It is always easy to review good products as they have a lot of advantages and minimum disadvantages. Following this postulate Spytech SpyAgent is one of the easiest programs to review as it holds one of the top positions in our testing! So, let's start.
The installation process of Standard Edition of SpyAgent is very simple, and takes only few seconds — the only thing you need to do is to launch the installation file and pass through few installation steps.
After the installation, the keylogger asks you to create a password and shows you "Easy configuration and setup wizard" that has only five steps (three of them are "Confirm Settings", "Apply" and "Finish") that will help a user to make a "quick configure" of the keylogger. After finishing "Easy configuration and setup wizard" we are welcomed to see the main program screen that is really pleasant to look at — all the information is grouped into categories. All the categories have special icons that should be clicked if you want to view the intercepted information of this category. Great filtration functionality is the positive side of the program: the information can be viewed in groups, in one log, sorted by date, by time, by name, etc. The main program screen is also the place where from you can configure Spytech SpyAgent in a much more detailed way. The keylogger has several configuration screens that are also grouped into categories and let the user configure even the smallest things in program's behavior.
As for the log transfer options, the log files can be transferred by all the means available in our testing — email, LAN, FTP and portable device. As for the program stealthiness level it is also almost perfect "in the middle" — there are no files in Start menu, nothing in the "Add or remove programs" menu, and keylogger's folder is hidden. Unfortunately, the processes of SpyAgent are visible in Task Manager and its Startup Entries are not hidden.
As for the interception, Spytech SpyAgent intercepts both sides of Yahoo, ICQ, AIM and Skype messengers. The program records mouse clicks and system logon time, but not the password. As for the good part of interception capabilities, Spytech SpyAgent monitors all the file activities, and even records the system inactivity time and microphone! All the sounds produced near your PC, including voice chats, can be registered. Moreover, the program allows capturing and storing images through computer’s webcam thus helping you understand what is going on there. If you desire to view the situation in real-time mode, you can benefit from the newly developed function Real-Time Remote Viewing. This will enable you to keep control over what is being done on your computer ceaselessly.
The visual surveillance is great — all functions are implemented.
Parental control and filtering options are worth praising — both of the Parental Control options and all of the filtering ones except the "Specified programs monitoring" and "Several days report building" are implemented.
Summing up, we can say that Spytech SpyAgent Standard Edition will come in handy to all the users who value simplicity in use and functionality but pay less attention to stealthiness.
