Ok, There is my review of Spyshelter Premium 8 (SSP)

Home
Features

0- Installation

One interesting thing, is when you install it , it ask you if you want it start with high or normal security after the reboot.

SSP sit on my system between 20-30mb WS of RAM, i don't feel any visible slowdown.



1- Protection Tab

Spyshelter is an Anti-Keylooger and also an HIPS, here we can see the various protection modules, SSP, it share the common protection with other products but where it is innovative is the "Anti-sound module" that protect your system against VOIP sound Trojan loggers and other sound capture.
Note: the kernel module is only for x86 systems


2- Rules tab

Here is the place where the rules will be shown, you can allow/deny/check/add/edit/remove them ,you can also import/export some rules, clean old ones (from uninstalled programs) and check all component and details of them, i like the Virus Total integration, when a process is allowed/denied, you can upload the file to it.


3- Log tab

Here is shown all the decision made by SSP or by you, nothing very exceptional there.


4- Restricted Apps tab

Here is an interesting feature of SSP, it is in fact a kind of policy-based "Sandbox" (like OAP's Runsafer or Comodo's Auto-sandbox), with the addition of selecting which folder/file access will be allow/deny to be writed.
When an process is run restricted, its windows will got the "Restricted" tag (if selected in the settings)

unfortunately, Windows 8 is not fully supported.




5- Keystroke Encryption

This feature (available for x64 system only) will encrypt any of your keystrokes (a la "Keyscrambler") so even if a keylogger successfully leaks datas to the attacker , he will not be able to read them.





6- Settings tab

There are the settings options

a- General : here nothing special except the auto-clean option of the rules, quite convenient.


b- Security: here you can allow how SSp will react when confronted to a process, you can select one of the 4 options, "Allow Microsoft" is the less intrusive, "Ask" the most (means more popups)



c- Advanced: here you can increase the protection by terminating processes and their child

Use Hard Hook seems to be an option to enforce compatibility with other security apps.


d- List of Monitored Actions : here you can decide what actions SSP will react from. When a popup will appears the number of the action will be shown so you can know what happened.




FINAL NOTE

Spyshelter is in my opinion the best standalone anti-logger software, its multiple preventive module made it a top notch solutions for heavy online shopping/banking aficionados.

i rate it 4/5.


Hope you enjoyed the review ;)

P.s: i will update this post when i will observe new things.

Good Review Umbra.
I dont use hips or antikeyloggers software
Spyshelter is all in one but my choice is keyscrambler for anti keylogger.
P.S spyshelter have many extra features than antikelogger.

I do have license of spyshelter premium (umbra you know that :p) zemana and keyscrambler pro but i never use them
I am lazy fellow :D

I observed that too, it doesn't work on Virual Box, no solutions for that. (i admit ,i didn't googled actively for one)
