    If "Desktop Recording" means something else in this instance, please explain a little bit more what you mean

        Boy, I'd hate working for you. Do you stand over their shoulders all day and watch them work to make sure they're productive? Are these employees adults or are they a bunch of kids that need your constant supervision? Recording their desktop sessions has nothing to do with measuring their productivity, it has to do with treating your employees like untrustworthy children and monitoring everything they do. If I was your employee and I found out you were trying to do this I'd flip you the middle finger and then I'd quit.

          I agree completely with Joe, and would worry about YOUR productivity if all you are doing is monitoring your staff.

          AFAIK there is no native way to do anything like this in Windows, although there are third party applications such as Net Monitor which will do something similar.

          You would also need legal advice on the lawfulness - in your country - and ethics - of such monitoring

              I am now confused. f you are already using Net Monitor, what was the point of the original post, which certainly implied you were looking for a desktop recording solution?

                Block streaming media, Facebook and games on your network.

                  Our much revered Overlord was involved with Observe IT which may be worth a look. Not free but there was mention of a trial, no wrong [EDIT] there is a trial version AND a Demo. If Daniel was involved with this product then I believe it should be more than suitable for your needs. I have no idea on the cost or what it would take to fit into your existing infrastructure.

                  Failing that, do as Wullie suggests and block the unwanted/distracting apps and games. You might also consider an IT Code of Conduct or whatever it is called and get every staff member to read, sign and return a copy to you so they can't say they were not aware of the rules. This could also be added to your orientation package for new employees.

                  I for one will disagree with my colleagues and their above comments about working for you. It is your company and if staff are goofing off in your time and costing you money then you have every right to monitor their online activities. If you have any vacancies then I am more than happy to be spied upon.

                    While it's ideal to not have to monitor employees, I have several clients that find they need to. We have used SpectorSoft products and they are very comprehensive. Can gather pretty much any aspect of computer usage.
