    its from QFX software right? and i installed the latest one and it shows up on the top left hand cornor in green whenever i type and in the tray icon it goes to yellow when i click outside firefox, that is normal right? and keyscrambler is suppose to install on your computer as well right( like it shows up in add/remove programs not just in the add ons in firefox)

    i thought usually addons for firefox just install in the browser and dont install on the computer, but keyscrambler seems to install on the computer? anyreason for that? like its in the add/remove programs is that normal?

    Keyscrambler premium looks like it covers a lot of programs (they say 130). What happens when you upgrade a program like Firefox or Opera? Does that mean you need a new version of Keyscrambler to cover the new versions?

    I would really love something like Keyscrambler if it covered every program, including all versions.

    ye ive been wishing it wuld be a system wide program instead of working on a per application basis, hinders the product a lot.

    I have an issue with Key Scrambler, and couldn't locate a thread which dealt with it. There are time when Key Scrambler shows encryption in the actual fields where I am typing...like, doing its job backward.
    Any thoughts, or direction on this?

    I am using KeyScrambler Premium.

    I have upgraded Firefox & Opera to newer version a couple of times, KeyScrambler still works.

    sometimes "doing its job backward". Yep, that's an accurate description of what I too encountered.
    Yes, other threads reporting problems exist, here in the Wilders forum and elsewhere.

    Thoughts or direction?
    The standalone QFX keyscrambler is redundant with the keyscrambler feature provided by various security apps like Kaspersky Internet Security 2010, Outpost Firewall Pro (Or Outpost suite) and I believe even the Kerio firewall app includes a comparable (driver level) anti-keylogger feature.
