    How do keyloggers work? I know what they do, but not how they do it. Do they function by any of the below methods?

    write to application's memory
    create remote thread
    create hidden window
    install global hook
    modify child process
    direct memory access
    critical registry modification
    send message to another application
    control process
    control system services

    I ask because I recently decided to switch from LnS to Jetico and I wanted to know if I am protected. JPF can protect from the above, but when I tried this test I wasn't alerted at all.

    See this wikipedia article. You can also use AKLT to test your security programs.
