StatWin monitors information about applications launched, running time, close-down time, names of users, etc. These information helps the admin or user to know which programs are used mostly in the office by the users, how much time the users are spending for an application or web page. It will help to learn if any inappropriate software is used in the office based on which they can take actions.

The users or admin can view statistics on processes, rating of frequently used processes in percentage and as a diagram and generate various usage reports. The reports are generated & saved in a predefined location in the computer memory or network memory. Watching all the reports & information, users can tune up the system for better performance, identify and terminate suspicious and inappropriate processes, or see what other users are doing when the computer admin is not around! Over a specified period of time, the program also takes screenshots of the computer screen and saves images to the selected destination.
