    Hi,

    Since my subscription to Spycop is close to is end, I was wondering if we really need a specialize keylogger scan like Spycop anymore?
    Doesn't NOD32, Boclean, Counterspy 2.1 to name a few catch everything that can catch Spycop?

    Thanks,
    Atomas31

    Who's "we"? All of us computer security geeks who have nine (or more) different programs controlling every aspect of our computers' security? All of "we" to whom "safe hex" is an ingrained part of our being?

    I still have SpyCop (and run full scans with it whenever it updates) - and I re-subscribe when it runs out. I also still recommend it for people who are not security-savvy, or those who (for whatever reason) think they may be the victims of key-logging by people with access to their computers.

    It's a very user-friendly program, the support is excellent and near-instantaneous and the "subscription" costs less per year than what I spend for coffee at work per week.

    All the major heavy-hitters of keylogging are still out there - and their main customer-base audience is still people with physical access to someone else's computer.

    And people are still buying their programs, or they'd have gone out of business, wouldn't they?

    Do what you want - I'll be keeping and using SpyCop indefinitely. And continuing to recommend it highly where applicable. Pete

    PrivacyKeyboard - real time (in addition to it I have Cyberhawk - it might help)
    SpyCop - on demand

    I renew my subscription to SpyCop regularly and do scans 2-3 times a week.
    I wouldn't rely on any AV or AS as protection from keyloggers. It's not their primary job ("jack of all trades, master of none", as they say).
