    Could it be hardware failure?

    My personal approach would be:

    1) drop SpyShelter
    2) turn off FW in GData IS

    Privatefirewall is a great FW with HIPS. GData has good AV. I would use GData complete and uninstall Privatefirewall or as Siketa said disable GData's firewall and use Privatefirewall.

    already turned FW of gdata off.

    if I drop spyshelter what will I use for anti-keylogging?
    I actually would like an excuse to remove it as it plays up with firefox and flash plugin. Always stoppping flash from "setting hook to monitor network request" as it says in the logs.

    Is gdata firewall better than private firewall?

    to me it seems to have less flex than PF, but seems simpler. Does gdata FW have HIPS?

    Forticlient is one of the best Free Suites out there
    Light , and has a few basic tools such as Parental Control Firewall
    Vulnerability Control and Remote Access sort of VPN control or something ..
    Overall it is very nice for free:thumb: :thumb:

    You can drop SS and Keyscrambler.
    Use Zemana Antilogger Free instead for encryption of keystrokes.
    I think PF can recognize keyloggers.
    Please, correct me if I'm wrong.
