Internet Monitoring Software for Parents: Protect Your Child Online

November 24th, 2010

With no doubt, the Internet has become a popular mean to socialize allowing us to communicate easily with other people all over the world. That’s why, social networking websites and chat rooms are a favorite pastime for both adults and kids today. While such places help to find a lot of new friends online, they can be very dangerous for vulnerable and credulous children. Generally, chat rooms and various social networking sites like MySpace or Facebook have one common characteristic – they allow to exchange messages with a large number of people anonymously. Do you know who your child is sending messages to? How can you be sure that Internet cheaters are not talking with your child on MySpace or Facebook?

If you are concerned about your children Internet safety, you need to be aware of what they are doing online. Actually, you can use different website blockers designed to keep kids away from visiting inappropriate websites, but with the help of Internet monitoring software for parents such as SoftActivity Keylogger you will have full control you need to protect your child on the Web.

SoftActivity Keylogger will provide you with detailed insight into your child’s online behavior. Our powerful Internet monitoring software for parents is designed to record everything your kids are doing on their computer: chat sessions, email activity, website visits history, keystrokes typed and much more. You can even find out what they are doing on Facebook/MySpace and other social networking sites!

Frankly speaking, when parents try to control child’s Internet activities, most kids take it negatively and call spying. But when it comes to our children safety, everything changes. The less you know the less chances you have to protect your child online. Our Internet monitoring software for parents allows you to provide your children with some independence and privacy as it works completely invisibly on the background of your computer so they continue doing what they normally do when thinking you can’t trace them.

If you are wondering how to protect your child online and want to have the peace of mind of knowing exactly, where he / she is surfing online, take advantage of our advanced Internet monitoring software for parents.

Add exclusions in Avira AntiVir Personal

November 18th, 2010

Avira AntiVir Antivirus may detect Activity Monitor employee monitoring software on the manager’s PC and Agent installed on monitored computers as Potentially Unwanted Program(PUP) threat. In fact, there is no virus in Activity Monitor software. It only does what is declared in its features on the website, i.e. records your employees computer activity.

To prevent Avira AntiVir from detecting this threat you will need to exclude these folders from scans in the antivirus:

C:\Windows\sysnchrb folder on the monitored PC, where Activity Monitor Agent software is installed.

C:\Program Files\SoftActivity\Activity Monitor folder on the manager PC(server), where Activity Monitor admin console is installed. (for 64bit version of Windows you need to exclude C:\Program Files (x86)\SoftActivity\Activity Monitor folder)

This instructions apply only for version 7 or newer of Activity Monitor. Upgrade to the latest version

Please note that you should configure Avira AntiVir exclusions before the monitoring program installation.

For more detailed instructions please read this article that describes adding exclusions in Avira for our other product SoftActivity Keylogger. For Activity Monitor software you need to exclude the folders listed above instead of the folders mentioned in the article.
