Editors' Review


AceSpy from Retina-X Studios monitors and logs PC activity, including keystrokes, email, screenshots, and browsing. You can schedule monitoring, block and filter content, and customize logging, reporting, and alerts. AceSpy can track some user accounts while excluding others. Its user interface is a bit busy, but everything you need is right there. You can try AceSpy free for 7 days.


Extensive monitoring: AceSpy monitors and logs running programs, open windows, keystrokes, system activities, printing, chats, emails, websites, and social networking. It takes screenshots, captures online video from sites such as YouTube, monitors the Clipboard, and more.

Quick Wizard: AceSpy's Quick Wizard walks new users through an easy four-step setup process (Password, Loggings, Settings, Finished) that can be changed and fine-tuned later.

Default hot keys: Once AceSpy is installed and running, the primary user accesses the main interface and logs by pressing a hot key combo that is easy to remember but hard to trigger accidentally.

Stealthy and secure: AceSpy can hide Windows system utilities that could be used to disable or remove it, including Registry Editor and System Configuration.


Busy interface: Though it groups features and activities logically, AceSpy's Central Control Panel is a bit visually overwhelming at first.

Complex: AceSpy's extensive filtering and configuration options might overwhelm some users, but even experienced users may find it takes time to set everything up properly.

Bottom Line

AceSpy monitors practically everything most users need or want to log on to their computers. While it's not cheap and requires some prep, once it's set up, it's actually easy to use. If you want to keep an eye on your kids, your employees, or yourself, AceSpy seems up to the mission.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of AceSpy 6.5.

    "don't buy this software, it will probably be useless"

    July 30, 2013   |   By mad_at_retina_x

    Version: AceSpy 6.5


    quick email support


    software wont monitor any user unless you install it on their account


    unlike other security monitoring software that I have purchased this package will not let you monitor any account unless you log into that account and install it. I don't want to alert my children that I am installing software on their accounts so there is no way that I can use this software. When I complained to the publisher they refused to provide a refund. Don't buy this.
