Q: How do I start using Spy Agent?
A: Simply configure your options (click on the "Options" button)
and then click the "Monitor" button. Click "Stop" to stop monitoring
- your admin password will be needed each time.
Q: How do I stop stealth mode?
A: Run the nostealth.exe in your Spy Agent installation directory
(or click on the "Stop Spy Agent Stealth Mode" item in the Spy
Agent menu in the Start-Programs menu).
Q: Who has access to Spy Agent once monitoring?
A: You are the only one that has access to Spy Agent once you
install it - unless you give the Spy Agent password to someone
else. This allows you to have exclusive access to Spy Agent's
logs and options.
Q: Spy Agent crashes whenever I click "Monitor",
or when I start up my PC, what is wrong?
A: Some machines have a problem with the Internet Connections
logging. You can reinstall Spy Agent to clear the options out
again, or manually delete the options file (it is the saopts.dat
file in your Windows directory) Then make sure you do not have
the "Log all Internet Connections" option checked. This should
fix your problem.
Q: Does Spy Agent work on Windows 2000?
A: Yes, Spy Agent can be downloaded and purchased for Windows
Q: How come I am not receiving the email-delivery
A: Make sure your SMTP host is proper and can handle your sender(from)
address. Your best bet is to use the same host you use for your
Internet mail (like netscape/outlook explorer). We recommend
the default settings with your host set to mail.spytech-web.com
and the send from address set to email@example.com. Also,
you may want to try the auto-clear options to reduce log mail
size. Sometimes large log files will timeout your mail server
causing the mails to be not sent.
