    :thumb: Good news - pleased to hear, LMT!

    Haven't tried it (yet), but was sorry to see you stopping development (post #49).

    OK thanks.

    Can you tell me what the negative comments are about? I personally think you should focus purely on the behavior blocking part. No need for buzzwords like AI and Safe Shopping, and no need for a password manager. Just make sure you can block the same stuff as SpyShelter, and it should be "driver based" blocking. BTW, your new website looks good, but I don't like the dynamic loading.

    I think these are all useful features. My app uses Virustotal to identify malware, so using AI will help increase the ability to detect them. Safe Shopping can help protect against most keyloggers and Password Manager too.

    Yes...it can be but AI technology is still a bit exotic and unknown for most of users and result of its work is sometime invisible?...hidden?...not enough documented?

    The thing is, we already got enough password managers and safe browsers, no need to reinvent the wheel. I would stick to the anti-logger part. Also, did you test ransomware against LMT?

    And it's not clear to me what exactly "safe shopping" means, how do you protect the browser? And no need to use buzzwords like AI, simply because VirusTotal uses some engine with AI, this will make people skeptical.

    I would focus on blocking malware from capturing screen, keyboard, clipboard, mic and webcam. Als, auto blocking of inbound and outbound connections would be nice. And don't forget about monitoring for "code injection" including global hooking. And lastly, monitoring for service/driver installation.

    Yes, you can watch here: youtu.be/nx9SVmDpFGg
    Yes, but what if the file has not been uploaded to Virustotal yet? Because the time to upload and receive results from Virustotal is not fast, so my software only uploads when the exe file has been executed. AI will be useful in this case, my model is trained with a dataset of nearly 200,000 exe files, it can detect malware.
    This feature will open the browser in secure desktop, which can help prevent most common keyloggers.
    Actually, my software has a Basic Firewall, which will notify when an untrusted application tries to access the internet, and allow users to block that application from accessing the internet.
    Yes, they are all in my todo list. Hopefully I have time to develop them

    OK cool, but I didn't become clear to me. Is it correct that ransomware couldn't access protected folders?

    My mistake, I thought it was related to VirusTotal, but you have developed your own system. The thing is, AI is quite complex, so people might be skeptical.

    What browser does it open in secure desktop, the default browser I assume? And what is protected in secure desktop, I mean is it comparable to what Avast offers for example?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avast_Secure_Browser

    OK cool, is it independent of Win Firewall?

    Yes
    It is a Chromium-based browser version. In secure desktop, I think most keyloggers will not be able to record the keyboard nor take screenshots.
    My app will use Windows Firewall to block them access to internet.

    OK thanks. BTW, I still don't understand, do you include a browser with LMT AL?

    No, my app will open a browser in secure desktop. You can read more about secure desktop here: security.stackexchange.com/questions/3759/how-does-the-windows-secure-desktop-mode-work

    Hi LeMinhThanh! Having just tried your product yesterday, I can honestly say that it has some really good potential. It seems to very good at what it aims to do, which is keeping a system secure. That being said, I'd like to offer some (hopefully) constructive criticism.

    • It's very heavy; both in space required as well as ram/cpu usage. I attribute the former to the use of AI and the latter to on-access resident scanning via VT. Is there some way to optimize that process in a way that will not create lag?
    • The focus of the app seems to be all over the place. I would streamline it a bit. There's a password manager, anti-logger, safe shopping, firewall, as well as anti-exectutable and anti-malware components. Are those all needed? If I had your skill I would remove the safe shopping, firewall and browser components and focus on what matters most; the anti-logger, anti-exectutable and anti-malware. A firewall is not needed, since it's built-in to the OS.
    • The biggest change that I would make, that I think would have the most impact on the most amount of users is to add a learning mode that auto-whitelists for X amount of time. That way, if you know you're system is clean, you can just enable that mode and everything that is running will be whitelisted/exceptioned, so that it does not conflict with LTM Anti-logger. This could be particularly useful with programs like Sandboxie.'
    But, like I said, this is great software. I can't wait to see what improvements you make next!

    Hi,
    LMT Anti Logger uses a lot of RAM because of the software source code protection method, I will find a way to improve it.
    When I tested on my computer, Windows Firewall did not seem to notice when an application connected to the internet, so I built this Basic Firewall feature :3
    Thanks for your suggestions, I will add this feature in the next version

    I ve tried it myself, some versions ago, and it felt ok -light, on an AMD AM1 - 4 core CPU - Jaguar cores, with 4 gigs of RAM, on an older W10 build.
    What is your current hardware configuration ?

    Crash dump.

    Code:
    System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException
      HResult=0x80131501
      Message=The invocation of the constructor on type 'LMT_Anti_ScreenLogger.MainWindow' that matches the specified binding constraints threw an exception.
      Source=<Cannot evaluate the exception source>
      StackTrace:
    <Cannot evaluate the exception stack trace>
    
    Inner Exception 1:
    Exception: Keyboard layout is not supported at the moment.
    This is NOT the developers fault. It does not work on computers using Norwegian Bokmål (keyboard layout: NOB) Probably because of these letters: Æ, Ø and Å.

    Suggestion for the developer (if possible): support letters A-Z and ignore letters that are not recognized.

    I'd be happy to come back and try it again if you add support in the future. Thanks & keep up the good work :thumb:

    Hi, could you show me how to type Norwegian Bokmål. I will reproduce that bug.

    And how does this sandbox exactly work on a technical level? Is it comparable to Sandboxie?
