    I downloaded it... its basic protection but its a very nice layer of security that works alongside other security products like AV, HIPS and firewalls. Compatible with Windows 7/8. Has just what's needed and nothing that you don't need to keep you safe online.

    Only 32 bit but then again there are lot of legacy 32 bit Windows and computers still in use. No problems with it on my 64 bit Windows.

    Just set and forget it anti-keylogger protection - for FREE! Light on resources, too!

    Thanks, Zemana - we have been waiting for something like this for a long time now. It sits unobstrusively in the Windows systray! :D

    It looks like it encrypts keyboard input system wide.
    This doesn't make it immune to all keyloggers.

    It does have regular updates. Not bad at all for free security software! :thumb:

    So this encrypts keystrokes, so it's like KeyScrambler?

    I uninstalled Keyscrambler Personal. I like system-wide protection! :thumb:

    Installed. No system impact. 18MB RAM usage.

    It would be nice to know how well it works. If I remember Zemana did poorly compared to SpyShelter.

    Also, where is Zemana based? It's either Turkey or Iran. If it's Turkey fine, Iran, it's gone.

    So they release a free version with basic protection, but the protection method from the free version is actually a new feature which is not yet available in the paid version.. That and the new GUI style of the free version seem to suggest to me that v2.0 is finally here soon?

    So encryption of key strokes works when using Google Chrome or SRware Iron?
    Is there a nag screen to upgrade?
    Can any security features be disabled if a person only wants the key stroke encryption?
    Are there any known conflicts, such as sandboxie or antivirus programs?
    how does this compare to spyshelter free as far as offered protection?

    sorry for so many questions

    Power users can pay for the extra features and the ability to customize protection but for the vast majority of home users - the free version's default settings will be more than enough!

    It works silently. There is no nag screen to upgrade. You can slide off the anti-keylogger protection if you want.

    There is no conflict with SB or anti-virus. But you don't need two anti-KL programs. One should give complete protection! :D

    1)I test it a little and works in mozilla, in explorer, in notepad, in word.
    Basically i think that is generally encrypts key stroke in every application.
    I cant test it with games like diablo or wow may someone else can do it.
    2)no nag screen a install and forget with a clean interface, also very light.
    3)In my test it has only key encryptption no other security features, maybe sg has test it better but i dont think it has kaylogger protection.
    4) I test it with avast and works.

    I like the look of this program and half tempted to download and install.
    Although if it gets to the point where im needing a separate program to protect against trojan keyloggers then i need to seriously doubt the effectiveness of my primary security product which in theory should be keeping these out.!!:eek:

    I understand its free and is a added protection layer but my main protection should not be letting these in at the first point of defense.:ninja:

    So if I understand, it encrypts all your keystrokes, but won't prevent or remove keyloggers like the paid version? So really it's more like KeyScrambler than SpyShelter?

    Also, where is the company based?

    And I noticed there is no nag screen, but there is a box in settings that you can uncheck to not be alerted to Zemana promotions.

    Because I don't trust the Iranian regime to not have its hands in a security product, the same reason I won't use Chinese software. I have nothing against the Iranian people, but I won't support a product made there. But it's from Turkey so that's fine.
