HT Employee Monitor is an application with a lot of uses like monitoring the activities of your work computers or even your home PC if you are sharing with others, especially children. The application has a trial version of 14 days with no limitations.
Installation & Requirements
The setup for the application should complete very fast. You will be offered the option to create desktop and start menu shortcuts. The supported operating systems are Windows XP, 7 and 8 as well as Windows Server 2003.
Starting the application will initiate the monitoring processes automatically. There are various aspects of your computer that the application can monitor and you can set them all up individually. Furthermore, closing the application will completely hide it and you can open it again either by pressing Shift + Ctrl + Alt + Z or by pressing the Windows key + R, typing monitor and hitting enter. Of course, you might want to delete the desktop and start menu shortcuts if you want to hide it completely from anyone but yourself.
The application’s various utilities can be accessed either from the main interface widow or from the menus on the top of the program. Each utility has its own tab that you can configure individually. The reports are generated in real time and you can even set them up to store themselves at specific time intervals. You can even set automatic e-mails to your account or configure the remote management. You can then install the application on several computers and monitor them from your own.
The good thing about the application is that it does not simply monitor the activities in a computer but it can also control and limit the computer and internet usage. By going to the control panel you can configure a list of banned websites or use one of the predefined categories like gambling, shopping and social media sites. Furthermore, all of the restrictions and the monitoring can be configured for specific accounts. For example, you might simply want to monitor the guest activity in your computer if you have to share it with people.
Finally, the program can be used to secure your Windows. You can restrict access to vital parts of the operating system, ban applications from being opened and restrict the network usage for certain users. Those features combined with the fact that you can set up a master password will protect your PC against noisy intruders or slacking employees.
