Does anyone know a small tool that you install which simply informs you of what information applications are sending with their online connections, e.g. so if you are installing photoshop elements trial it would be nice to see a message like this:
adobe_install.exe made connection to: www.adobe.com/ksdjldkfd.aspx sent: _this text_ received: _this text_
and perhaps wrote everything in a log that you can look at whenever you want.
I'm not looking for a full blown Norton antivirus solution, just a little sniffer tool that helps you keep an overview of what applications are doing with their online connections.
