    I have recently found out that several, or maybe most antivirus/antispyware products intentionally ignore commercial keyloggers. I would like to know if this is also the policy of Prevx? Or does Prevx protect against all known keyloggers, with no acceptions?

    It's my understanding that Prevx does detect commercial monitoring software. :thumb:

    Yes we do - and as a bit of proof (for myself and anyone who doubts a company spokesman :D):

    "In a parallel test using commercial keyloggers in place of actual malware, Prevx detected 90 percent of the threats, the same as Webroot and more than any other product" - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2346868,00.asp

    Excellent! Thanks for verifying this. This is good to know. I have CSI but had not up upgraded to the newer version, but I will most certainly be doing so now. Thanks
