Protecting data and personal information can sometimes go beyond installing some antivirus software because, as good as it may be, it will not help in case you leave your PC unattended and someone else uses it without you knowing of it.
Also, in case there are several users on the same workstations, some similar issues may occur because the human factor is related to unpredictability, therefore it is hard to foretell what someone will do in one situation or another.
Nonetheless, there are some solutions you can use to check what someone did whole using your computer, so in case something ends up broken or missing, you'll know what happened. Such tools are not among the favorites of many users, nor for most security applications who deem them as dangerous or malicious.
Ultimate Keylogger Free Edition falls into this family, but its usefulness can only be judged after trying it, which can be done inside a virtual or sandboxed protected environment if you have any concerns about such utilities.
This software comes with a set of basic features that you can configure from the friendly interface. The monitoring options provided by Ultimate Keylogger Free Edition include application logging, desktop screenshots at a predetermined time interval, capturing all keystrokes, text copy and paste actions, as well as keeping track of visited websites.
A neat feature of this tool is the ability to display a warning message after a specific amount of time passes, so the user is advised to remain on the right track and not stray on forbidden websites, for example.
It is also possible to protect the program itself, so if someone tries to close or remove it without your permission, the password protection feature will make this impossible. Checking out the reports can be done with one click, as the on-board Internet browser is used to view the data.
On the whole, Ultimate Keylogger Free Edition does a pretty good job, but has a rather limited set of features which makes it useful only for basic monitoring tasks.
