  try ar-privacy against spyware logging keystrokes
Haha…the fear today in using not your computer is/ public computer is fear about your privacy..coz we don’t know what exactly the computer has in it..not all good for sure.. some are bad..…but, almost everyday you fill in lots of personal information on websites. I am sure that you still feel uncomfortable/afraid/paranoid entering data on public computers and internet cafes, just for fear that someone might have installed spyware/keylogger which could track keystrokes to get email and banking passwords. to get my email or banking passwords.


hehe..when I logged in today to a secure online transaction site, guess what..i was surprised to see the virtual keyboard login just to fix that.fuh…that is a relief…heh


The Virtual Keyboard Login is dynamic system in which the sequence in which the numbers appears will change every time, the page is refreshed. They say the purpose of the Virtual Keyboard is to protect from malicious SpyWare and Trojan Programs designed to capture your keystrokes….you got the idea right…

Now since you enter the password by mouseclicks rather than keystrokes, this truly eliminates this risk and allows secure and safer online transactions…hehe

nah…just in case you didn’t k
now -
Your computer also has a Virtual On screen keyboard.


It allows mobility impaired users (who cannot type on the keyboard due to disability, but can use the mouse) to type using mouse clicks on the virtual keyboard.

This keyboard can be accessed from Start>All Programs>Accessories> Accessibility>On-Screen Keyboard in windows XP.

I highly recommended you use this kind of feature to simply fill in any form…passwords…email ad..and any kind information..that really important to not let someone else….know…I really hope that you use it..
