PC Agent monitors and records the activities of all users on a computer unnoticed. The monitoring captures not only the most common activities like keystrokes, visited websites and screenshots, but also Internet activities such as sent and received emails and many more. PC Agent is specially designed to send the records in several different ways.
Records all keystrokes, shortcuts, hotkeys and keystrokes in password input fields. The use of the Input Method Editor (IME) for typing East Asian characters are also recorded. Unlike most other keyloggers, the monitoring records also the keystrokes correctly if a keyboard layout be used with unicode-characters such as Cyrillic, Indian, Arabic and many more.
Records mouse clicks with the name of the control and text under the cursor. For example, the labels of buttons are recorded if the user clicks on it.
Records the login and logout of users with additional information such as: date of last logon, logon time, number of logons, session, remote server, etc.
Records the text and file names, which will be copied to the clipboard by the user. This usually happens by the use of the context menus Copy and Paste or by the shortcuts CTRL+C and CTRL+V.
Records the power state, such as standby or hibernate mode, if possible with additional information such as the energy source or battery state on laptops.
Data medium change
Records added or removed storage media such as CD, DVD, memory cards, USB flash drives or network drives with additional information such as drive letter, device name, device type, serial number and file system.
Records dial-up connections with additional information such as device name, device type, phone number, user name and password as well as connection time.
Records the names of files or folders, which will be opened, deleted, renamed, copied or moved by the user.
Records the print jobs, which will be sent to the local print spooler in EMF format. The monitoring records the complete document, exactly as it was sent to the printer.
Records the images, which will be read from an image input device (like scanner or webcam) by using the TWAIN or WIA interface.
Captures screenshots of the windows, which will be moved in the foreground. Freely selectable values for the size and quality of the screenshots can reduce the size of the records.
Captures images from a webcam in a predefined interval. A new image will be recorded only, if the image has changed in comparison to the last image. Freely selectable values for the size and quality of the image can reduce the size of the records.
