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.
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.

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."
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
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.

BEST key logger on the market, saving keystrokes by application,
by date and time.

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 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

appear differently on screen (such as an * when a password is

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
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.

get a quick yet exact picture of each individuals web surfing.

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.
With Spector Pro, a copy of every email sent or
received with ANY email program is automatically saved to a hidden
Even when they delete their email, Spector Pro will keep a copy
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)

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
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
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)
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.

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

pictures of themselves on MySpace or on other public web sites.

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
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
