As its name implies, AllInOne Keylogger is a free Windows program that records a user's keypresses, preferably without their knowledge. While this tracking tool's user interface design leaves much to be desired, it worked very well to keep a log of Web, chat, and textual activity on our PC. Unfortunately, it comes with an extremely brief trial period.
AllInOne Keylogger's user interface isn't anything to get excited about. The Control Panel lists all of the configuration options, with the details for each option displayed in a large panel. The panel display was extremely cluttered, but we were able to navigate it after spending some time getting acclimated. The program requires you to create and enter a master password than can be used to activate the program. All you have to do is type the password on your desktop or any document, and the program appears. It offers a few features that aim to hide the program, such as hiding the taskbar icon, deleting the Help file, and removing any Start menu icons and the uninstall list. As soon as we clicked the Start Logging command, the program went to work, stealthily recording any activity on our PC. Once stopped, we were able to view all of the logs individually by date, with each entry providing the user responsible for the action, the time stamp, and the active window.
The program does include a Help manual, as well as a Support feature that takes you to the publisher's Web site. We were disappointed to find that AllInOne only offers a 7-day trial, which is brief considering its hefty price tag. Still, its good performance makes it a worthy tracking program for all user levels.
