable to change where it originally installed to) which means not only does it take up very little memory, you can move the files into a folder on you flash drive and have portable spying power. you could even transfer them from your flash drive to someone else's computer and it is now installed on their computer, with all of your settings (such as stealth mode) intact. just install it, give the folder an important sounding name like SYSCHECK or something, and then use the hide from add/remove list option. its now fully hidden.

This is a combination of keylogger and spyware.
Quick googling showed that this software is labeled as malware by many antivirus programs (a-squared, Microsoft, Symantec and others).
But this kind of program might be useful for some people.
It is your decision whether you want to use this program or not, but if you decide to use it, add an exception for it in your antivirus program.

Just one more thing (Comment #29) You are paranoid you don't need to do all that to be able to have a cleaner system all you really need are good antivirus/antispyware scanners running in the backround with the resident shields ON and real time protection turned ON with updates always to the max and a good firewall as well. It just sounds like to much trouble the way you protect your system to many things running!!!
Sandboxie is fine to test out programs that got a bad rap in the past or if there suspisious because ether new or not popular enough. Remember two things thinking you have good protection and KNOWING you have good protection thinking is one thing but knowing forsure well most likely your right when your sure. You just sound too cautious!!!

Overspy installed and runs fine for me while my antivirus was on with no warnings what so ever about viruses or spyware!!! Just the usual firewall pickups for the instalition and main execute and what not GOTD I seriously think would not have such software up for download if were harmful or infected they would have already had known that before putting up here. Theres no reason anyone should have to turn off there antivirus just to install a program unless there settings on the antivirus are too high there are lots of crazy scanners out there that think everything is a virus or spyware when indeed its just a false positive. If a program wants you to disable your AV then most likely its rouge software telling you it can't run or install because your AV is on. Sometimes there fixed to do that cause it can detect any antivirus running in the backround and it does not want it operating so it can peform its rouge duties unguarded.

I wanted to get something like this for my home PC to monitor my kids but after installing this program (and uninstalling it), I think I would rather take my chances. This program really slowed down my PC to the point of being unusable. My PC is back to normal after uninstalling it. SO IF YOU WANT A REALLY SLOW PC, INSTALL THIS. OTHERWISE, PASS ON IT.

Well, I had customers that would really like software like this, but it doesn't work worth a damn. It only captured 4 screenshots, can't track websites, there isn't even a help manual for it, not enough settings... I really don't think this is the full version.
Not to mention it was a pain to install. I think if you have a decent antivirus, even if you permit exceptions for the program, it won't allow it to do its job correctly.

Everyone says this slows your system down. If you run Vista you can augment your RAM Memory with a ReadyBoost enabled USB flash drive. You plug the USB stick into your computer. Start> Computer> Rt-click on USB drive and go to Properties>ReadyBoost tab. Then test the drive to see if it is useable to augment your memory. A good thing about Vista.

#88 Thanks for the info.

When my child was a teenager one of her friends slashed her wrists as a result of AIM conversation with another of their friends. The only reason the girl didn't die was because the cyber bully changed her mind and called for help. I put a keylogger on my computer. Come to find out people from all over the world were talking on my computer. I still don't know what was up with that. I wrote 0s to the drive and reinstalled the system.

Spiritwolf #107: I've had the same problem with IE - nothing to do with Overspy or Spyware Terminator, cause I haven't even installed them. I think the bug is in IE and may be related to automation of IE - at any rate, when IE gets interrupted and is unable to finish what it's doing, it appears to get "confused" and this rampant tab behaviour is the result.

Try Google's Chrome - there are so many other benefits, you'll never want to use IE again - except unfortunately, for automation! ;-)

Fair comment Bill Sivula. I was also suprised by the Winpcap. Ultimately though, I made a decision. I wanted to use spyware to my advantage and so gave it reasonable ground. It may eventually prove costly against me, who knows... but I'm confident I can get out of it more than it gets from me. Thus far i have no reason to complain.

If I did have a complaint, I'd say that whilst the program acts stealthily, it's easily found as an installed program for clued up people.

Once again though. It's my machine, and I tell users so. I also tell them not to sit in my computer chair if it's uncomfortable.

Use the product wisely, don't get paranoid, (afterall everybody talks about everybody else, accept it) and I'm sure you'll be ok.

My point is to be the one knowing who is installing keyloggers and rogue software against you and your kin then use that information to protect you all.

Regards
Rob

Bah Seems like a little bit more useful then a screensaver or a another task manager of sorts. I have people come over sometime going on the computer and what not this may prove useful to me to monitor whats happening while Im not watching. And its also a good way to find out other peoples passwords and logins as well hehehe!!! Ive used Keystroke Recorder before and it works quite well and does not act as spyware.

