Though xpy is smaller than 60 kilobytes, it can close serious threats (i.e. DCOM) on long distance, where large service-packs can only protect you until a new security hole has been found.
Make sure you carefully choose the settings you want to apply, to avoid problems. If you experience trouble, refer to the Frequently Asked Questions or report a bug on SourceForge.
xpy is currently available in two versions, Redistributable and Monolingual. The Redistributable build includes all available languages and is intended for distribution on offline-media (i.e:CD-ROM) or Intranet, while the Monolingual builds try to save bandwidth for fastest possible download speed
