    Do you guys think its wise to have both KIS and KS running?
    I dont know much about KIS's keylogger blocking so installed both at the moment.

    Try Prevx Safe Online free http://www.prevx.com/safebook.asp
    Or trusteer rapport
    Both are much better, and protect against much more things than KS for browsing protection.
    KIS already offers a general anti logger protection based on it's own HIPS

    In KIS2012:

    Go to Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Threats & Exclusions -> Adware, auto-dialers, other programs -> Enable Other box.

    Regards.

    "Some people" are wrong. Read the latest Malware Research Group Online Banking Security Test reports and you'll see KIS failing. As Lordraiden says, try either PSO or Trusteer Rapport.

    Go to General settings in KIS and uncheck Select action automatically then go to Application control and uncheck Trust applications with digital signature.

    This is a paranoid way but its very effective against keyloggers and other bad stuff.;)

    Actually, I'd argue that it's very ineffective. Suddenly you're in pop-up hell, and can quite quickly become 'Allow' weary. Chances of allowing through malware in such circumstances?....high for many people.

    It depends on the user, like in most cases and there isnt that much popups, just if the user is installing or uninstalling apps all the time. On regular activities, like browsing or gaming... minimal popups.

    That allows KIS to detect legal keylogging applications via signatures. IMO with that unchecked there's no need to uncheck "Trust applications with digital signature" from Application Control and Proactive Defense.

    Also, with KIS 2012, don't forget to enable Keylogger detection from Proactive Defense.
