    Also what are the differences between them? As keyscambler encrypts while surfing the internet (FF or IE 11).

    What's the point in use an antikeylogger?

    If you don't trust your computer, you should stop using it and restore your latest trustworthy backup, or reformat it and reinstall everything.

    If you think you have a keylogger installed, why do you think an antikeylogger will de 100% effective?

    And what about hardware keyloggers, there is no software capable to detect or avoid it.

    Following your logic no one should:
    1. Patch Windows ever, after all they aren't 100%.
    2. Use security software, of any kind whatsoever, after all hackers or compromised website will screw you.
    3. Afterwards then there's no point to update any software at all, as they never will reach a status of "perfect".

    :eek:

    I tried the free version of Zemana Key Logger and Anti-Malware. There is an option in the Anti-Malware program to run a scan on your system. I tried it, and it only found one problem. It said that my HOSTS file had too many blank lines.

    That didn't bother me because I had added many lines to the HOSTS file from threads here on MDL, like Destroy Windows Spying, R29K and others. I also installed the MVPS HOSTS file additions. So the HOSTS file did indeed have a lot of blank lines.

    But I figured I'd let Zemana do it's thing. The program completed. I thought it odd that it didn't ask for confirmation regarding what it was about to do to my HOSTS file. When I looked I was astonished that Zemana deleted my customized HOSTS file :confused: and installed the empty default one that comes with Windows. No backup was made either.

    Fortunately I had a current backup so it wasn't a big deal. But if I hadn't checked, all the effort I put into customizing the HOSTS file would have been for naught.

    So be careful with the scan option when using Zemana.

    Zemana AntiLogger

    It's paid though. Never trust free software! they are camouflaged viruses!
