    They do different things. MD is a HIPS that will alert you to low level keyboard access by applications. Keyscrambler encrypts your keystrokes. So I don't think there is a which is better, A versus B, answer. Use them both!

    I've asked this question many times and never got a clear answer: aren't AVs supposed to detect keyloggers? Something has to execute in order to install them, as far as I know nothing really installs silently.

    Enlighten me please!

    I think Keyscrambler encrypts your keystrokes when online. Nothing can read them. I don't think its an issue with Windows Vista/7 but it is an issue with Windows XP. Keyscramblor blocks keyloggers with encryption while Malware Defender prevents them from being installed though any anti-virus/malware software will also keep them off a PC.
