Remacc.SpyAnywhere is a commercial remote access and system-monitoring program. It can be installed in an Administrative install or as a more basic Stealth install (no help files or shortcuts).

Remacc.SpyAnywhere can be used to:
  • View browser information and history
  • View the password cache (Windows 95/98/Me only)
  • Take a desktop screenshot
  • Gather port and Internet connection information
  • Remotely open Web sites and programs
  • Lock the computer
  • Freeze the mouse
  • Restart the computer

It can be set to run silently in the full version (silent mode is disabled in the trial version), and run automatically when Windows is started.

Control is through a Web-based interface that allows the client to access the host through any Internet-connected browser. The host computer being spied upon runs a Web server on a specified port. The host can also be set to email its IP address to a specified email account.

An optional component, SpyAgent, can add more capabilities, such as open window and keystroke viewing, as well as anti-spyware capability.


One or more files is detected as Remacc.SpyAnywhere.


Remacc.SpyAnywhere must be installed manually.
