History Viewer

Investigate PC usage via this app.

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.
