CNET Editors' review
Family Cyber Alert takes the uncertainty out of the question, "What's my kid been doing online?" This app does far more than record every keystroke made, and it does it well.
Including the keystroke log, the program offers a full array of monitoring functions. All applications are under Family Cyber Alert's watchful eye, including separate logs for sent e-mails, chat participation, and Web sites visited. It also takes screencaps regularly, forwards you copies of any e-mails sent, and incorporates blocking software to block programs as well as specific Web sites. There's even a customizable automatic keyword "danger" alert and a networking feature to monitor remote machines. All this control isn't arbitrary, though; it allows the Administrator to set specific users outside of its purview and observe the rest.
Family Cyber Alert doesn't show up in the start menu or control panel, so uninstalling the program must be done from the command line. However, to do so you must close it, and that requires the password, so the app is virtually tamperproof. If you need to keep a watchful eye over how your computer gets used, whether for a child or an employee, Family Cyber Alert tells you all.

"Need some response urgently"
Version: Family Cyber Alert 5.05
Can't think of anything good to say at this point.
No key code even though paid for in full
Bought this software through Cnet, paid for it in full on itcompany.com website and never received my key code. Tried emailing the only two address's available - support & info, no response. Tried the support form - nothing. What a rip! Bit like a Nigerian scam! Will have to see if I can pursue them through Visa.
