Hi gents,
i was wondering what are you use for providing some type of key-logger protection
as you know key-logger is some types of malicious software which record your keystrokes and capture it to steal
are you depend only on your security vendor (if it is piece of software has key logging protection) especially when you log in your banking account :unsure::unsure: ?? or you have some tweaks done with your OS built in system to harden the OS against these kinds of this malware ?. i am delighted to hear your opinion :):)

A good SRP already protect against such type ;)
Combined with MOTW + SmartScreen + Windows Defender this is a easy set & forget.

If Keylogger can start on your system, the damage doesn't matter as it's already to late for protection.
Do you have certain tutorial for Such SRP policies :) :) ??
is there any tool to detect it ?? could you make some type of analysis to discover it on your system ?? for example detect its process using Process Explore or any other tool :unsure::unsure:??

I do not download any software or executables whatsoever. I also work with a small number of trusted website and use WDEG and Norton 360 Premium. Does that count?🤔
How do you dont use any executable do you use Linux ??
for me i check the digital signature and hash if exist (using hash my file) to check before install it on my system
for example now i begin web development course at which i need Notpad ++ i found GPG signature i am trying to check right now never did it before and gpg --verify CMD fails seemed this command not supported any more

Almost all of my software comes with Windows. On my malware test laptop I download everything, which of course is intentional. On my real-use one, I do not use any non-MS software, except for Norton 360 and couple of adobe programs. Yes, I have checked the digital signature of all of them. Once I setup these programs, I do not download any exes whatsoever. I use, but I don't download :)

Then check the integrity of Adobe products.(alwayes have security issues) if you use reader (i feel you may use photoshop :) ) than Foxit may be better and more stable that my opinion

may agree somewhat with you as any advanced browser may do its function unless you need editing tools ,signature and collaboration
Only installing what you need and maintaining a tiny, no-bullshit configuration is the key to securing your system. Most of the malware is distributed through social engineering and relies on people who are always looking for something "cool" to add on to their system. If you don't have this software "hunger", you are immune to social engineering and the huge part of attacks relying on it. I don't need editing tools, hence I've got no Reader or Acrobat.

Now that's another thing, never download a software when they are asking you, or telling you you need it badly. If I need something, I will search for it and download it myself. Also, all software that needs to be updated has built-in tools to do it. If you wanna download an update, always go to the vendor's official website.
I will never ever give my details over the phone or via email/in online form. I would open my mobile banking and contact the bank through the app.

You can check the digital certificate as well. In general, cases where they will be able to affect the company's website and steal their certificate and push you malware, not detected by your AV are extremely rare. It's not something that happens every day.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus free has a function to protect input from the hardware keyboard, that is, the input text is encrypted immediately when typing on the keyboard. But I turned off it, since the SpyShelter Firewall already encrypts text when typing.

assuming you've installed gpg correctly it should work but you can check that the path variable is set correctly:

search for "env" (Edit the System Variables)
Make sure that gnupg\bin folder is in your path like:

1.Hitmanpro Alert HitmanPro Alert vs a Keylogger - Bing video {old Cruel sister video}
2.Norton Most keyloggers are detected by Norton as spyware (e.g., Spyware.123Keylogger, Spyware.ABDKeylogger, Spyware.StealthLogger, Spyware.SuperKeylogger, etc.) so the OP will actually find most keylogger detections listed under "S" at Symantec Security Center.
This what I have hope its enough
