    Now that Zemana has their anti keylogger in an x64 flavor I think its appropriate to compare the two since it wasnt previously possible in the same situation.

    I assume to do Windows KPP (Kernel Patch Protection) that both are limited in one way or another. However there have to be detection differences or module differences that one can do that the other cant.

    I personally love Spyshelter Premium on my Windows x64 Pro. It has a very clean interface, seems to be doing its job properly, and has an easy to use GUI and configuration.

    I cant say anything for Zemana.

    Anyone for or against either of them, experiences with either of them?

    Keep in mind we are strictly speaking about the x64 flavors, not their x86 counterparts.

    I've been running Zemana for a couple of weeks on Windows 7 x64. I haven't really "tested" it, meaning I haven't thrown malware at it. It is perfectly stable though and it sometimes intercepts install routines, so it's actually noticing system changes :rolleyes:

    I think we'll see a Zemana x64 vs Spyshelter x64 vs Prevx x64 review next year.

    I was going to do a review of both, but Zemana didnt want to donate a license.

    I did. I have a license however I am saving it for future use. Once its activated time starts rolling and being Facebook based I wouldnt be able to get another for safe keeping.

    Does anyone have the SSL logger test program from Zemana?
    It's here among security tests, but when I try to download I get this message:
    I'm not asking for how the simulator works, just want to test it. If they're afraid of reverse engineering, then it would make no sense to put it on their website and make the impression it's available for download..

    That'ts weird becuase the SSL protection does not work on Spyshelter x64.
    The only thing that works in Zemana for x64 does not work in Spyshelter x64.

    Differences in how SpyShelter works under 32 and 64 bit systems
    The x64 edition:
    - Does not have Kernel Mode AntikeyLogger
    - Does not have AntiNetworkSpy module

    I asked about this to the Spyshelter dev and this is what he told me:

    What do they mean with that I wonder- hooking wininet.dll? If so, what about nspr4.dll for Firefox?

    I guess that this is for any dll it's does not matter. Protection against dll injection.

    Hmmm, i don't think so. If you want to stop SSL logging then you need to prevent the hooking of the dll's responsible...which I believe are wininet.dll for IE and nspr4.dll for Firefox. Not sure what Opera and Chrome use although I know Opera has its own crypto library.

    I can confirm that Guest is correct here.

    May I remind all Wilders Members that the subect is Spyshelter x64 vs Zemana x64 ONLY.

    If you have a comment, specific only to these two applications, do post. Thanks!

    I will go with Zemana. I know jmonge likes Spyshelter, but I honestly feel Zemana provides a better product and their support is very good. Long term. I think they are better prepared for enhancing their product.

    On x64 Zemana only provides SSL and cant even pass leak test tools.

    This is an excerpt from Zemana's Q and A.

    I understand, but I also realize they will continue to improve in that area.

    Of course they will, but whats the leader now? Im not trying to persuade you, but with something as serious as keyloggers stealing important information I think thats one area that you would want the top program at all times.

    I have never used Zemana so I cannot comment on which is better but I completely agree with trjam on his comment on Zemana's support cause just today I contacted them and they believe it or not responded under two minutes.:eek:

    Ive contacted Spyshelter and always had an email right away as well. Not really sure how an email from a customer service representative is related to the coding engineers behind the scenes producing a subpar x64 variant.
