    I just tested Ghostpress 2.2 on two separate Windows 10 PCs and the taskbar still gets trapped behind maximized windows. SumatraPDF, a freeware PDF reader, is one example. Ghostpress appears to be extremely sensitive to taskbar behavior, which is highly unusual. I've tested hundreds of apps on W10 and the only other times I've experienced this bug is if a game crashes, or forced to close via task manager. Perhaps it doesn't play nice with one of ClassicShell, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, or ShellFolderFix?

    I think what makes Ghostpress interesting is that it doesn't rely on a driver, but this may also be its weakness. I'm afraid that I can't consider Ghostpress and LMT Anti Logger to be serious alternatives for SpyShelter, at the moment.

    I have tested GhostPress and I was kinda impressed, it seems to work correctly. But is it true that it doesn't use global hooking anymore? It seems like it has switched to recording keyboard input, is this correct? So I have to take my words back, it's a great solution for machines were you can't install drivers because you don't have any admin rights.

    I can't move in GzDoom with this installed, how do I exclude a process?

    Interesting maybe, but reliable is questionable without a driver to enforce/enhance it's purpose.

    Different program but on analogy regarding drivers Secure Folders comes fresh to mind. It would not still be regarded whatsoever even after long abandoned if not for the driver which makes it's protection reasonably accepted.

    And just WORKS!

    The thing is, I believe the goal of the developer was the make an anti-logger that is portable and doesn't need any admin rights. You can't do this with drivers. So it's handy to have if you need to work on PC's that you don't own.
