SentryPC Features and Product
Probably the most important feature of SentryPC is its time
management. Every program, game, web site, etc is at your disposal
for time management settings. This means you can specify by
what hours on what days of the week the user can access and
use your selection. You also have the ability to enter a 'weekly
allowance' which, when the total time you enter for the selection
has been used for that week, the user no longer has access until
the following week.
Time Management Control Panel
You have the ability to block computer usage completely during
the hours you specify for each day of the week. Included is
the ability to specify a total weekly allowance of computer
usage which, when reached, will block access until restored
by you, or when the next week begins.
Restore Computer Access
If a user has been blocked access you have the option as the
administrator to quickly and easily grant them full access.
This is useful is a user really does need access, but due to
settings is being blocked for whatever reason.
Content Filtering Features
SentryPC has a very powerful, extensive filtering engine. You
can essentially choose a daily schedule of 'allowable' times
for virtually any program on your computer. SentryPC can also
filter web site visits, intercept important keystroke phrases
typed by users (like addresses, phone numbers, names), and restrict
chat client usage.
Application Filtering - Filter any application
on your computer by having SentryPC block it during specific
time frames, or whenever the program is executed.
Web site Filtering - Filter specific
web sites from being visited, or have SentryPC block all web
site visits - except for those you allow.
Chat Filtering - Block AOL, AIM, AIM
Express, AOL Chat, Yahoo, ICQ, MSN, Excite, Trillian, Mirc,
and Odigo for each user.
Keystroke Filtering - Enter specific
words or phrases that cannot be entered by users. For instance,
enter your children's name, address, phone number, or credit
card number and whenever they are typed the window will be closed
instantly. This ensures confidential information cannot be shared
with others through email, web sites, etc.
User Notification - You have the option
to alert the user that they were restricted from doing a filtered
activity, when the event arises.
Activity Monitoring Features
SentryPC also monitors and records important information for
all users of the computer. You will have easy to read reports
of all keystrokes, windows opened, applications used, web sites
visited, and all chat conversations. Each includes the time,
date, and duration as well. This is imperative for preventing
harmful and/or unauthorized use of the computer and Internet.
Keystroke Logging - Record every single keystroke
typed by users - logged by the application they were typed in,
Application Usage Logging - Log every
application a user runs, as well as how long they actually interact
with each application.

AOL, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN Messenger chat conversations made
by users of your computer.

sites visited with Internet Explorer, AOL, Opera, Netscape,

each window users interact with while using your computer. Application
paths are logged with the window as well.
