I am looking for a simple application (free or not) that will track
website usage by user. If it can use the windows logon that is fine,
if not it would be ok if it required users to logon to the software
before they could access internet explorer.

Something that just recorded the User, URL, Date, Time.

This is for home use so I can track my kid's web usage.

I'm running Win 2k pro and each person in the household has their
individual logon id & password.

I know some of this information is contained in the history files but
it can be deleted.

Anyone have any ideas???

thanks!

You might want to look at something like Net Nanny or such. It is supposed
to log and be able to restrict access for multiple users. Any user who is a
local administrator, knowingly or not, may however be able to reconfigure or
delete/change the logs. There are also free programs like Regseeker that can
recover deleted history information from a users profile though again a
knowledgeable user can use Regseeker to delete that information. The only
sure way to track usage is at the gateway [which must be secured] which many
companies do with something like Windows ISA 2004 but that is a pricey
product for a home network. The links below may help. --- Steve

Try Netnanny, Cyberwatch or any of hundreds of other surf control
programs.

NetNanny has more features (actually good features) than I was
originally wanting but I went ahead and bought it. So far I really
like it.

Thanks for the replies!!
