I have a need for some type of software like pc anywhere or remote desk top that will allow me to view what a person is doing with out them seeing me get on or seeing me there at all.
Or some sort of remote recording to record their computer usage.

PCAnywhere can accomplish this in real time. So can TightVNC, a free download. You will want to test either of these products. Certain configurations of PCAnywhere will change the remotes' desktop to a solid color, and there is a system tray icon that would need to be disabled.

These products are not meant to allow big brother access though. A better question is why you want to micro manage or police your coworkers/employees? I don't mean to start a philosophical discussion, but if you can not trust them then get rid of them. Don't waste your valuable time spying on them.

I have this technology installed and I use it for training and troubleshooting my remote branches. It works great for that.

You would find a better solution if you had a specific action you wanted to find out if they were doing. Like using corporate email for personal use, or surfing the web 6 hours a day. These things are better tracked with logs and proxy servers. Rather than micro managing people.

If you are a computer professional then stay in that profession, don't become a rent-a-cop.

You might try SpectorSoft's eBlaster - it's a key logging software that will hide itself from the user and send you weekly, daily, hourly (you decide) reports on from the monitored computer.