Second off most computer monitoring programs will act as spyware because they must record the keystrokes and monitor any kind of action taking place if they don't then the program will simply not work. What do you think harmful spyware does to the CPU when executed at command it tracks you keeps reference to web sites you visit and sends back to the advertisers to send junk advertising e-mails thus they can advertise there products easyer since they know what your interests are.

I have SuperAntiSpyware AVG Antivirus and PC Tools Firewall Plus. Lets see what happens upon install with these three.

Have to agree 100% with 11. Never disable your AV or FW just install a program. Now, with that said, I seriously doubt GOTD is going to have infected programs running through their own servers to your machine. In these cases, where you can feel safe with GOTD's offerings, it may be easier to add the file(s) in question to the exclusion list in your AV or FW before you install. If any file shows up as blocked during the process, write it's name down, add it to the AV exclusion list, then try to reinstall. You can set your AV to give you a warning notice, as opposed to automatic quarantine/ deletion of needed files. Either way, don't take chances with any unfamiliar programs unless you have a good backup utility--or don't mind fomatting.

I know I waste hours in front of my computer, but I will not waste more hours in front of it browsing through what I did in front of it while wasting the time I did waste while wasting more time looking through all that a second time. Or a third, fourth fifth, and so on, time, because it will presumably log you while you look through the log too.... :p ah the recursiveness...

Well, I have no thumbs up nor down for this software, it might be good it might not.

#102, that's true but only as far as it goes.
If you are in a location with no expectation of privacy, you can conduct surveillance without a court order. If this were not true, all the cameras at various stores would be illegal. Sure, a lot of places use disclaimer stickers but that's only a courtesy (and it helps notify would-be thieves as well).

When you log on to a computer using a username and password, you have a reasonable expectation of privacy. The act of requiring a password implies privacy. If you're just banging away on the keys at a public library though, requiring no sign-on and no authorization, then you are on a PUBLIC computer and have no expectation of privacy. At the same time though, the surveillance software would be pretty useless as there's no way of telling who it is that's performing the activities. ;)

I am not a lawyer... but I AM a security consultant. Part of the job involves knowing when you can legally record activities, covertly or otherwise.

107, Spiritwolf, I have to say that I'm very surprised that someone with your level of PC savvy would even install that garbage AS program, Spyware Terminator! Sorry brother, but thats something I'd have never expected from you or anybody else thats an intermediate to power user.

I wholeheartedly agree with #109, WhiteWolf! REVO that garbage but do it in advanced mode. It's that or reg edit but it's got to go. Completely! But your not the only one thats had issues with ST. If it's a free AS you need, try anything else but that.

Now, as to todays offer, I pass because I have no need of anything like this but I won't vote on it or any comments here today.

I installed (Giveaway) OverSpy today. After its installation was approximately done, it began installing WinPCAP. After a few seconds, I grew suspicious, re-activated my Anti-Virus software, and attempted to stop installation.
IF WinPCAP was a legitimate part of OverSpy installation,
I believe "Giveaway" should have notified its members of the additional software that would be installed. Also, that additional software gave me NO CHOICE as to where it would install.

I went to safe mode (which hung) and then "restart with last successful parameters", to again-bring-Windows "up". I have now uninstalled OverSpy. There are too many unknowns, I now believe,
to install it.

I like that you can choose what it monitors. (Chats are the only thing I'm interested.)

It says it will monitor ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, & IRC chats. Sadly, it doesn't seem to monitor AIM or MySpace chats. (MySpace chats are the main ones I'm interested in since I have a teen.)

The weirdest thing just happened, I hope it doesn't happen again from this pc. When I posted my last comment to GAOTD and then closed the page, it popped up this same GAOTD page although it showed the address as about:blank/ and kept popping up IE tabs about:blank/ and loading this same GAOTD page in them. I killed IE with taskmanager and after that IE opened again on its own and started this flooding of about:blank/ tabs with this GAOTD page loaded in them. I tried to shut down the pc and it wouldn't shut down. I unplugged the pc to force it to shut down, then plugged it back in again and that appears to have solved the problem, but WHAT CAUSED IT?

BTW I had uninstalled Spyware Terminator previously, but upon reboot it somehow had reinstalled itself again. An error message said access denied when I tried to shut it down via task manager. A program that won't let you access it to shut it down, that's not critical to the system and that reinstalls itself after being uninstalled, how can this NOT be malicious?

