I wish to thank Hermann #12 for sharing the freeware ProcastiTracker.
This is useful for remembering when I last performed some activity on the PC e.g. watched a movie video.
Or for statistics of when I turned on the PC each day and surfed for how long , over a 1 month period.

About Exeone's Personal Monitor 2014.
I advise users to be judicious and wise if your express and determined intention is to use the software to carry out secret surveillance (or spying) on someone other than yourself.
That someone can be your spouse, your employees, your friends, your colleagues, (your boss or superiors!!!), your children or even complete strangers.

The reason I advise caution is that this is no longer about software.
This is about human relationships.
No matter how you explain that this surveillance (or spying) is with the best of intentions and for their own good; I think once the subject of your surveillance discovers that you have been doing so without their knowledge --- it will damage relationships very very seriously.

Your spouse and/or children can end up hating you and the emotional and psychological wounds can take a long time to heal.

Installed OK on both XP and Win7 boxes but what is the default hotkey to get the control panel to reappear when it's set to hidden mode? I see
different hotkeys to do different things but I'm missing seeing what is supposed to bring the control panel back up. Perhaps it's my mind going?

#17 @Aaron - What planet do you live on? Do you even have kids? "Children who aren’t ‘monitored’ prosper better." Give me a break! Contrary to your warped way of thinking, the Bible says "the heart is deceitful about all things and desperately wicked." Common sense and observation tells us the same thing. What we use in our family is K9 Web Protection. Trust is earned and children should never be trusted 100% (in other words, you should always check up on what they are doing). One rule of thumb we have in our house; no one gets online when they are at home alone! By the way, I agree with #27, kids don't need the latest and greatest technology.

Unable to use on Windows 7 OS. I've tried installing it 3 times and all I get upon completion is an error message saying
"Unable to execute file: C:\Program Files\Exeone Security\personalmon.exe

Not so long ago I would not have given a program like this disc space.
But recently I resorted to using a similar one as this to allay my suspicions regarding my wife and certain...
You get where i'm coming from ?

@26,

I was thinking the same thing but sadly no. It's more of a keylogger for you to keep track of users who directly use your computer.

Menues and Settings in German are unintelligible (language files made with a translating machine?).

Program crashs with Application Error on Windows 8.1 64bit ("Exception EAccessViolation at address 0042CCAC in module 'personalmon.exe'. Write of address 0000000D.").

Thanx GOTD but unfortunately I don't have any use for this. I do my PC security the easy way. NO ONE ELSE IN THE HOUSE CAN USE MY PC!!!! Got kids, get them their own pc... they are cheap nowadays and they don't need an i7 with 16GB of ram, an old Pentium II from your local flea market or thrift store will do and then just block where you dont want them to go!!!

The only time I can see this being useful is in like a school environment where you have those kiddies who need technology devices however they can't be trusted with them as they are always doing stuff and finding way around blocking security.(let's be honest, Linux>Microsoft as far as blocking stuff!)

As far as myself though as a personal computer user I see no real need for this.

@Aaron-17.. Friend, this isn't the 70's. Having 1 out of college, 2 in college and one a jr in HS, trust is what you show when you hand them the keys to your tricked out jeep or you leave them home alone for the first time at age 16 for the weekend. But when they are at home on the network, socializing (but most use phones anyway) it not them you don't trust, it's the bad element out there. If you put locks on your doors, and you lock them at night, then this is no different. Your just trying to protect your kids, nothing more, nothing less. I'm sure there are some parents who are just control freaks and want to know everything. But don't blanket everyone who uses a program like this as one.

#7, though you might "live" alone, doesn't mean this still couldn't be a useful security tool. What if you just happen to get an email while you're away saying your 'doing stuff'? How can that be? You're not there! LOL.. Just sayin.. it can serve more then just spying on your kids.

@Aaron : That's pretty much crap, what u just said! I look up on my daughter just to make sure she's safe. Does that mean I'm distrustful of her? We live in a world that is rooted in technology. I make it my business to know that she's safe from creepoids and other such folklore that u seem to ignore. What u said isn't exactly wrong but let me tell u what Dr. House told to the people world over, "EVERYBODY LIES". Your version might be true in a parallel universe where nobody lies and the racoon is the King of the Jungle.

Now that's that. Coming to the product, its fine. Seems to work as advertised. Thanks gotd and exeone :)

Reading the publisher's description, it appears that this is just a keylogger and screen recorder.

