read description first
Tiny Keylogger v2.0 is composed of a basic keylogger with several features that put it above and beyond the current standard. It can run as a visible program, or hidden, giving the administrator access to all activity on his or her workstation. It records every keystroke made on the computer and stores them to the hard drive in files according to date and time.Keyloggers used to be used by businesses to view what workers were doing then it was used to steal peoples life's so all ant-virus programs will detect this as a virus even thought its not if you are still unsure then don't download it personally i use it and an download cent is a very trust worthy site.

well other than the zune theme i'm just not seeing any of these to be that helpful...especially cause i'd hate for my pc to look like a mac =/

ratman9 (author)Trainguyxx2009-11-12

Well IMO SOme of these are pretty useful. But I agree with the  last phrase. WHo would want their PC to look like something that does less, for more cash?

Retrobot (author)ratman92011-05-05

Whats with the mac hating. Everything windows 7 can do mac has been able to do for years, also most of the items in this able mac can do out of the box.

Just try one with an open mind, you would convert. (oh and get a second job)
