Editors' review

This unpolished utility for monitoring children s PC activities tool falls far short of its many competitors. Most snooping programs actively monitor Web sites visited, applications used, keystrokes typed, and IM chats in real time, then send you reports or let you view logs. All ParentSnooper really does is let you view information that you could otherwise find by simply browsing your PC or the Web. For instance, if you want to check out what Web sites your kids have been on, the program simply takes you to your local machine s cache of stored temporary files. You can search for recently opened documents or scour your entire machine for certain types of files or keywords, but you can easily do the same thing via Windows. To make matter worse, in some tests, the program crashed when we tried to search on a specific file type. ParentSnooper s interface is an unattractive, cluttered, unorganized mess that will leave even savvy users scratching their heads, so we can t even recommend it to unseasoned folks who can't figure out how to perform this program's jobs in alternate manners. So in the end, we d steer concerned parents to a more powerful and better designed utility.
