    It should install at boot time, kernel level and control hook chain......

    Does it exist?

    This may not be the "BEST" solution (if it exists) however Antihook 3.0 has a very solid "framework" / "foundation".

    What I'm saying is it definitely won't detect all keylogging methods however it has the kernel-level "framework" that you desire. I'm sure that it would not be too hard implementing additional protection to block new keylogging methods - the hard part, aka the kernel level "framework" is already there.

    On a side note Antihook appears to be abandoned like System Safety Monitor. (It hasn't had updates in a while). When I tested it, it appeared to have failed the DFK Threat Simulator... :(

    I would probably use a password manager that automatically enters passwords if I were really concerned about keyloggers.

    Here are the links to AntiHook:

    Why Microsoft didn't provide a simple operating system level check in the keyboard driver?

    hi chris, have you seen what privacy keyboard did with my system? (as I tested it once)
    Want to get an example?

    I could show you a load of other software that privacy keyboard mutates when installed.

    SystemJunkie your a little over my head. Is this a bad thing or good thing? For my purposes it worked great as I could not find a keylogger that it let capture anything. It was 100% good for me. But now not vista compat.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Good question, I don´t know if that is good or bad, rather bad, because most software was not more usable, but maybe that was a sign for a superior infection and maybe that was priv.keyboard´s method of preventing that, who knows.. or simply incompat. problem of unknown kind.

    Service unavalaible.
    It seems Antihook3 is dead.

    Anti-Hook by InfoProcess
    http://www.infoprocess.com.au/AntiHook.php

    Service Unavailable

    is a shame it's been allowed to go idle, i still keep a copy of the sample they released as free and i if needed it would always suppliment any other apps in a supporting role on that old version alone.

    As for as kernel-level anti-keylogging apps i'm afraid those make up part of some HIPS now, dunno of any real single featured ones except for snoopfree maybe.

    Blutarsky use kguardmgr, some times ago there was a link to this cool kernel mode anti-keylogger it blocks all Antikeylogger Tester 3 methods.

    here is your link
    Predecessor of fire lion AKL. Actually only comodo and kguard can block all known methods. PrivacyKeyboard destabilizes the whole windows system and blocks many buttons and memos in usual apps, not recommendable.

    hi according to the info on the link you gave kguard is not a anti keylogger program for protecting you against keyloggers, but instead it is a program for testing your defences against keyloggers.

    arran if it intercepts aklt it should intercept other keyloggers too,
    test it and tell us more.
