In order to install Elite Keylogger we pass through these windows: Installer Language (English, Russian and Spanish are available) → EULA → Warning (recommending us to turn all the security software for the period of keylogger's installation off and allowing us to show Elite Keylogger's unhide instructions after reboot) → Another Warning (recommending us to create a System Restore point) → Choose Components (Invisible Mode, Logs Viewer only) → Automatic uninstallation (allowing us to set a date for Elite Keylogger's automatic uninstallation). After Elite Keylogger is installed it asks us to reboot the system immediately. We press OK and wait for our PC to boot.
We marked "Show instructions on unhiding program after reboot" during the installation, so the first thing we see once the system starts is the screen informing us about the keyword that should be typed in order to start Elite Keylogger. We also notice that the installation file of the keylogger has been removed during the reboot. So we type the keyword, click "Continue demo", create a password, confirm it and Elite Keylogger's window opens.
The interface of Elite Keylogger is very beautiful and thought-out. The main window is split into two sections: the main part, and a right column. All the logged information is grouped into categories located in upper part of the column; the lower part of the column contains a calendar where one can choose a date to generate the log for. The intercepted information is shown in the main part of the window. The interface leaves an impression of a one made with love to the product: tiny icons, pleasant fonts, soft colors, etc. It's a pleasure to use a keylogger made with such an attention to the details!
Elite Keylogger runs on both 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, Vista and XP. Unfortunately, the rest of the operating systems are not supported.
The security of Elite Keylogger is on a high level. Its folder is invisible, it can be accessed by typing a keyword and is protected with a password. As it was said before, Elite Keylogger can be configured to uninstall itself automatically after a pre-specified period of time. There is no hotkey combination that should be pressed to access the keylogger, it can't be installed remotely and its users won't be able to configure text of a warning message to be shown on a system start.
As for the monitoring, Elite Keylogger logs keys pressed, clipboard content, started applications, and printed documents. It also makes screenshots and allows its user to configure their quality, set a period of their making and choose whether a picture of an entire desktop or of an active window only should be made. It is strange that despite Elite Keylogger detects both log on time and password, it doesn't record system log off time.
Elite Keylogger perfectly logs all the visited URLs in all the browsers taking part in our testing. It also shows the content of both sent and received emails. Unfortunately, log files of Elite Keylogger show only one side of chat conversations made in instant messengers.
As for the reports, Elite Keylogger provides many options for working with them to its users. They can perform a search in reports, edit a list of users and programs to be monitored, set maximum size of the log-files and configure their auto-clearance. There is no type of logs delivery in our testing, Elite Keylogger doesn't support: you can use email, FTP, LAN or USB device to send the log-files. Unfortunately, users of Elite Keylogger have no option to choose the logs for a period of dates, thus will need to generate a separate report for each of the days.
It is also bad that Elite Keylogger can't react to a pre-specified keyword, block websites and programs. However, it can work on schedule and is available not in English only, but also in Russian and Spanish.
Summing up we can say that Elite Keylogger is a good keylogger with very pretty interface that is just a pleasure to work with. Its functionality doesn't allow us to recommend it for parental control or employee monitoring, yet makes it a good keylogger for monitoring at home.
