Ease of Use
No files are copied to your Windows or system folders during installation. This is a timesaver for many people and ensures complete safety of the program. To install the program, simply download the file, double click the installation file and follow the on screen instructions. The process is very simple.
The program works in the background to track time spent in various programs, the internet, and more. It works as an effective project management and productivity control program to ensure employees are working on their assignments as instructed. In a personal setting, it works great to monitor the time children spend on the computer, and to control what they can use.
This screen shot, from Nueber, shows the "History and intensity of program usage" which is an ideal report to monitor for projects.
Though the computer does monitor in the background, privacy is still maintained because no keystrokes or passwords are recorded.
The newest version, 1.4, is compatible up to Windows XP as is. If the program is needed for Windows Vista, an additional file, Microsoft WinHlp32 is needed. 3MB of free disk space is required to run the program. If there are any problems with the program, you can email or write customer support.
