    I don't encounter any slowdowns with Keyscrambler installed. The only problem I ever have is when I try to type a word and it comes out in gibberish because it forgets to decrypt it but this doesn't happen very often. I suggest you get more RAM since RAM is cheap now :) Keyscrambler.exe uses 8.5MB of memory on my comp. When tested with AKLT, it passes all keylogger tests.

    The only problem I have encountered is that sometimes when your application or webpage isn't done loading yet, everything you type in is showed encrypted somehow. The only way to avoid this it to simply wait another few seconds until you start typing.

    There have been some issues when Keyscrambler is running alongside Sandboxie...For me they haven't been completely resolved yet (I'm using Sandboxie 3.31.22)
    Keyscrambler works ok ,The problem is when opening a sandboxed browser Sandboxie gives an error message box but then Keyscrambler works after that.

    I do find a slowdown at the point of opening a browser sometimes, it occasionaly takes ages to open...gets "glued up" a bit.
    That happens not consistantly but at various times.

    Keyscrambler forgets that it's on now and again when entering text into a box and sometimes the app that should be protected (you see unencrypted text) isn't until you just single click on the tray icon..seems to wake it up.
    Apart from those issues which are mildly irritating Keyscrambler seems to work quite well (as far as I know or can see)

    The version of Sandboxie that I am running at the moment is the best with Keyscrambler up to now... I can't give anything other than a layman/ordinary users comment.
    If those few small things were ironed out I'd be perfectly happy.
    Sandboxie is a great program and a work in progress... Keyscrambler doesn't seem to be quite as "stable".

    Running great, no slowdown at all, the issue of the encrypted text appearing sometimes is present here too.

    Apart from those very occasional,little problems mentioned above by evilscribble and emperordarius the free version works fine here and without any slowdowns alongside password programs and Geswall.

    Great add-on. Waiting for the free version that is compatible with Firefox 3.1.

    I thought KeyScrambler personal (free) was already compatible with all versions 3.
    I run FF 3.0.3 for which I cant find updates right now and KS works fine,am I using the wrong version or am I missing anything?

    I can only agree with previous posters, Keyscrambler works very good and there is no slowdown at all when using it (atleast not for me). I`ve also had the issue with the encrypted text being present when a webpage isn`t finished loading but other than this it works like a charm;)

    oops! my bad,then!
    I have to try it,in order to find out why and how it is so intrinsecally different from previous very near versions as to prevent KS running.
