This question is more to be sure that XPCspy is safe to use as described on their web site. I require a keylogger to log instant messenger messages and where they are browsing, I am worried about the kids and what they are up too. As this is a powerful little piece of software and is very stealthy I want to check with the experts.

This seems to be the best software I have seen, BUT I am unsure and wanted to check with experts. I am trying to avoid getting in too deep and having problems later.

Thanks, Steve

If it's on your own machine, for your own use, thats one thing. But be advised that virtually every reliable antimalware tool sees it as spyware and will cause considerable conflicts and try and remove it. Are the headaches of working around it worth it? Only you know the answer to that.

Be (malware removal conflict) Safe

If it causes these problems, is their something else that I can use in it's place. I do not wish to restrict access for any of the kids, I just want to check up on them. This has all come about after watching the NBC Dateline program on Internet Predators. Just want to be safe.

Thanks Steve
