    I downloaded the free trial but don't see an option where you can have it run in the background in real time or not. Is it just simply a scanner and not a monitoring software to detect and eliminate a keylogger once it sneaks into my computer? Do I need to install it in my startup folder for it to run in the background upon Windows booting up?

    I have noticed that Keylogger Killer, which I've yet to try, seems to monitor in the background and not just simply a scanner. It's cheaper software but I understand that it may not have as large of a Spyware database.

    Thanks! Jeff

    i havent heard of either of those. but you gotta watch out for some of those prgs. they sometimes put their own spyware in there. there is a list, cant remember where, someone should know and post the link here for you, of suspicious stuff to stay away from. id look there before slapping anything on your puter. i found the one from another forum but i dont have the link to the actual site it came from. im sure it updated a bit from this one.

    ah i found it:

    R2D2 - SpyCop (the main program itself) isn't designed to run resident - you don't want to add it to your start-up folder, as it's an on-demand scanner.

    Lots of info here: http://spycop.com/faq.htm

    I've been a registered owner for years, and am totally happy with both the program itself and its' maker's excellent technical support. It isn't spyware.
