Description by the Publisher
SimpleActivityLogger is a Windows service that records the following events:
* System Startup & Shutdown
* User Logon & Logoff
* Console Lock & Unlock
* Screen Saver start & stop
* Monitor Power on & off
* Fast User Switch
There is a also a small GUI application that allows the user to view the log, append comments to it, edit it, and change the settings.
SimpleActivityLogger is most useful for people who need to track their computer usage during the course of a day for billing purposes.
It is also useful for tracking the usage of a shared computer. However, it is not a covert 'spy' program and makes no attempt to disguise itself.
SimpleActivityLogger is not a snooping program. It is not intended to hide, or spy on a user, or to be in any way covert. If you're looking for a program to secretly spy on users then look elsewhere.
It's also not especially secure; events are logged to a plain text file in the public application data folder, which means the file can be read (and edited) by any user.
The reason for this is that it was designed for use in a single user environment, where the user simply wants to log the supported events as an aide-mmoire for computer usage, say for filling in timesheets or recording billable time.
SimpleActivityLogger v2.x is compatible with Windows XP onwards, and Windows Server 2003 onwards.
It has been explicitly tested with Windows XP (32-bit), Windows 7, and Windows 10, but should work with all compatible versions of Windows.
You will require local administrator privileges to install SimpleActivityLogger but thereafter it will work fine with Standard (a.k.a. Limited) User accounts.
