Monitorer is a small utility that records every single keystroke you have written on your computer for the whole day. The recorded data is saved into a small text file, so you can prevent loss of data if your computer crashes or if you delete a long piece of text you just wrote you can just open the text file and copy the lost text.This utility can also be used to monitor the use of your computer, for example if an unauthorized person used your computer and altered any settings or data you can just look at what he typed and change it back.

Installed on Macbook Pro: Unusable. 80% CPU usage, fan spinning near maximum constantly. Removed ASAP.

A simple way to get rid of it: With the program called "Onyx" tick the box to securely delete what's in the trash. Put anything remotely "monitorer" in the trash. Click on "apply" in Onyx. There you go.

Install this only if you want to give yourself a migraine trying to make it go away. Absolutely terrible.

Ok, I've figured out a definite way to kill this thing. First, you have to make invisible files visible, using Tinkertool ( http://www.bresink.de/osx/TinkerTool.html ) or the utility of your choice.

Now, in /users/shared/ you will find (dimmed because they're suppoed to invisible) a "KernalFolder" folder, and a "Monitorer" folder. Inside the first, there's a Monitor Pro X [version number] application. Delete it.

Now, delete the "Monitorer" folder. If you haven't already, end the process "cronsd" in Process Viewer/Activity Monitor, and logout and back in. If you did it right, you won't see the orange window, and you won't find a "cronsd" process.

Hope this is helpful.

First off, this thing kinda sucks. The whole point of a keylogger/monitoring app is to watch WITHOUT GIVING YOURSELF AWAY. This thing sucks around 50% of your CPU cycles. Do not download it, don't use it, and if you ever meet the person who made it, punch them for me.

The only way to delete it and actually keep it deleted that I've found: go into /System/Library/StartupItems/ It'll be a "Cron" folder. Drag it to the trash, then in Activity monitor/Process viewer, quit the process "cronsd."

Empty your trash, make absolutely sure it's dead. Log out and in again, just to make sure it doesn't ressurect itself.

One step lower and this thing would be a virus.

Hey 'Yo', i don't know how much RAM you have installed, but i can't see it using up much RAM at all on my computer (i got 128 MB installed). Can't commend your uninstalling problem, i had no need to do this yet :-)

PS: Great tool!

Does what it says, but for an unacceptable price: 25-50% of CPU. Surely they must be joking.

I used to have something in OS 9 that did this and it saved my bacon more than once. But this takes up 30% of my CPU!!! Sorry, don't think so.

Works okay, but seems to slow my system down considerably. The fan on my PowerBook G4 (667 MHz) runs constantly when I have this program running. Also, seems to capture a lot of garbage key strokes, so when I go back to resurrect what I typed, it's very, very difficult to get much meaningful info from the files. (I type about 80 words and 80 errors a minute - the most-used key on my keyboard is ). ;-)>

I long for a program like the old "Last Resort" for OS 9 that works in OS X. This is a good start and continues to improve - but it still has a ways to go.

Does exactly as promised...puts keystrokes AND screenshots in a log for you. You can adjust the time intervals. Once you register, the reminder goes away and it runs in the background in stealth mode with no icons. As with many recorders, it probably won't be 100-percent accurate with every individual keystroke. But you'll certainly get the idea as to what's being done on your machine while you're away :)

Fredducker had trouble on 11 May 2007
I downloaded Monitorer, and it didn't work properly.
All the log files I have opened showed me that the files were saved AS IF I
had set the wrong keyboard settings for example if I type in an email: "ask him
what he means" Monitorer recorded: "qsk hi, zhqt he ,eqns". See the problem?
It's a real pain.
Of course my email to them returned to sender with a "failure notice".
Lame.

Or maybe you decide to use this application to view what your employees have been doing at work the whole day, monitorer can do all this and more. With the new feature, the screen-capturing, you have more power to monitor because now you can view everything, for example contents of websites like pictures, or graphics in other applications like Photoshop or ImageReady. You even can choose the quality and the datasize of the screenshots! Monitorer runs in the background so you won't notice it is even there until you need it.
