Hi, Thank you for your question. You can monitor remote computers with a program called RealVNC. RealVNC is freeware and can be downloaded here: RealVNC http://www.realvnc.com/ You need to install the server on each machine you want to monitor. Here are details on how to install and use it. This is using version 4 beta for win32. http://www.realvnc.com/dist/vnc-4.0b4-x86_win32.exe 1-) Double click the file to install. Press "Yes". Click "Next". Click on "I accept the agreement". Click "Next". Choose the installation directory, then "Next". You don't need to install the viewer on the computers you want to monitor. Press "Next". Then "Next" again twice. Now press install. Make sure you keep it running as service mode. This will prevent users without administrative access from shutting it down. 2-) You should now see a little icon in the bottom right of the screen. If you go to Start->Programs->RealVNC->VNC Server 4 (Service-Mode)->Configure VNC Service. You should be able to set the password for the computers you want to monitor. On the "Inputs" tab of the server configuration, you might want to uncheck the first two boxes: "Accept pointer events from clients" and "Accept keyboard events from clients". This is so that when you monitor the computers you don't interfere with the actual browsing. 3-) From your server computer you can now launch the RealVNC viewer and connect to the computers you want to monitor. All you have to do is launch the viewer from Start->Programs->RealVNC->VNC Viewer 4, then enter the IP address of the computer you want to monitor. Press "ok" then enter the password you chose for the computer. Press "ok", now you should see what the user sees on that computer and be able to monitor whatever they do. I hope this answers your question. If anything is unclear or if you require any clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask.
