    Hello,

    I'm fairly new to what seems to be a security hobby. Currently my syste, consists of the K-Meleon browser, Comodo personal firewall (with Defence+ off - it causes major system problems for me) and Avira personal firewall (free).

    I downloaded a fake keylogger application from these forums (specifically from this link) and was dissapointed to see my keys being logged away without Avira taking notice.

    Could someone provide some guidance as to what (preferably freeware) application would be appropriate for me to use in preventing this sort of malware? All I'm aware of is ThreatFire which apparently failed to block the keylogger app. I do use Sandboxie occasionally but prefer not to depend on it all the time.

    Thanks for your guidance.

    I use Keyscrambler (free) but don't know how it would work with your browser.

    Careful the hobby doesn't turn into an obsession! LOL.
    Winpatrol added key logger protection/detection for free. www.winpatrol.com
    Also see my sig...:thumb:

    I understand your disappointment in ThreatFire. After all ThreatFire is a suspicious behavior blocker and logging your keystrokes IS a suspicious behavior. I would even say that keyloggers are one of the most dangerous threats. So something is still very wrong with ThreatFire. The logic of the user is often stronger than the logic of the developper. :)

    GesWall (free) for your browser, I believe it handles keyloggers very well and works well with CPF and Avira.
