Spector Pro - Powerful Internet Monitoring and PC Surveillance Software

The Gold Standard in Internet Monitoring and Surveillance Software

Spector Pro is the world’s best selling software for monitoring and recording every detail of PC and Internet activity – in your home or in your office. Selected as the Editors’ Choice by the experts at PC Magazine, Spector Pro records every detail of what they do on the computer – their chats, instant messages, emails, the web sites they visit, what they search for, what they do on MySpace, the pictures they post and look at, the keystrokes they type, the programs they run and much more. And because of its advanced surveillance screen snapshot features, you get to see not only WHAT they do, but the EXACT order in which they do it, step by step. With Spector Pro, you will never doubt who is doing what on the computer.

Advanced Warning System

In addition to monitoring and recording, Spector Pro has an advanced warning system that will inform you when a PC being monitored has been used in an inappropriate manner. Through the use of keywords and phrases that you specify, Spector Pro will be "on alert", emailing you an immediate and detailed report of when, where and how a keyword was used - every time it is typed or appears on the PC, on a web site, in a chat/instant message or in an email. Alerts are sent to your office, home, cell phone or wherever you want.

Combine Email Recording, Chat/IM Recording, Web Site Recording, Keystroke Recording and visual Snapshot Recording with INTELLIGENT & INSTANT Notification when content you specify is encountered, and you have the most POWERFUL Monitoring and Surveillance software you can buy anywhere!

Spector Pro - PC Magazine Editors ChoiceAwarded PC Magazine Editors' Choice

Spector Pro has been awarded PC Magazine Editors' Choice TWICE as the best Internet monitoring software for recording computer activity. PC Magazine reviewers stated, "Spector Pro offers the most powerful and complete assortment of monitoring and reporting tools."

Screen Snapshots

Advanced surveillance screen snapshot recording allows you to see not only what your children and employees do on the PC and Internet, but the EXACT order in which they do it, step by step.

How do Screen Snapshots Work?

To give you a clear picture of what your child or employee is doing on the computer, Spector Pro continually takes snapshots of whatever is on the computer screen. These snapshots can be taken as frequently as once a second, or they may be taken based on user activity, such as mouse clicks, page scrolling, new web page visits, or the opening of new programs. This gives you an extremely accurate and visual view of what the person you are monitoring has been doing on the computer. Reviewing the recordings is simple with easy to use VCR-like controls. Move forward one screen at a time to see step by step what they were doing on the computer, or click “PLAY” and the snapshots play back like a video recording. Skip ahead, instantly rewind, jump to a specific date and time or even print individual snapshots.

What will you be able to see?

See every web site they visit, but more importantly, you will see EXACTLY what they do on each web site. You will see what they are reading on the web site as well as the pictures they are viewing on that web site and you will be able to see how much time they spend on that web site.

  • See their emails, including web-based emails like Hotmail, AOL email, Gmail, Yahoo mail and hundreds of others.

  • See their chats and instant messages as they are being typed. (Spector Pro also saves the entire chat conversation and all instant messages for later review.)

  • See the programs they run and what they type into those applications, such as in word processors, spreadsheets, databases, presentations, games, etc.

  • See what they are searching for on Google, AOL, Yahoo, MSN and any other sites.

  • See what they are shopping for on sites like eBay, Amazon and any other sites.

  • See everything they are doing on MySpace, and find out if they are posting pictures of themselves, or providing their telephone number or address where strangers can gain access.
    With the Screen Snapshot recorder, you will never doubt who is doing what on the computer because you will have the surveillance tape recordings to prove it.

Chat/Instant Messaging Recording

With the Chat Recorder built into Spector Professional Edition, chats and instant messages are automatically recorded and saved for your later review. You simply click on the Chat button, and you will see a list of chat conversations.

Chat/Instant Message Recording captures popular chat and instant messaging services and provides you with a clear record of all conversations that have taken place. Both sides of chat conversations and instant messages are gathered and saved chronologically for your review.

