Keystroke tracker

are there any programs which secretly monitor your keystrokes when you are online etc? If so, what are they?

I wont go into detail what the situation is, but lets just say its to help a mate out with his flatmate.....

Thanks!

oh this might be interesting

is this to track passwords????? pin numbers???

You can get keylogger's in the form of software or hardware.
The software runs on the computer startup and from then logs every keystroke. However, the free one's are often not completely invisible and run from within the system tray (but still password protected so it can't be turned off).
The hardware consists of a usb/ps2 (depending on your keyboard) device to which you plug your keyboard into and it logs the keystrokes into it's own memory.
I've never used either so I can't recommend any or say which way is better I'm afraid.

Be careful if you're using this s/w on other people if caught you could get into a lot of trouble.

If you're trying to catch someone out who's not too savvy then they will probably not be inclined to take action. But if you were to obtain a persons online bank login details and get caught you could find yourself or whoever in a very precarious position.

You are really better with a hardware one as the anti-virus may pick it up and alert the flatmate, also disabling the anti-virus part that detects it leaves the pc open to keyloggers from the net! scan.co.uk/Pro…519

Speaking of which Ive made the mother of all boo-boo's today as I re-installed windoze last night and meant to re-install the security this morning, I forgot and have used the laptop for about 4 hours with no protection, luckily it's escaped the nasties!
