If You Need to Know,
SpyBuddy will tell you
SpyBuddy 2012 is primarily computer monitoring software,
rather than web filtering software. It offers some filtering options,
based on keywords and a list of web sites, but it's not a full-fledged
web filtering solution. Instead, it helps you track your children's
online and offline activities. You can see what they are doing but
stopping them will be up to you. There are other programs that will allow you to block and filter better, but if you just
want to know what they are doing on the computer then this is the
program you need.
SpyBuddy is a powerful spy software and computer monitoring
product for monitoring spouses, children, co-workers, or just about
anyone else! With SpyBuddy, you can log and record both sides of
all chat and instant message conversations for all of the major
chat platforms. Wouldn't it be good to know whether they are chatting
or doing homework?

You can record and save all e-mail messages sent and
received from the PC you are monitoring. Works with ALL POP3 and
SMTP supported e-mail clients, such as Outlook, Outlook Express,
Eudora, and more! Then you can have the log emailed to you while
you are working so you know what the kids are doing on the computer
at all times.
SpyBuddy records all websites visited and takes screenshots
of them too. Another great feature is the recording of all changes
made to your hard drive and external media. SpyBuddy will record
all of the following:
Those features let you know if they have downloaded any files or
pictures and tried to hide them or delete them.

It doesn't get much simpler than that!
SpyBuddy is a very well rounded computer monitoring
program that we highly recommend if you want to log what is happening
on your computer.
