    While i am pretty sure that my current setup will protect me from this nasty trojan I thought i would still ask in here for some opinions.

    I have just installed keyscrambler and it seems to be working okay so far on my xp setup in my signature.
    During a UK TV news article I did notice that this Gameover.Zeus banking trojan takes screenshots which i do not think i am protected from.

    Is there a free or one off fee security app that would prevent this from happening?

    I am aware of zemana and the other antilogger in the vs thread but they bsod my xp setup so i was hoping a simpler utility might keep the system stable and do the job?

    Suggestions please.

    Well I know DefenseWall will protect you from Malware trying to take screenshots and then some.
    not free but not expensive either.
    You use Xp, I assume it's 32-bit.
    It's kept me safe for several years now.

    You could simply go with the free Trusteer Rapport that cover both kernel keyloggers and screengrabbers

    DefenseWall is a Policy Based Host Intrusion Prevention System with a two way Firewall.

    I read some where maybe here? that rapport slows down the system.
    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    It slowed down browsing when I tried it, but not everyone reports that. If you want to try it make sure to check the compatibility list on the Trusteer website.

    http://www.trusteer.com/support/compatibility-other-security-software

    There's also a Rapport removal tool which you might want to get in advance in case you decide to remove it.

    Looking at other threads were trusteer is mentioned it conflicts with some security software.
    Since my XP (see sig) is multi layered I can see it being a pain.

    Many version has passed since some conflicts were reported. i.e. you will only know if it is a good choice if you actually try it. Most probably it will just work fine.