I totally agree with KD on all his/her points. Particularly the fact that's it's my damn machine, I'll do what I like with it.
It's also my ip address, registered to me, and if somebody is using it and potentially getting me in trouble, damn right I wanna know.
IF I have to, I also want to prove (where necessary) that any criminal activity is not down to me just because somebody used my pc. I am responsible for the internet activity on my machine.
(I accept that it is possible to just create another user account on the pc and use it myself and then try to admonish blame as it wasn't my user account, so save your breath)

Whether people think it's morally right or wrong, keyloggers and 'system monitors' are popular and will remain so. Everybody has a thing called curiosity built into them. Some people have criminal intent. But as with most things, there are good and bad points. It's down to the user how this product is applied. Same with pretty much anything: guns, cars, drugs, eating too many dorito's, etc. Only in the wrong hands and used irresponsibly will it become a problem

IF your data is that valuable, don't let ANYBODY on your machine, do not connect to the internet, do not have an email address, run backups every fifteen minutes.

Do not download and install something that clearly states what it does and then question the morality of it. People will do what they want. Nobody's morality questioning here has changed my mind. I'm installing it and using it.

One other thing, you may just be protecting your own children, but equally when using this product, it might find that somebody who uses your pc could actually be a child abuser or a perv who likes kiddie photo's (a very very narrow percent I hope) thus protecting far more children in the long run.

OverSpy has got it's uses and I'd like to Thank GAOTD for providing this.

"USE IT RESPONSIBLY."

@beekersguy, on the other hand, the same "God" and a great bunch o little god's aka politicians and law makers have no issues in use a computer or some programs without a license to create a lil' bit of personal interest propaganda. :)
I could not agree more with you !
There's no use in bringing God or law's in this product reviews as long as nobody is forced to use it agains own will or belives.
On the other hand, with or without this program Giveaway does a great job for all; and they never could satisfy all, that's a fact. So why not be a little more constructive and to keep the comments on programs instead or religion or what's moral or immoral ?
All what's good in life it's imoral, ilegal or put some fat on our asses. So ?

Also regarding the 6 free, etc...I tried spyware terminator the other day after seeing it recommended by someone in GAOTD comments, and IT ALSO INSTALLS UNWANTED SOFTWARE, the crawler toolbar which tries to reset your homepage and search engine and uses a lot of memory (Crawler toolbar consistently uses 64,000 K or more of Virtual Memory!) and every time you search via google or any other toolbar, crawler toolbar tries to take over your searching, opening tabs, etc. You cannot run either Spyware Terminator or its companion program, Web Security Guard, without the Crawler toolbar. The Crawler toolbar is classified as adware/spyware/trojan in a number of malware databases including:
http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Adware.Win32.Crawler+Toolbar
http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/grayware/ve_graywareDetails.asp?GNAME=ADWARE%5FCRAWLER

excellent discussion of the topic of whether spyware terminator is safe or not, including some screenshots, tests, and description of its more undesirable activities, such as "phoning home" when you try to uninstall it.
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/viewtopic.php?t=19553&highlight=crawler

A number of antimalware sites consider Crawler toolbar safe because it doesn't behave as rogue antispyware does. Evidently those who say it's safe, have not taken into consideration the fact that it uses a lot of memory, slows down your pc, and tries to take over your searches, takes over your IE tabs, and by default wants to reset your homepage and search engine preferences.

#72, this CAN and DOES violate many state laws IF-NOT:!

#a You must have a court order to conduct surveillance without prior admission or notice; see next.

#b You must inform that "actions, sites, activities, and communications may/can/will/... be monitored at this computer" and include anything else this program covers.

# as per precedent set in California, Illinois, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts; #b INCLUDES a parent monitoring a minor and those at religious organizations, libraries, et al.

That said; I won't install this. Such software violates many of my core principles.

I had a friend years ago that used a keylogger to find proof of a cheating spouse. Nasty stuff, but he had suspicions and no proof. The keylogger gave him his evidence.

There are legitimate uses for this regardless of some moral objections.

Personally, I have no use for this software, but that being said, I'm sure there are those who do.

The owner of the computer can install any type of software they please, without having to tell others what is on it.

If I wanted to install this to track how much time I waste during a work period rather than doing my work, then I would have a need for this type of software.

Sounds like a lazy way to discipline yourself, I know, but I have heard others report doing this.

As far as using it to spy on family members, I'll leave that up to you and your own beliefs. If you take care of business, you'll never need to do that, however.

Wow, what a great idea... Spyware you can have installed on your system that you're actually aware of! This is not a keeper!

Thanks anyway GOTD.

Just what we need, 1984 in 2009...."One Nation, Under Surveillance" and all the free tools available to achieve total transparency in all of our lives.

Shame on GOTD for participating in the distribution of this fascist tool and shame on anyone that buys into the bullshit premise of its functionality. George Orwell, George Bush and Dick Cheney would be proud of you all.
