    Where can I get a program like this?

    Hello,

    I am looking for a program that will allow my to monitor what people are doing at work? Such as: What websites they have visited, and what programs they have opened.

    Thank You For Your Help,
    Matt

    If you are talking about internet surf monitoring, then you could get a packet sniffer, and watch all packets going back and forth. To find out EVERYTHING someone is doing, you can install a webcam behind them, just keep it hidden.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    I believe VNC does that. Have you told the people you're going to be watching that you are planning to use such software. Invasion of privacy springs into my head.

    Be careful and consult your legal department. Spying on employees without their knowledge is illegal in some countries.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    That is true. It is usually required that you post a disclaimer at login that states that their activity is being monitored and the terms of use. Like... no surfing for porn (of course better phrased than that)... or whatever.

    you may want to look into a program called alteris... they had it at my highschool, and it lets you see a lot of screens at once, and even control one at a time, but the user will generally know when you are controlling their computer due to a flashing green light on the taskbar. it can be shut down, but that requires a special process viewer program on computers running 95/98/ME

    The main goal of this program is to find out what people are opening as there e-mail. So I will be able to find out if it was infected with a virus. The employees will know that this program is running on the computer. But I don't want them to be able to shut it off.

    Thank You,
    Matt

    For general web monitoring / IP sharing I use Wingate / GateKeeper.

    Works OK. Gives current location and total downloads.

    Will not stop a 'muppet' opening a virus though.

    Load anti-virus software on their machines and set the software to update itself automatically from the net. For added security, have all incoming traffic routed through a firewall with virus detection/quarantineing facilities. No need to snoop, illegal in many places as has been said already, and in any case demoralising to staff to think they are being spied on.