Spector Pro is designed to record both sides of a conversation in AOL chat rooms, AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, MSN Messenger and Yahoo Messenger.

• Records AOL Chat Rooms
• Records AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)
• Records MSN Instant Messenger
• Records ICQ
• Records Yahoo Messenger
• Records Skype Chat
• Print Chat/IM Transcripts

Keystroke Recording

Spector Pro includes what many consider to be the BEST key logger on the market, saving keystrokes by application, by date and time.

With Spector Pro, you will know what was typed, where and when it was typed, and you will also know WHO typed it because Spector Pro keeps a record of who is logged into the computer.

The Spector Pro Keystroke Recording tool will document every key typed on the PC keyboard. Spector Pro not only captures standard alphanumeric keystrokes, but also records "hidden" characters and keystroke combinations, such as the Shift and Ctrl key, as well as “true” keystrokes which may other-wise appear differently on screen (such as an * when a password is typed).

Keystroke recordings are organized chronologically by Application and by Window allowing you to easily differentiate between what is typed in a word processing document, email, spreadsheet, or Internet browser (even passwords). If you are concerned about your child providing phone numbers and addresses to strangers online, then use Spector Pro’s search function to locate keystrokes typed and jump to recorded screen images in Screen Snapshots.

• Records ALL Typed Keystrokes
• Records Hidden Characters and True Keystrokes
• Data Stored Chronologically by Application and by Window
• Print Transcript of Keystrokes

NEW! MySpace Activity

MySpace is the most popular site for teenagers to hang out on the Internet.

Kids use MySpace primarily to connect with other kids. They post information about themselves, place their picture on MySpace for others to see, invite other people to become their “friends” and spend a lot of time chatting with others and viewing the profiles of other users. Sometimes, they meet people in person through contacts they make in MySpace.

Unfortunately, the information they post about themselves is readily available to almost anyone else using MySpace, and that includes millions of adults of all ages, thousands of whom are sexual predators trying to prey on young people.

Parents tell us every day of their great concern about the dangers posed by MySpace to their children, and there are stories in the press almost daily about adults soliciting and meeting children they found on MySpace.

How Does Spector Pro Help?
Spector Pro records your child’s MySpace activity so you will know exactly what he/she is doing while on MySpace. You will see when they update their profile, post pictures, make comments about other MySpace users, send messages to other MySpace users, invite someone to be a friend, accept an invitation from a new friend, and much more.

You will also be able to see whether they have created multiple MySpace accounts.

You can also view the profiles of people who are contacting your child. So, you’ll know if your 13 year old is communicating with a 40 year old who has posted inappropriate pictures of himself or talks about using drugs on his profile page.

Anything your child does on MySpace, Spector Pro will record and you will be able to review.

Web Sites Visited

The Web Site Recording tool continually monitors every web page that is accessed on the computer and saves a record of the URLs chronologically for your review. Spector Pro is much more sophisticated than the History feature of your web browser, providing you with important details including: Time of Last Visit, Duration of Time on the Web Site, Active Time on Web Site, Total Number of Visits to the Web Site and more!

Additionally, you can quickly highlight any recorded Domain Name or URL and choose to block future access – or – take preventative action and create your own list of web sites to block.

With Spector Pro’s advanced and intuitive Web Site recording, you will get a quick yet exact picture of each individuals web surfing.

• Record Domain Names and Specific URLs visited
• Block future access to URLs with a single click
• View Time of Visit to Web Site
• View Total Duration of Visit to Web Site
• View Active Time on Web Site
• View Total Number of Visits to Web Site
• Summary Reporting of Overall Web Usage
• Detailed Usage Reporting to drill down on specific Web Site Activity
• View a Top 10 Activity Report

Top 10 Summary Reports

Spector Pro is the worldwide recognized leader in providing detailed information about what your child or employee is doing on the PC and on the Internet.

