How to protect yourself from keyloggers

Introduction to software
Actual Spy or keylogger allows you to find out what other users do on your computer in your absence. It is designed for the hidden computer monitoring and the monitoring of the computer activity. Keylogger Actual Spy is capable of catching all keystrokes, capturing the screen, logging the programs being run and closed, monitoring the clipboard contents.
• Logs all keystrokes, is case sensitive (keystroke logger).
• Makes screenshots within the specified time interval.
• Saves the applications’ running and closing.
• Watches clipboard contents.
• Records all print activity.
• Records disk changes.
• Records internet connections.
• Records all websites visited.
• Records startup/shutdown.
• All the information is stored in the encrypted log file.
• Convenient interface of the log and screenshot view.
• Generates the report in the text and html format.
• Sends the report to the specified email, via FTP or local area network.
• Works in the standard and hidden mode.
• In the hidden mode it is invisible in all operating systems (in Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista processes as well).
• Provides the opportunity to protect keylogger with the password, so that nobody except you could view the logs.
• Actual Spy Software is not detected by antivirus software.
• Fast installation, convenient and understandable interface, various set of features, flexible configuration system.
Use Of Software
I have just taken the features from their site and as you can see that probably they made this product to monitor the activity by administrators or the one having previllages. I believe correct use is
by office administrators to check whether employees are using the computer correctly or just missusing the resources.Same thing is for college students.

Now this is the biggest issue.
threat comes from use of this software for stealing login id & passwords.
threat does not even limit to privacy but extends to hacking of bank accounts , credt card details and the list continues......
the makers probably won't have thought of this.

Beware Of Wrong Advices
i will come up with the gem of a trick to fool the keylogger.but before that i like to discard some wrong/irrelavant advices given by experts.
1.Use on-screen password while typing passwords (wrong advice and i will prove it later)
2.other irrelavant advice is to check startup programs , logs . processes but what to do when there are no administer previllages.
ok you can check processes but what is the guarantee that a keylogger is running i mean there can be many softwares with different names.

Let's Explain
this is what it looks like.

you can see the keystroke recorded below.

i tested it myself. it recorded my e mail id and password.
i used on screen keyboard and it recorded again , applications recorded onscreen keyboard. i was shocked at this and my brain came up with a brilliant idea.

How To Fool Keylogger.
i just used common sence .
i opened mosilla and before filling username i just clicked outside and the cursor from typing area was know the typing will not take place in the username .now uust type rubbish and keylogger will collect it , again take the cursor to the type area , type 2 or 3 words and again type same thing for password in a will be practically impossible for anyone to now figure out your password , card no. etc.
can u figure out that my password is avrlsaxena08 and password is 45e9_e9w1i
from this nonsence which the keylogger collected this time.

Seems more likely that there was a virus threat and attack that had caused the firefox browser to hang up. You can shut down and restart, try and use a good active antivirus to scan, check and repair if there was any damage on the OS .If not you can uninstall the forefox and reinstall.

When downloading i get error 3

Error 3 is a failure to communicate with Google Update. There are two known reasons for this:
  1. You're running Vista and you have configured Google Chrome to always run as administrator. This is a known issue with the Google Chrome auto-updating mechanism and can be avoided by simply running Google Chrome as a normal user. Additionally, keep in mind that for security reasons we recommend that you don't elevate the privilege of Google Chrome to administrator.
  2. Google Update isn't registered properly. To fix this, verify that GoogleUpdate.exe exists in the location specified in the Windows Registry Editor.

    The instructions below involve viewing your registry. If you're uncomfortable or unfamiliar with this, you may want to consult your local computer guru before following these steps.

    1. Go to the Start menu > Run.
    2. Enter regedit.
    3. Click OK. The Registry Editor should appear.
    4. In the tree view on the left, navigate to the following directory:


    5. The "Default" value should correspond to the location of your GoogleUpdate.exe file. Verify that GoogleUpdate.exe exists at the given path.
      • If GoogleUpdate.exe doesn't exist in this location, try uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome.
      • If GoogleUpdate.exe exists at a different location, right-click the 'Default' value and select Modify. Enter the correct file path and make sure you use double-quotation marks, e.g. "C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe"

Chrome.exe - corrupt file history index 2010 -

Depending on your Operating system, go to C:\Documents and Settings\[Your user account here]\Local settings\Application data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default". You will find 5 or 6 folders and in the folder that you're in you will find some files like 'History-journal' to that effect. Delete all of these files. It will not wreck the browser or settings as these files will be recreated again.
See if that helps you!

Outlook1.pst file disappeared when installing updated drivers for LogitechQuickCam. I think they are related as QuickCam has some kind of mail interface. Can I get my e mails back? Jim Moore

could be a corrupted mail file,

just track down the folder where the file is 'normally' found, c:\documents and settings\user\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook (XP)

or c:\users\user\appdata\local\microsoft\outlook (Vista, 7)

make a copy of the file just in case, note the location you save the backup.
. now go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033

and run ScanPST.
navigate to the location where your PST is stored and click Start.

You have the option here to create a backup .bak file as well.
when this completes, you can try to open the PST file in Outlook again , via File > Open > Outlook Data File.

You can use this same method to scan .OST files that might be errored, or corrupted as well. OSTs are used with Exchange server accounts , also known as Offline STorage Files.

Outlook.pst SEEMS to be hidden

Hi there
When you find the file all you have to do is copy the file to your documents, if you have to right click on it, go to properties and uncheck "hidden" you will then be able to view the file and copy it to a flash drive or any other removable media, Microsoft do this for security reasons

Google Chrome Theme

You just need to download a small application called Chrome Automatic Theme Changer and apply your favorite theme. The App is bundled with three themes: black, blue (the default) and green. Since these themes are in the format of default.dll files, you simply download your desired theme and put the default.dll file inside.
C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application.2.149.27\Themes\
and for Windows Vista users, inside
Please note that you will need to check the option to ’show hidden files and folders’ in the “Folder Option” to access the Local Settings folder. If you are currently using Firefox or Safari, there is a theme available for both browsers. Download the Firefox and Safari themes for Chrome at
