This free tool claims to pull up user activity in terms of Internet use, files, and temporary files, but its puzzling user interface kept us from getting results.

At first glance, TotalRecall has a seemingly straightforward user interface, with a toolbar and command buttons across the top, and panels for displaying the records and links. But a closer look revealed confusing command buttons and descriptions. For example, the first button resembled a folder, but the button's description said "Easy work is over." Other button descriptions were just as confusing. We clicked through each button, and the only one that returned results was the recent opened documents button. It listed the file name, creation time, last access time, and link address. The Help feature that comes with the program is in the form of a PDF and we couldn't get it to open.

Thanks to its baffling user interface, we failed to get the program to work for us. Skip this tool and try one that makes it much clearer what the user should do and what to expect.