But, sometimes, you don’t want or need to see every detail. You just want a summary. The Top 10 Summary Report allows you to see days or weeks of recordings at a glance.

You’ll be able to see which web sites your child or employee is spending the most time on. If you see that your son is spending 4 hours a day on a gaming site and not getting his homework done, you can easily block him from accessing that site with one simple click of the mouse. You’ll also be able to see a list of the people your child is chatting with the most. Is your daughter chatting every day with someone you’ve never heard of? Click and find out the content of these conversations.

Top 10 shows who they are emailing the most and who is sending them the most email. It also shows you which programs they are using the most. Top 10 also shows you what they’re searching for on Google, AOL, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines.

You can see a summary of any Top 10 activity for the past day, past week or past month.

Email Activity

With Spector Pro, a copy of every email sent or received with ANY email program is automatically saved to a hidden location.

Even when they delete their email, Spector Pro will keep a copy for you to review.

To review the email recordings, simply click on the Email Activity tab and Spector Pro will list all of the incoming and outgoing emails. See whether the email was sent or received, who sent it, who received it, the subject of the email, and the time and date the email was sent or received.

With a click of a button, all emails can be viewed by Sender, Recipient, Subject and Time/Date. Click on a specific email, and you will see
the contents of the email. With Spector Pro, you even
have the option of recording email attachments.

It’s easy to look at all the emails received on a particular date or all the emails sent to or received from a particular person, all with one or two clicks.

Spector Pro records Outlook email (Earthlink, Mindspring, MSN...) and will capture AOL email. In addition, Spector Pro is the ONLY program available that will capture Internet-based email services such as AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and MySpace.

• Records SMTP/POP3 Email (Sent & Received)
• Records MS Exchange Email
• Records Hotmail Email
• Records Yahoo Email
• Records AOL Internet Email
• Records Gmail
• Records MySpace Messages
• Records proprietary AOL Email (v6.0, 7.0 and 8.0)
• View/Open File Attachments

Program Activity

Spector Pro provides the ability to record every program (or application) run on the computer you are monitoring. For each program, Spector Pro will capture the name of the person who used the program, when the program was started and how long the program was running. In addition, Spector Pro will provide even more useful information, such as how much time the program was ACTIVELY used. Were your kids playing games all afternoon instead of doing homework?  Was a program simply opened and left on-screen, an indication someone might be trying to deceive you into thinking they were working all day in Word and Excel (when they were really surfing the web)?
With Spector Pro, you will know, because Spector Pro keeps track of other information, such as keystrokes typed and mouse movements, to help determine whether a program is being actively used. Spector Pro also shows you EXACTLY how many keystrokes have been typed in each application. If your secretary typed only 80 keystrokes in Word or Excel all day, what are the chances she was doing much work? Of course, with Spector Pro's other recording features, like Screen Snapshots, you won't have to guess.
Program Activity allows you to see at a glance ALL of the applications that have been used each day. If someone downloads a new program that starts affecting the performance of your computer, you'll be able to quickly see the new program in
Spector Pro.

Keyword Detection

One of the most powerful features of Spector Pro is its advanced Keyword Detection and Notification. Create a list of "on alert" words or phrases and Spector Pro will continually monitor keyboard typing, URLs, web pages, incoming and outgoing emails, chat conversations and instant messages for these offending words or phrases.

When a keyword or phrase is detected, Spector Pro immediately jumps into overdrive. Snapshot frequency is automatically increased to ensure that every detail of the offender’s actions are recorded. Additionally, Spector Pro collects information regarding the offense and sends you an instant keyword alert via email.

Each keyword alert contains the following information:

1. The keyword that was detected
2. The time the keyword was detected
3. The current user logged in to Windows
4. Additional detailed information (Example: the URL where the keyword was found)

You tell Spector Pro which words and phrases to watch out for - for example, "sex," "phone number," "where do you live," "are your parents home," "is your wife sleeping," "I hate my boss" - whatever YOU decide to include. You also tell Spector Pro where to send the INSTANT ALERTS (you specify your email address).

