While this easy-to-use freeware does a nice job of logging computer activity, it only will be able to stop the youngest of tykes. KidLogger has a basic interface with minimal options that only allow you to open logged files or disable the program. The program will record accessed applications, documents, and files, and it also will log keystrokes and typed URLs. But unlike some full-fledged monitoring suites, it can't actually block certain programs or Web pages. In our tests, the program worked fine, but alas it can't be password-protected. Therefore, we were easily able to unistall it via the Start menu, and we suspect many savvier kids would do the same thing. If you have very young children but not much cash, KidLogger might suffice, but most parents will desire a more secure solution.
