“SpyAgent lacks a few extras such as anti-cyberbullying tools and text alerts, but it is an affordable and useful monitoring tool.” Top Ten Reviews
“Bought this one, because it is ranked #1 and am happy with the purchase. It monitors all the things I need – browsers, chats, emails, inactivity time. Spent very little time to configure the logging and log-sending to my email. Will see what else it can do, but until now it seems to be a good one.” – User

As said earlier, the software offers a demo version but also possess a restriction on its usage. You can use the trial version of the software for monitoring your PC only for the first 30 minutes. So after the stipulated time period, the software stops monitoring and collecting the log details. After that, you need to buy the full version to continue monitoring your PC.
