    As I think my pc is relatively secure I don't feel the need to use Keyscrambler on my pc. But I think it would be much more useful if I'm using others' pc.

    Is there a portable anti-keylogger program?

    Not too sure on this one.

    I know for increased security/privacy while browsing on another computer, there is sandboxie portable you could use with say firefox portable.

    Note - you can't use this if you have sandboxie already locally installed.

    You could also use a portable version of a-squared's hijackfree, which will list all running processes, so you can shutdown anything running that doesn't appeal to you. :)

    Is there available some non-portable versions of hijackfree, that is btw an excellent free app? And if so, why would someone would not prefer to use the fully featured free portable release?

    OK. Portable sandboxie is a good idea,it can't stop keylogger though.

    The portable version of hijackfree is a stand alone exe. Wherever it loads from, it sets up a sub folder 'hijackfree' where the configuration settings are stored, and a folder called 'quarantine'.

    The normal version comes with a languages folder, all the sub folders under one single 'a-squared hijackfree', and I might be wrong, but it seems to load 'slightly' faster.

    Not much between them at all! (I might be wrong)

    Keyloggers aim to not be detected. Don't know if it would work, but think your best bet is to fire-up hijackfree, check the running processes, and the autoruns, see if something is loading up on start-up.

    Thanks for this info, Saraceno. And here I have always only used the handy standalone version.
