Advanced Spy

CNET Editors' review

Advanced Spy is a monitoring tool that is supposed to track PC activities, but instead a log-in glitch put us in an unwelcome and unproductive cycle that forced us to uninstall the program.

The program places an icon on your desktop. Clicking it reveals a very straightforward interface with four menu options across the top: Start, Options, Hide Now, and Help. There are also Internet and PC Activity options. When we clicked Start, a prompt asked us to create a password. When we clicked Start after that, the program denied us access. We tried to change our password, but in order to do that, we had to stop the program, which in turn, required our password. We couldn't even exit the program because doing so required a password. Talk about a catch-22. Eventually, we had to uninstall the program.

Advanced Spy also comes with a sorry seven-day trial. That's not enough time for testing, but since we couldn't even get past the password stage, it was plenty of time to figure out that this program doesn't work.
