Editors' review

A PC-monitoring spy, PC eGuardian lets you keep a watchful eye on your kid's computer activity, but its unstructured output mars its performance. The program-s functional, password-protected interface operates in stealth mode and is easy to maneuver. It monitors activities such as launched programs, visited URLs, and keyloggers. You'll find options to block by keywords and to filter specific applications and users to monitor. The program effectively records chat conversations added to the application filter list. All captured data is shown on the program's main window and is also accessible via an HTML log file, both of which could use some organizational aid. Rather than filtering the data into specific areas, the program lists everything together, leaving you to sort through the mess. Its Web-blocking feature failed to work and generated error messages each time we attempted to store URLs. You won't find a scheduler or a screenshot capturer here either, features common to other proficient monitoring tools. You're only given seven days to check it out, and with its missing features and flawed performance, you'll want to look elsewhere.
