    Very neat little thingy!

    They have sth wrong in the manual:
    I can't unselect all the options, one option must always be selected, at least in my case :p

    So I have it in tray, cause overlay window flashes in my face and scares me :)

    I believe an anti-keylogger is a necessary component in a layered defense. I don't use KIS though, so I don't know if it already includes anti-keylogger technology.

    I do use KeyScramber - it works as advertised and gets along with my other apps.

    Isn't it correct that KeyScrambler should be not be run as an isolated application in a program like DefenseWall or GeSWall? :)

    I have been running KeyScrambler Pro for about 18 months now. Appears to do its thing well and gets on fine with all my other programmes. Quite happy with it.

    Can KeyScrambler be used in combination with Roboform ? or are they competing to do the same job ? has anyone used both ?

    Thanks - I will take a look at the demo. will be interesting to see what you mean by "they are not doing the same job". when I use Roboform to enter bank or credit card details using a mouse I have no idea I thought I was trying to protect this sensitive data from a possible key logger and that KeyScrambler was doing the same thing for those who used a keyboard rather than a mouse.

    From what I have read so far - once installed KeyScrambler produces no performance hit ? and is fairly invisible ?

    The only thing I don't like is that KeyScrambler doesn't work in all programs, and is somewhat limited in the programs it supports.

    I use the premium version.
    I really like the way it protects almost every application I use. But I think there might be better anti logger solutions. Those who also protect against webcam logging or screen capture logging.

    Alternates for anti-key loging or anti-web cam/ screen loging?

    as I've never had any problems I'm not sure that I really need any of these protections ? If I did I would have thought I would want protection against any method of stealing my data ? I thought KeyScrambler might be worth trying but now wonder if Zemana might be better. or something else ?

    Good classical HIPS software should protect you against keyloggers.

    Yes HIPS makes sense BUT I don't want to be sucked into overkill. In all probability I will continue without any additional security protection. I thought it might be interesting to look at some sort of Anti Keylogging but would only be interested if there is minimal bloat and zero performance impact.

    I've been using Keyscrambler for about a week now. I've noticed zero performance hit on my aging Pentium 4 system. I do have 2 GB of ram though. I like the software. My only complaint is that I think it should apply to the entire system - not just chosen apps.

    I was wondering though, what are the odds that somebody has already cracked the encryption?

    Just fire up Returnil, install a free keylogger from majorgeeks.com, open Firefox and type a few passwords (they dont have to be your real passwords). Make a copy of the keylogger logs and make a game of it with your family - see who can get the correct words fastest. :rolleyes:

    Cool, maybe they should make it say "Nice Try *******!" or something like that :).
