Editors' review

Put your mind at ease with this monitoring software, which has one of the least attractive user interfaces we've ever seen, but performs really well.

CheatMonitor KeyLogger's white-on-black interface is truly hideous, but it's easy to set intervals to take screenshots and set up how frequently e-mail reports are sent. We weren't happy that it displays the email password without the asterisks, though, even with the publisher's claim that this is so users don't type the information incorrectly. Nevertheless, the e-mail reports arrived on time and each one included the selected number of screenshots. The e-mail report doesn't include keystroke information, but you can view that information from the program's interface. CheatMonitor KeyLogger can be sent into hiding with one click, and it's just as easily brought back into view.

Aside from the unappealing interface, CheatMonitor Keylogger's only other drawback is the too-short 5-day trial period. Still, we were blown away by its reliability and thoroughness. We highly recommend this capable monitoring tool.

    "Waste of time"

    December 17, 2009   |   By zman6309

    Version: CheatMonitor KeyLogger 1

    Pros

    The program is quite thorough and not only keeps a record of keystrokes; but even records left and right mouse clicks. It will take screenshots at every interval assigned to it and is a very reliable detector.

    Cons

    It leaves trails and clues everywhere. Uninstall is a pain. After uninstalling from the programs menu I had to manually delete it from my registry because it was still there. This program is a very big headache and I don't recommend it at all.

    Summary

    Steer clear of this program. If you want a keylogger ot system spy programm that works well without the headaches...check out system surveillance pro (sspro). SSPRO works great without all the hassle. SSPRO only allows a 7 day trial, but it is very easy to hide and very reliably records the info you want...just remember to remove all the setup icons from the start menu and download file.

    "This is the BEST!!!!"

    September 24, 2009   |   By SmartWife

    Version: CheatMonitor KeyLogger 1

    Pros

    I love it, like the editor says: this software performs really well...
    I got all my reports and caught my hubby using ashleymadison and other dating sites.
    Without cheatmonitor I would never have known.

    Cons

    its a bit ugly, but it works great

    Summary

    Well worth the subscription fee of 39.95 my well deserved alimony payments will cover that 1000x over

    "This software is a piece of crap!"

    May 08, 2009   |   By tickedoffwife

    Version: CheatMonitor KeyLogger 1

    Pros

    None really!

    Cons

    No online or telephone customer support! Just email which doesn't get answered in a timely manner. You could wait for days!

    Summary

    I purchased and downloaded this software on my computer. From the very beginning it did not work properly. It was set up correctly but only would send intermittent emails every so often eventhough it was set to send every 2 minutes. Also, it would not pull up using the input code and would not run on a continuous basis. There is no customer support online or by telephone and you are at their email mercy! The code for uninstall does not work making it very hard to uninstall. I went with this software because of the reviews on this site but now am extremely unhappy with my decision. It really is sub-par and for anyone out there looking for this type of software, please spend the extra money and upgrade to a better product that provides technical support. This product really isn't worth the hassle or the $40 bucks that it cost!

    "Easy to use...hard to get rid of!"

    January 05, 2009   |   By CableMiss

    Version: CheatMonitor KeyLogger 1

    Pros

    Yes, slick interface, very easy to use, easy to navigate... BUT...

    Cons

    VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND AND UNINSTALL-- I actually had to buy another program to successfully delete it.

    Summary

    I immediately felt bad as soon as I downloaded it, and tried to find an uninstall option--NOWHERE to be found!!!! Checked the "info" section on the program, NONE of the questions addressed how to delete the program... checked the manufacturer's website... NO FAQ's on how to uninstall (actually, it brings up the FAQ from the program itself and was NO help at all). I ran Ad-Aware and thought I had found it/deleted it, so I restarted the computer to have the Cheat Monitor trial window pop up asking me if I wanted to try it and/or buy it!!!!

    Now being that I'm just a bit computer savvy (but was having difficulty w/ this program) and I didn't want my family to see my regretful mistake of mistrust, I bought another spyware detection program that (hopefully) finally did away with C.M. $29.99 seemed like a small price to pay at the time for my 3 hours lost trying to uninstall, and the real issue which is TRUST.

    "Works great. So easy to use. Hides and password protected."

    August 15, 2008   |   By timmyphalom

    Version: CheatMonitor KeyLogger 1

    Pros

    I like that this keylogger and screenshot tool is really easy to use.

    I started it up, put in my email address and hid it.

    You'd have to be pretty slow not to understand how it works.

    Once hidden, it sent the screen shots to my email as well the keylogger reports. Don't know how the CNET reviewer missed the keylogger reports in their email but I got mine. It's right at the bottom of the email. Guess when you're paid to do a job, you just don't care to double check everything.

    Everything is laid out well. There's only four buttons and a few settings and it's ready to go.

    I actually like the black and white design as oppose to the CNET reviewer. Too many designers choose wild colors and this is easy to read.

    But I agree with them that you can use it to put your mind at ease.

    I haven't found evidence that she's cheating but that's even better. Now I can stop worrying. I think I'm going to use it as a parental monitoring system now. My daughter is 14 and she's on Facebook alot. I've read there are alot of pedophiles there and I think it'll help me protect my daughter.

    Better safe than sorry as they say.

    Cons

    I agree with the CNET reviewer that the trial is too short. 5 days can go by quick but I was happy with the trial so I bought it so what does that say. At least the trial is there I suppose. Some companies don't even give you that.

    Pros

    The editor was wrong on two counts

    1) The black interface is slick as hell! (like winamp!!!)

    2) the logged keys are sent ina really wicked cool html report along with the screencaps, this product is the best!

    Cons

    There is nothing not to like!!! Thank you cheatmonitor, well worth the price to keep my family safe

    "Really Solid Keylogger (easy to use!)"

    July 22, 2008   |   By CherMarie99z

    Version: CheatMonitor KeyLogger 1

    Pros

    I really like this keylogger & system monitor...It's easy to install and use. IT doesn't have a lot of superfluous bells and whistles, so its rock solid IMO. Gets 'er done!

    Cons

    Nothing not to like, it totally does everything I need...I use it to monitor the kids as well as the wifey...so far, pure piece of mind.
