Here is a list of best free computer spy software for Windows. Through these software, you can secretly spy on any PC and view all user activities of a target computer. Activities that are mainly monitored are Visited Websites, Screenshots, Frequently used PC applications, Clipboard, etc. Some software can even block websites and applications so that users can’t visit those websites. As we are talking about spy software, most software are pretty good at hiding themselves from PC users. Password protection is another feature that you get with these spy agents, that blocks access of all unauthorized users.
In this list, you can mainly find two types of free spy software. One that lets you monitor a PC from anywhere through internet or apps plus sends you timely reports via email. In the second type of spy software, you can only view the user activity from the same PC which is being monitored. Overall, both types of spy software work really well and provide all the important information that you require.

You can also check out lists of best free Keylogger Software, Porn Blocker Software, and Parental Control Software for Windows.
ActivTrak is a free computer spy software for Windows. It is mainly used to track activities of employees, but its invisible employee monitoring setup makes it an ideal software for computer spying. Through this software, you can track all the web activities of multiple users. Not just user activities, but user’s activities screenshots, URLs, etc. can also be viewed in real time.
As this software is mainly an employee monitoring software, so you can also track web activities in terms of productive, unproductive, etc. Plus, flexibility to view activities of all employees at once or one employee at a time is also there. Here, the admin can also set alarm for unproductive websites or even block unproductive websites completely.
To track all user activities, you first need to install the ActivTrak agent on the target computer. After that, log in to the ActivTrak account through any web browser to view all the activities performed on the targeted computer.

Qustodio is another free computer spy software for Windows. Through it, you can track both online and offline activities of a user. This software is mainly used as a parental control software, but you can spy on any PC through it. A small Qustodio client and a Qustodio account are required to track the user activity. The main disadvantage of this software is that you cannot make it completely hidden from the user. A user can view it from the System Tray and Task Manager.
In terms of online activity, you can track every website and search made through the PC, even if websites are accessed through Private or Incognito modes. Plus, it also provides a User’s Usage graph from where you can view which websites are accessed the most and for how much time. Similar to web activities, you can also track all the PC applications used by the user.
In this software, you can also find various parental control features like the ability to block websites and applications. Besides this, you can also set alert when some specific websites are accessed by the user. To track the user activity, you can also use Qustodio phone application. This means you can track the PC activity from anywhere in real-time.
Note: In this free version of Qustodio, many features like social media monitoring, balance screen time, games control, location tracking, etc. are blocked. By purchasing the paid version, you can remove all limitations. Home Page Download Page
Spyprix Free Keylogger
Spyprix Free Keylogger is the next free computer spy software for Windows in this list. Using it, you can easily record and monitor every single keystroke typed by the user. This freeware can also capture screenshots of active programs at specified intervals, so that you can monitor all the activities going on in the PC. It can also make reports about programs that are running.
In this software, you can view the user activity by launching this software in the target computer or by using the Spyprix account to view the report from any location. In both methods, you get almost similar options like Keyboard event (to view all pressed keys), Screenshots (to view the user activity), Search Queries, etc. Plus, some user activity graphs are also available to quickly view the user’s preferred websites and applications.
In it, I find a major flaw that its Windows application does not ask password before launching; due to which, any user can change the settings or even disable this software.
Note: In this free version, many important features like sound recording, webcam screenshot, website blocker, social network activity, etc. are disabled. You need to purchase this software in order to enjoy all of its features. Home Page Download Page

You need to install the Network Spy server setup on a computer which you want to spy. To install this setup, you need to provide a Port number that can be any number between 1000 and 3000. Now, install the Client setup on your computer. Now, launch the Network Spy client and enter the targeted PC IP address and the same port number that you have submitted during the network Spy server installation.
