software to track internet usage on family computer

Is there a good free monitor that will allow me to monitor my son's internet activity. I'm specifically looking for history of websites visited and time spent on the site. I think that he is visiting sites that his mom would not approve of but is erasing the history etc.

Maybe KidLogger is suitable for your situation, if you have access to his PC:

KidLogger. Free keystroke logger, web activity monitor and screen capturer.

Very simple, free and open source key-logger (keystroke logger) program. Designed for home family users and to keep watch on kids (2-7 years) activity on the computer. It can log all websites visited, chat rooms talks, started programs, opened documents and windows viewed pictures and movies. It is also a simple and FREE key logger and activity monitoring program for family needs.

I don't know about time spent, but most loggers will show you a time beside each event, so you can just see when he visits a new site and compare times.
