Internet Spy Quick Start
When you install Internet Spy its icon will appear in the System Tray (next to the clock). The program is ready to work and record addresses of all Web sites visited with Internet Explorer.
You can view the full chronological list of these addresses by right-clicking the program's system tray icon and selecting the View Log command from the menu that appears. A typical record in the log file looks something like this:
[18/12/2002 01:04:17] http://www.spyarsenal.com
[18/12/2002 01:04:22] http://www.spyarsenal.com/internet-spy/
[18/12/2002 01:06:38] http://www.spyarsenal.com/download.html
It contains the date and time when the resource was visited and its full URL. If you want Internet Spy to stay unnoticed, you can hide its icon by selecting Hide Icon from the tray menu. Now the program works in the stealth mode and stays invisible until you press the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+I hotkey.
Mark the Autorun option if you want Internet Spy to load on each Windows startup. If you mark the Hide at Startup option, the program will always start in the stealth mode.
