Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could use something like Tight VNC to monitor a desktop, and it can be configured to operate silently (without requesting permission or notifying the user). You see the desktop as if you were sitting in front of it.

    I agree with CharlieBrowne. Make sure HR and legal counsel are involved before you go down this path. It'll end up biting you if you're not careful.
