Internet Monitoring and Access Control
software for Windows
Programs to monitor, control, and block access to the Internet
Web Site Zapper
Web Site Zapper is a software program for Windows that allows you to control Web access. It can block Web browsers from displaying any Web sites that you do not add to an allowed Web site list. Alternately, it can block sites that you do add to a forbidden site list. It can be used for several purposes:
1) Blocking your browser from being redirected to dangerous or undesirable
sites, such as those infected with viruses.
2) Blocking popups
3) Block Web sites, allowing parents, schools, and employers to prevent children, students, or employees from going to undesirable sites, such as pornography or gambling sites.
4) Controlling when people can access the Internet. Web Site Zapper has a password protected switch to turn off blocking, so you simply have Web Site Zapper block all Web sites until you are present and can turn off the blocking. Parents can use this to control how much time children spend on the Internet.
With Web Site Zapper, you compile a list of good and bad Web site titles and/or URLs (Web addresses). You can add Web site titles and URLs to these lists manually, or have Web Site Zapper build these lists automatically in learning mode (explained in the instruction manual).
Once you have built a list of Web sites, Web Site Zapper can either close down any site on the bad site list (Block mode), or close down any site NOT on the good site list (Allow mode). For more information on Web Site Zapper and to download a trial copy, click here.

Web Surfer Watcher
Web Surfer Watcher
is a software program for Windows that records what Web sites have been viewed on
your computer. Web Surfer Watcher operates hidden in the background, recording
Web site titles and URLs (addresses) of Web sites viewed using Internet Explorer
or America Online. It can only record the titles of Web sites viewed with other
Web browsers, such as Netscape, Opera, or Mozilla. You
can configure Web Surfer Watcher to either record this limited information form
these browsers, or block these browsers from running to force people to use
Internet Explorer or America Online.
When you run the viewer, you will see a list of the titles of Web sites that have been visited. The list displays the Web site titles. You can click on any title on the list to see the URL of the site, and also when the site was viewed. You can then click on the View Web Site button to actually see the Web site if you like. You can search the list of viewed sites for specific words to simplify checking for objectionable sites. This program can easily be run on a network, allowing you to monitor Internet activity on multiple computers from one computer. For more information on Web Surfer Watcher, click here.
