Win10 is being accused of spying on what we type.

So if I use an AntiLogger Software like Zemana, can Windows still record the original keystrokes or not?

Edit:
I read in Zemana AntiLogger website that it "Encrypts keystrokes".

So my question is can Windows still read the original keystrokes or it can read only the encrypted keystrokes?

No, I don't think so because the behavior is not comparable to a malware and Zemana recognizes Windows.
Let us not forget, however, that all versions of Windows have features regarding your privacy.
Even Windows 98 had privacy issues with Internet Explorer...

The difference is that with Windows 10, Microsoft unashamedly admits this.

Zemana for contractual conditions may not recognize Windows as malware.

I can understand what you are saying. Zemana won't consider Windows services as malware.

But I think you don't understand my question. Ill rephrase my questions,

Can Windows services record the original keystrokes if I use Zemana AntiLogger which encryptes keystrokes by default (irrespective of whether a malware is detected or not).

I understand your question but for me Zemana AntiLogger can't encryptes Windows keystrokes if there is not a real keylogger.

Under normal circumstances windows should not be able to read what you have actually typed since zenama installs its own driver and services...

Edit: Someone can correct me if i am wrong since i don't know how zenama exactly works. :p

Good question, Sloth. How Zemana regards Windows should be irrelevant to this, because the encryption feature of Zemana is supposed to be on all the time and to have nothing to do with whether Zemana has any whiff of malware. I think it would be good to pose the question in a Zemana forum if nobody here can answer it definitively. I would guess Zemana should be thwarting Windows' keylogging.

Spy Shelter's pro version also encrypts everything you type, but I don't believe its free version does. You can also get encryption as far as browser-related typing goes from the ZenMate extension, available for Opera and the Gecko and Chromium families.

I'll try to explain better.

Mine is not a technique motivation because technically Zemana crypt everything you type on the keyboard and a possible keylogger would just useless data.
Windows 10 apparently reads and sends what you type on the keyboard.
Microsoft knows that there are software such as Zemana Antilogger that could cancel this data collection and gain.
Definitely agreements were made to prevent this from happening.
Let us not forget that in defrag.exe of older versions of Windows was a Backdoor obviously never detected by any AV and it is disturbing to know that the source is The register ...

So Zemana did a deal with Microsoft so it still gets the information unencrypted is that right?
