    It will be interesting to see if KeyScrambler can defeat it once it,s installed!

    Keyscrambler personal defeats it. Installed keyscrambler in xp sp3 then installed powered keylogger 2.2. Using IE6 powered keylogger records nothing but random keystrokes.

    When I initially attempted to download the logger the other day it immediately triggered Avast due to the webshield being active. I did later that day disable Avast completely and then download the logger to my desktop. After enabling Avast again I was able to right click the logger and scan it with Avast which then alerted on it.

    I will disable the webshield by itself here in a few minutes and then attempt to download the logger again and see what happens. I will let you know what happens.

    With webshield disabled I was able to download the file to my desktop with no alert from Avast. However, if I either try to run the file or if I right click and scan it, then it is picked up by Avast.

    Hope this helps.

    Thx for testing, strange the write check of the standard module does not catch it, while scanner and webshield will catch it.

    SEP11 won't allow download. But as this thing has been around for years (look at what AV's it was tested against), God forbid if a current AV would allow it.

    Installed hidden files n driver are easily detected by a good antirootkit scanner. Gmer detects it for example. Also RootRepeal can catch it.

    I just downloaded it and KIS 2009 did not pick it up. What settings are you using?

    I also tried with Avira Premium and NIS 2009...both of them stopped the download.

    Settings/Threats and Exclusions/ under Threats go to settings and enable other programs in adware and other programs.
