    So what are the differences between Zemana and KeyScrambler, I mean when it gets to the heart of it, aren't they basically the same, keyboard encryption to protect against keyloggers?

    I use KeyScrambler now, I like that it's light weight and seems to do what it's suppose to, encrypt my key strokes, not sure I need much more, or do I?


    THANKS

    this one would belong better in the anti-malware section but anyway...

    i have Zemana and i think it's a very good app.
    i also think it's too expensive, IMO.

    anyway, Keyscrambler encrypt your keystrokes.

    Zemana protect against many types of logging.
    it also has system defense.

    in short, Zemana offers a wider range of protection than Keyscrambler does.

    Theirs a huge difference between the 2, Keyscrambler only protects against keystrokes getting read, and unless you buy the premium or pro version, it will only protect IE, Firefox, & Flock, nothing more, Zemana or SpyShelter helps prevent a keylogger from being installed in the first place, and or if you may have a keylogger infection before using zemana or spyshelter will protect against Clipboard Loggers, Screen Loggers, Webcam Loggers ect.

    But if you think your infected I would advise on doing a scan with Malwarebytes or Superantispyware to get rid of the Keylogger/infection.

    Users usually infect themselves by using Cracks, Keygens, Patches/ Pirated Software, funny how the Warez forums will tell you its just a False Positive, when in reality their waiting for you to install their crap so they can take advantage of your machine.

    SpyShelter has a free 32bit version, the 64bit version you pay a 1 time fee of $31 USD, or if you want you can buy the premium 32bit version if you want the extra features, but one can render his machine unusable if they don't know how to reply to the alerts, then you would have to boot in safemode or from a liveCD ect to delete it from the program folder in order to get your machine to boot again properly, unlike zemana's simplicity, I think spyshelter is better suited for advanced users, or install it with a more advanced user present so they can apply all the rules for first time alerts a regular user may get confused with.

    Well I'm using Emsisoft's Anti-Malware & Comodo Firewall, so maybe installing Zemana is a bit overkill and just to protect the keyboard KeyScrambler is good enough...

    I hope I didn't make SpyShelter seem too confusing, if you feel your machine is clean you should be able to allow all of the popups after you install it, or use it in install mode for awhile so it can learn which apps you use, but it is very useful, it blocked all but 2 of CLTs tests (Comodo Leak Test), I definatly give it a plus, and recommend it as an addition to your security arsenal, it doesnt take hardly any resources, and the best part is its free unlike zemana.

    Although, Comodo Internet Security 2011 passed everything from the leak test when configured properly!

    No, Keyscrambler does not protect the Clipboard, Even if you have the Pro or Premium editions, Keyscrambler only scrambles Typed text, nothing more nothing less

    Well now I'm playing with AppGuard instead of Comodo Firewall.

    With AppGuard installed I don't see how there's going to any chance of a keylogger getting installed, this makes me think with this little app there's no need...

    Any thoughts here on AppGuard?
