PC Activity Monitor Pro (PC Acme Pro) Review

A keylogger with multilanguage support working on Windows 9x, NT, 2000, XP and 2003 Server. Its functionality may be enough for home monitoring and its interface is clear. In our testing it gets 433 of 1016 points.

6.5.1 version now supports Windows 2003 Server

Advantages:
  • Multi-OS support
  • Grouping of the intercepted information into categories
  • Great stealthiness level
  • Great file-activity monitoring
  • Mouse-clicks recording
  • Multi-language interface

Disadvantages:
  • Weak URL interception
  • One side interception in messengers
  • No visual surveillance

PC ACME Pro is the most international keylogger in our testing. Many of the keyloggers in our testing are translated into more than one language, but PC ACME Pro is the only one that has 14(!) languages to choose among. But, let's get down to the review…

The first thing that appears after launching the installation file of the program is the screen asking you to choose the language of the installation. After choosing it and confirming your choice by clicking "OK" button you are welcome to read EULA, choose among "Full" and "Custom" installation, choose the path where the keylogger should be installed to and, at last, to create a password for accessing the program. It is interesting that the process of installation itself is probably the fastest of all we have ever seen — it looks like the program installs immediately. Anyway we again face the bulk of pre-installation screens that influences negatively the whole impression of a product.

The product consists of three parts — "Control Center", "Viewer" and the SpyAgent itself. The first one is designed for configuring the SpyAgent, the second one — for viewing the intercepted information and the third one is for actually spying. As far as we understand after configuring the SpyAgent the first two components of this trio should be uninstalled to make the product completely invisible. Stealthiness is actually one of the strongest points of PC ACME Pro — the product is totally invisible — no icons, menus, files in Task Manager or on the hard drive can be found after uninstalling all modules, except SpyAgent.

As for the interception we should emphasize the great file-activity monitoring (the product monitors absolutely all file-activities), mouse clicks interception, interception of system log on/off time and even the interception of log on password. But we also cannot but admit very weak URLs' interception (only IE URLs are intercepted), only one-side chat interception (both sides in ICQ only) and total absence of such functions as parental control and screenshot—making. And if parental control functions are still not very much widespread it is really strange to see a monitoring product that has no ability to make screenshots nowadays…

As for the Log transfer options, PC ACME Pro uses two of the four means — log-files can be sent via email and LAN by the program. The keylogger also takes the middle place in Filtering capabilities — it is necessary to accentuate such a rare function as "Specified programs monitoring" — not all the keyloggers have such a function implemented.

Summing up we can say that PC ACME Pro is a good keylogger with multilanguage support that will come in handy to all people who value stealthiness and user friendliness and pay less attention to visual surveillance and chats' interception.
