Programs designed to monitor user activity. They may be used with or without consent. Because it is sold commercially, many anti-virus vendors do not detect them. The most common form of a commercial monitoring tool comes in the form of a keystroke logger, which intercepts keystrokes from the keyboard and records them in a log. This can then be sent to whoever installed the software, or keylogger, onto the machine. Some Commercial Monitoring Software may take screenshots or video and send the information to an outbound connection.

First, Webroot no longer makes nor sells WinGuardian. We stopped offering it over a year ago. And even if we were still selling it, our
anti-spyware program, Spy Sweeper, detects all products capable of tracking user's activities -- including our own. If anyone is running
an old version of WinGuardian or ChildSafe, it will be detected by Spy Sweeper and treated exactly the same as any other spyware program.
This has been true since the launch of Spy Sweeper.
Much like Net Nanny and other legitimate parental and/or corporatemonitoring systems, when used properly, these tools are valuable to protecting corporate assets and for parents to protect their children online. While we don't currently offer any monitoring tools, Webroot is still committed to maintaining privacy and offering protection from online dangers."
