    Right now I'm using Keyscrambler Free, but I'm thinking about enhancing my protection for this vector with a paid product. A few of the options I'm looking at are Keyscrambler Premium and Spyshelter.

    It seems like Spyshelter provides a few more features (clipboard, screenshot protection), and a HIPS (system protection). I wonder if some of this stuff would be overlap with my existing Comodo HIPS though?

    I'd appreciate some good, objective feedback about these products and any others I haven't mentioned too.

    If you have comodo you are good to go.. you can just use sol or rapport(both free) for ur browser protection against the loggers

    Are you looking for system wide protection (i.e. anti-logger protection for anything you type/copy in any application on your p.c.) or protection just for your secure https sessions, e.g. online banking?

    I'm using Comodo Defense+ HIPS and Emsisoft Mamutu behavioral blocker, seems to be a good combo. And yeah you can add browser based protection like Trusteer Rapport etc.

    Keyscrambler premium does a very good job on protecting commecial keylogger, you can see the test on raymond.cc blog

    I like spyshelter better since it has lifetime subscription and also wider protection range. It has hips that work nice. But that would means overlap with comodo

    In the end if comodo is a must, just add keyscrambler premium.
    Although I see some member use both comodo + spyshelter without any problem

    System wide. I see that Keyscrambler Premium encrypts just about any keystroke you'll ever make: Win Logon, Office docs, password managers, online gaming, ect... As others have said though if something was trying to log my keystrokes, or capture the screen, D+ would let me know anyway. So encrypting my keystrokes may be moot.

    I don't do online banking, but I do online purchasing (Ebay, Amazon, Paypal), and like to be safe.

    Spyshelter is very affordable. That caught my eye too. Is that KS Premium price only for 1 year? If so that's pretty steep.

    Neo’s SafeKeys. It’s a free portable virtual keyboard. When it’s open it also blocks screen logging and averts clipboard logging by using drag and drop. -http://www.aplin.com.au/-

    he of course would be happy to contact Kaspersky about it and let them investigate (fix if necessary) his claims.

    i don't think he will do that :) because he is a Hacker

    anyway if i could get a sample i will of course upload it to Kaspersky team
    But i don't think he will trust me enough to give The Keylogger to Me

    Yup KS has yearly subscription

    For system wide you have several option : spyshelter,zemana,mamutu.
    KS only work on selected software

    Once I run OA (keylogger protection on)+ Mamutu + Spyshelter + keyscrambler free for firefox :argh:

    Trusteer Rapport is free, and they are partners with major banks, including eBay, Paypal, and B of A, so I think you can trust them. See this thread for proof that Rapport works.

    Up to a point. D+ doesn't cover all keylogging angles. For more info there's plenty of threads about D+ failing the Spyshelter tests over at the Comodo forum.

    I would recommend either Zemana or Spyshelter but you already have a HIPS so you have to be careful running two HIPS together. People will say "hey I run them together and they work fine", but it's impossible to know for certain, so it's best avoided if you can. One possible way round this is to turn off the HIPS components in Spyshelter or Zemana, leaving just the anti-logger capabilities.

    If you can do without the system wide protection and just opt for browser protection then Rapport would be a reasonable choice - but make sure to amend all the settings to provide full protection on not only their partner website but also the websites you manually add.

    Of course, if you're confident you won't get infected in the first place with D+ you don't need additional keylogger protection :)

    I have been using Spy shelter Premium and to date has done a great job for me, no problems. This is a paid version due to 64 bit on my laptop:D

    Prevx has been one of the best for detecting, and removing keyloggers for the past several years. I would expect even better results now that Webroot has combined SpySweeper's data base with Prevx in the cloud. SpySweeper has consistently been ranked as the #1 or #2 holder for detecting, and removing keyloggers on PC World's test despite it's heavy resource usage in comparison to Prevx. In those same test by PC World SpySweeper even tested better in some areas such as removal than Prevx. It seemed like these 2 always were neck, and neck for the #1 slot. We will soon have the best of both Worlds rolled into one product. The name for the product has not been set in stone yet. It was called Webroot SecureAnyWhere, and now it's being called Webroot Cloud AV. The new product is going to offer so many different features & technologies rolled into one product that it's hard to come up with a name that's worthy of it's unique one of a kind malware solution. No other product has ever offered such a solution that is compatible to run along beside your current choice of internet security applications to further enhance what security solution you already have. As far as I know it will be the first product to offer a third party firewall compatible with all other third party firewalls. It truly could be one of the most amazing products ever released. This is nothing new to us here at Wilders though since Prevx has always taken the approach to make their software compatible with all other security vendors. So far Prevx has been very prompt in responding to any feedback or bug reports I have sent them. I'm on vacation right now, and I can't wait to tinker with it some more when I get back. I guess that's kinda bad when i'm suppose to be relaxing on vacation right now lol