Then, when the person using the computer TYPES in one of these words or phrases, or when they are chatting and one of these words comes up, or when they are sending or receiving an email with one of these words or phrases, Spector Pro takes IMMEDIATE action and sends you an email letting you know exactly what is happening so you can take action.

• Quickly Define Keywords/Phrases to Monitor
• Instant Email Notification Upon Detection of Keyword/Phrase
• Works In Conjunction With Email, Web Site, Chat/IM, Keystroke and Snapshot Recording Tools
• Increased Snapshot Frequency Upon Keyword Detection

Additional Features

Files Transferred

Spector Pro will capture files downloaded via the Internet. Illegal software downloads, pornographic pictures or video, music files, online gambling software and more are automatically recorded. Files uploaded to web sites like MySpace and YouTube including personal pictures, videos and music are recorded by Spector Pro. You’ll be able to tell if your children are posting pictures of themselves on MySpace or on other public web sites.

User Activity

The User Activity chart in Spector Pro allows you to view computer usage by day, week or month for each person using the computer. See if they are actively using the computer or not.

Document Tracking

Are sensitive documents being hidden or moved? Spector Pro includes a Document Tracking feature which allows you to determine whether files/documents are being saved to removable media such as floppy, Zip, CD, DVD or USB storage devices and memory sticks. The Document Tracking feature also allows you to track documents that are printed and who is copying or printing potentially sensitive files or documents.

Internet Access Blocking

Parents and employers, upon seeing the kinds of places and things their kids and employees are getting into on the ever growing Internet, have asked us to provide them with ways to help restrict Internet access. With Spector Pro, you can now block specific web sites from being accessed, or you can block specific Internet applications like AOL Instant Messenger from being accessed. You can even block AOL from being accessed altogether. You can do this by day of week and/or by time of week. You can begin to see the powerful possibilities.

Flexible Recording Options

Spector Pro can be set to record on a schedule. Most people will want Spector to record at all times. However, there may be certain times of day, or certain days of the week where you do not want Spector to record.

For example, you use the computer at certain times of the day and you do not want your own activities recorded. Or, you are an employer and you want to allow your employees to use the computer during lunch breaks or after work and not record their activity during these times.

Scheduling allows you the flexibility to pre-determine what is recorded and when recording takes place. Set recording schedules by day of the week, time of day or Windows application being used.

Record By User ID

Record ALL users or narrow your focus to a specific user or group of users. Spector Pro allows you to identify specific Windows User Login IDs (for Windows NT, 2000 or XP) so that whenever they are using the PC, their actions are being recorded. Combined with the Scheduling feature, you can record ANY user, ANYWHERE on your network, ANYTIME of the day or week.

Keep Spector Hidden From Everyone Except You

Spector Pro offers three levels of security that protect the program and recorded data from being altered or tampered with.

Security features include: Stealth Mode, Hot Key Access and Password Protection.

Stealth Mode

• Stealth technology ensures that Spector Pro is completely hidden from everyone except those with authorized access. It will not appear in the Windows System Tray, Desktop, Task Manager or Add/Remove Programs Menu.

Hot Key Access

• Your recordings are protected by a combination of Hot Keys that you choose. Spector Pro can only be accessed through your defined Hot Key combination.

Password Protection

• As an added measure of security, Spector Pro will prompt you for a password before opening the PC recording files. This ensures that anyone attempting to access the recordings is an authorized user.

Using Spector on a Network

Spector Corporate Network Edition has a flexible data recording and retrieval structure which makes it an excellent tool for use over a corporate or small business network.

Simply install Spector on the networked PCs you wish to monitor. When you are ready to review the recordings, launch the Spector viewer from any PC. Next, select the specific PC that has been recorded on your network. Spector will automatically retrieve the recording data and load it into your Spector viewer.
