    Does anyone know of any monitoring or parental control software for mac that would work even in safe mode? From what I can tell, they all are easily disabled by safemode.

    If it were possible I would like to have a parental control system that has a separate password system from the user and would allow monitoring of admin users (and not be easily disabled by safemode).

    Thanks for any tips.

    I don't think it's possible in Safe Mode, but you can password-protect Safe Mode with a firmware password. You can set the firmware password by booting up from your Mac OS X Install DVD.

    More information in this support article.
