Verity monitors a user's activity by detecting which window is active. It records the executable name (example.exe) and the window's caption. It also keeps a running count of how many keystrokes and mouse clicks have been entered between each log entry to give the parent an idea of when the computer is actually being used and in which programs, as opposed to when it is just sitting idle.

You can specify programs as prohibited and choose whether Verity should close them when they are detected. This is done by accessing the Parental Controls page through the web interface and enter the executables you want prohibited. Enter them in the form "badprog.exe, otherprog.exe."
