    Maybe posts some real links instead of some vague quotes without an actual source?

    Do they play games online via browser?In that case it probably true what you described.
    Games installed on the PC are not affected here .I use the free version on my gaming PC.

    Thanks for the links. :) But the people in that thread are even more vague as a source. ;)

    I'm not a Key Scrambler users btw, because I find the whole idea of protecting a selected group of programs complete nonsense. Either protect all or protect nothing.

    Hmm, when I think about this, I find this actually not really surprising. Since it only protects a selected group of programs, I reckon it's also really depended on version changes over time within those programs as well. If a protected program gets a version bump and things change to much, then it might break compatibility with KeyScrambler also. Hence you loose protection and get a false sense of security.

    What problems to be more clear?
    Do you have the free version?
    If so are there any other problems that you are experiencing besides the ability to play online games through browser if u are using the free version?
    I went to miniclip.com to test and i have to disable it to play games there but for me it's not important since i play PC games.

    I'm not sure how this can affect the browsing speed,i don't see nothing here.Anyway to bad it's not working for you ,i find the program useful

    Me either, Miniclip included. The ONLY issue I ever had was uninstalling it the last time I used it. It screwed my keyboard badly and I had to reinstall the old default driver from the Windows CD. Now that I'm using it again, I'm too scared to uninstall it, lol.
