Have you ever wondered if other people might have been using your computer while you are away? Worry no more. History Viewer from Digital Forensics Studio is a free application that details a computer's specific usage. It will provide such information as programs used, visited Web sites, files opened, as well as searches that have been done on the machine.
The software has a simple but easily understandable interface. The left-most pane lets the user pick what history they want to view under the browser used: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox. They can also choose to view Windows-related usage from this same pane. Double-clicking on the item will allow the user to view what content was accessed. The list generated by the viewer can also be exported as a separate report.
In these times of identity theft and other online security hazards, History Viewer is a handy tool that can help prevent the unauthorized use of a computing device. Simply knowing that a machine has the software installed could already act as a deterrent. The application installs and uninstalls cleanly.
