It can store information about the programs run, files are opened and windows, make screenshots, see to what sites are visited, record keystrokes. The program can also record conversations, which are maintained by AOL, ICQ, MSN, AIM, Yahoo Messenger, save the contents of the mailbox MSN, Hotmail and Yahoo, which is viewed in a browser.
