    mebbe this question is in the wrong section...sorry.

    But I just upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 and my prosecurity software goes nuts with notices telling me that ie8 is logging my keystrokes.

    Any click on my keyborad generates the balloon message:

    ................................................................
    Prosecurity Notification

    Iexplore.exe was blocked from logging keystroke.
    ................................................................

    Can this be considered "normal behavior" for IE8...and can i allow it confidence.

    What version prosecurity is it? Is it still being developed? i suspect that is false positive and IE8 should be allowed

    Hi, i can't confirm/deny what IE8 is doing, as i don't use it. But people might be surprised just how many "normal" apps utilise similar tactics. Here's only a few examples that Zemana on my comp alerts to, there are a lot more !
