My daughter is very PC savy so I needed something that was undetectable by spy sweepers such as Adaware and Spybot. I purchased eBlaster from www.spectorsoft.com for $99 and have been very happy with it. It emails an html report to me each evening (I set the time). The report includes all internet sites visited, both sides of all im chats (MSN, ICQ, AIM, etc), captures keystrokes (good for getting passwords to sites they access). Lists all files downloaded, etc. You can even set it to send you a copy of all email they send/receive in real-time to whatever address you like. I know this may sound excessive, and I don't spend every night examining the reports. But I do scan through them about once a week looking for anything suspicious. Probably one of the best things you can do is be honest and talk with your children about the internet. My 15 year old has stumbled across some hard-core porn before, but was aware that this may happen. There's no way you can shield them from it all, and let's be honest, they're teenagers, they're curious, and they will look at it sometime, especially if you tell them how "bad" it is and try to keep it hidden from them.
