A Way To Stop The Keyloggers?

By | January 21, 2004

Here’s a program that may help you if you worried about the recent spate of viruses and phishing tricks that focus on keylogging — small, often invisible, programs that secretly capture what you type, especially when you’re entering passwords .

System Mechanic 4, a collection of software tools from iolo technologies, includes parasite-fighting tool called SpyHunter(TM) which “seeks and destroys annoying and dangerous spyware, malware, adware, and other notorious malevolent applications, plug-ins and ActiveX controls that fly under the radar of antivirus solutions”.

SpyHunter also “protect users from keyloggers”, although the press release I got doesn’t say how. I will check out the software and get back to you.

System Mechanic 4 Professional includes Panda Antivirus Platinum 7.0 antivirus and firewall, System Shield, Search and Recover, and DriveScrubber. There’s also a Popup Stopper tool, a disk defragmenter and something called NetBooster, which claims to speed up Internet connections by up to 300%. The whole kaboodle costs $70.
