    Oh my god this tool is as old as the universe, fully sh*t, full of fps.
    I tested it one year ago, but I know it already since 1999,
    the sum of keylogger it found was about 330 (last year), thats nothing..,
    too less related to the big advertising mouth they have. I doubt that the bad results
    only came from the demo version I tested.

    Really, Spycop still seems like a useful tool to me. Not the only antikeylogger you would need, but still useful. But It does seem like Spycop is more geared to the average joe trying to detect a commercial keylogger put on his/her computer by another newb.

    And I agree detection of around 330 keyloggers does seem somewhat low. I did hear once that it can still detect a lot of commercial keyloggers because many of them use the same engine (rebranded) or something like that. I think a custom build is where you could have a real problem with Spycop.

    Thanks for the explanation LWM but the way the edit was done, makes it look by new viewers of the thread, that I was spamming and posting links to maleware.
    There are more then one company posted here that not only make anti-keyloggers but create commercial keylogging programs as well. I have always concidered even comercial keyloggers as maleware too. They don't see it that way however and neither do a lot of buisnesses.
    I guess I thought the link the guy posted was for commercial keyloggers.

    Indeed but the enhanced detection let us consider it as heuristic is very bad, partly it uses string scan method, very primitive, that will lead to mass fp´s.

    Has anyone here actually used this program and is happy with it? Just curious sence True North recomends this when there is a keylogging thread. Not saying it's no good sence I never tried it.Anyone?

    @ Lonewolf

    I don't know if this will help you, but I tried it a while back. It seems to be a half way decent program. Though I did have problems between AntiKeylogger and some other programs that hooked into the kernel. There seemed to be some kind of conflict between them and AntiKeylogger. Maybe that's been fixed now, I'm not sure.

    But I don't find a need for the program myself due to all the excellent HIPS programs around these days. With HIPS you can block a lot of keyloggers, hence no need for a antikeylogger, in most cases.

    You can also run a few of the free antikeyloggers that are around and save some cash. Like Neo's SafeKeys and My Planet Soft antikeylogger. These along with a decent HIPS should be a pretty good defense against being keylogged.

    Of course if you run into some real fancy custom build keylogger, your on your own.

    Yes, a real chaos tool this akl driver ruins the whole fonts of several apps, did you follow some of my posted screens, then take a look what it did with app defend 1.2 alpha. The driver really makes some apps useless it even managed to let my pc beeper play some absolutely new melodees and the prog crashed and failed to start on my system. I guess it´s the same as anti-keylogger 7.4, not better(even much worser related to stability) then process guard and worser then AAK 3.7.

    Lonewolf, this tool scratched my whole system, don´t install it except you have a good backup, that´s my advice. ;)
