    I came across the following thread which mentions an Anti-Keylogger app.

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=117101

    Since AD has an option to allow/dis-allow apps from using keylogging techniques, I was wondering how effective AD's keylogger blocking ability will be ?

    Will it be able to block all keylogger techniques ?

    I would think so,as they need to execute,install drivers/hooks etc. which AD would catch :) .

    AppDefend's "KEYLOGGING" protection as in the item you can see in the configuration screen does nothing at this stage. AppDefend does protect against some keyloggers that use global hooks, and also by blocking potential kernel mode drivers which may use advanced keylogging methods.
