Tracking activities on PC while I'm away

I want to track the activities done on my PC in my absence. Can you guide me writing a Daemon, using VC++ or SDK, to track all the activities as well as keystrokes transferred to that application?

If you truly want to trap everything with no one knowing about it, I don't think you can do that. However, you can trap keystrokes by either inserting a keyboard filter device driver. You may be able to write a keyboard hook in a Win32 service, but I don?t know if Windows will properly inject it into each process. The device driver approach will work.
