    Why do you want to do this, i.e., what is the bigger picture of what you are trying to do?

    Also, what is the operating system that you have in mind?

    I want to make a keylogger that is smarter than a normal one for my network security class. We haven't learned how to create a listener like this before though and everything I searched didn't seem to work. I am running windows 7.

    Also, I would like to use a win32 console project if I can too.

    Ah. Unfortunately, refer to item #6 of the forum guidelines:
    6. Messages relating to cracking, (erroneously called "hacking" by many), copyright violations, or other illegal activities will be deleted. Due to the overlapping boundaries of code with malicious intent, and other legitimate uses of it, the moderators will assess each potential infraction on a case by case basis.
    I suggest that you arrange for a consultation session with your instructor instead.

    I believe this would fall under homework policy as well. I've been a member of a few sites like this one Matt, you're not very likely to come across a forum that will actually help you do that. Even if it is for class, it's a 'cover-our-own-butts' kind of thing.
    If, for some reason, I don't make any sense at all, it's highly likely that I've been up all night on some strange bender that isn't normal. I likely unarmed and far from dangerous. While I haven't been known to physically harm anyone or anything else, there have been unsubstantiated reports that I have driven others into both a hazy stupor as well as a blinding rage. Otherwise, I hope I helped.

    Kind of.

    By helping the OP, you are helping anyone who googles for this same topic but has less admirable intentions. If I was denied all accountability, I still would refuse to help idiots learn to make keyloggers (not referring to OP, referring to people with malicious intentions).

    At any rate, the OP can google for the info elsewhere.
