How to Log Internet Activityby Jasmine Carpenter
A convenient way to log Internet activity on your computer is by using computer monitoring and Internet filtering software. Nearly all of the software tools are able to capture the activity of website visits, internet chat conversations, emails sent through webmail and images viewed on a computer. Try using freeware or shareware that's offered online. Look for features that allow you to log Internet activity and control or restrict users access on your computer.
Choose a computer monitoring and Internet filtering software tool that best suites your needs. There are various types of trial versions available that you can download and compare. Visit software download websites such as “CNET,” “Shareware Connection” and “Free Downloads Center” that offer different types of computer monitoring software that can be used to log your computer's Internet activity.
Download and install the software tool on your computer. Follow Windows on-screen installation instructions. When the software tool is finished installing its files on your computer, double-click on the software icon to open the application, then configure the filtering settings to log Internet activity on your computer.
Follow the software instructions for configuring the filtering settings. Since many computer monitoring and Internet filtering software features vary, make certain that you carefully follow the instructions for recording Internet activity on your computer. Many computer monitoring and Internet filtering software tools allow you to customize the filtering settings based on who is using the Internet on your computer. Some software tools allow you to monitor and log Internet activity, as well as block access to certain websites and files according to the type of filter that you have enabled.
Review the computer monitoring and Internet filtering software features, then determine if you want to continue using it on your computer. Normally, after using freeware or shareware on a trial basis, the software filtering tool may become inactive after about 30 days unless you decide to purchase the software from the developer's website.
Purchase the computer monitoring and Internet filtering software from the developer's website. Continue using the software to log and monitor your computer's Internet activity.
