    Ideas on Anti-Keylogger

    I thought of one method is to unhook Hooked programs or to track the hook programs to eliminate. Though, I would like to make a program that would encrypt or create key noise to counter the key logger. Any ideas?

    Apart from generating massive amounts of key noise (which would work, but slow down your comp.), you could also interrupt the connection.

    Almost all keyloggers either open up a socket to the host computer and dump the key buffer, or send an email with the key buffer. If you truly think you are being keylogged, you can use Wireshark to detect if packets to strange hosts are sent, or if email traffic is occurring out of your control. If the former is true, you could set up your router to block traffic on that port.

    Otherwise, there's probably a solution (windows-specific) involving the hooks, but I can't help you there.