I have no use for that detail but I would like to have a log at a higher level of what I did all day. Specifically, a searchable, chronological event log of what apps were active, what files were changed (or opened, closed, created or deleted), and what URLs visited or files uploaded or downloaded (by any browser or web client). By active apps I mean apps in focus and experiencing interactive activity (mouse and/or keyboard), not just loaded.

I suspect that type of info would be useful to a lot of users. For example: to auto record when and what files were backed up to cloud storage; to help locate where project files were stored six months earlier: to help trouble shoot system problems by correlating system behavior with maintenance activities, app installations/removals, hardware changes, etc; to auto record what fixed drives were attached at boot up and what and when removable devices were accessed.

Just thinking out loud here. Looks like two basic categories: System config/mods and user activities.

Guys the word is TRUST. Surveillance, I believe, is a wrong step in parenting or even in offices. The tendency to hide things arises from the fact that the person is too uptight. Speak about things in the open and there will be lesser need for these kind of apps, since the inclination for secrets will be lesser. Children who aren't 'monitored' prosper better. Same is the case with employees. Employees do not need to be tracked, if they actually feel a part of the organisation.

Won't be installing this. Thanks anyway Gaotd.

Thank you for your comment, Karl.

I consider it as bad behavior to spy on other people - even on own kids (keep them save, but don't mistrust them).

Thank you for today's offer, GotD.

It reminds me to take care of my data and personal safety. The internet is the by far biggest data collecting machine. We don't have to be supportive and give away every single keystroke.

I have the Procrasti-Tracker running. http://strlen.com/procrastitracker/

The exe-file is just 240 kB, but the tool is powerful with storing information on websites I'm browsing or documents I'm working on. I trust these data will not be transmitted to anyone, but in fact I don't know for sure. At least a real person with an address stands behind this tool.

When I post process photos I get rather creative. Yes, I can save each step in the edit, but I do not bother... just forge ahead... and then I ask... How the H did I do that it looks great. If as #8 says this is a "key logger" records my steps, then that solves my problem of being able to reproduce my steps in processing photos. Well certainly worth a try.

@5 Giovanni

"Very useful app if you have kids at home, share your PC with other people or want to keep an eye on your employees to make sure they don’t spend too much time on Twitter or Facebook during working hours."

In some countries it is forbidden to use such a program without mentioning it to the persons, who uses the equipment.

Even if it is your own company, your own PC, your own building etc.

It says its monitoring as well as can record activities and if required can be sent to somebody through FTP. So isnt it invading the privacy in sensitive cases like online transaction. If anybody forgets the monitoring mode then each and every key types would be recorded.

Hello...

Is this stuff a "keylogger" ? Hence it is made to spy, NSA will certainly love it.

I'm against this sort of stuff.

Two reasons I'm not going to test today's download.

1) I live alone and am the only one who uses my computer
2) My concerns over the levels of security offered by this program.

In essence when you install this program you install spyware and I wonder if the information it provides can be intercepted by an outsider in some way.
Their website does say it is password protected but there is no further information regarding the security offered by this function.
For a number of people this will be a useful program but they should weigh up the dangers possibly created by installing it.

Many useful features especially in combination with Employee Monitor, which is not free..

I will keep use it, it's very good.

One suggestion: Add Arabic, there are Czech which covers 20 times less people..

I don't need a tool like this but after a short test it did its job pretty well.

Best feature is its ability to send all the recorded actions on your system to a FTP or to your E-mail account.

Very useful app if you have kids at home, share your PC with other people or want to keep an eye on your employees to make sure they don't spend too much time on Twitter or Facebook during working hours.

Addition:

The software does not run in stealth mode. You can see the PersonalMon.exe process in a taskmonitor and kill the task.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

A company without name and address : Exeone is software development company established in 2000 by different programming teams from several computer companies..

If you ever wanted to know, what your wife is doing, when you are at work, this is the software for you. Whether you want to record your work or keep your PC safe by watching out for someone else's actions, Personal Monitor is the solution for you.

I think we can forget the first proposal "record your work"...

This IS a keylogger, a hidden screen recorder, a process logger, which can sent the information in stealth mode over the network.

I have to admit, that I did not test these features, which need admission to the I-Net. I may be paranoid, but exactly this kind of software is never allowed on my PC to contact anybody outside 127.0.0.0.

If you succeed the installation without problems, than YOU have a problem with your security settings and your security software. Consider this as a first running test!

In my short test it did a good job. The interface is clear, the German translation not the best one and the statistical reports can be useful for whatever reasons.

If you really want to protect YOUR system against misuse of others, than it is better to create correct admission rights. If you would like to spy other people : DON'T DO IT!

In my short test does what it claims.

Uninstalled via reboot.
