Re: Does Totally Undetectable Keylogger Software Exist?
said by jaceg:Running Windows, especially XP, from an Administrator account is like leaving the keys in the ignition of your car and hoping no one steals it. I work a help desk, and I have personally spoken with thousands of people with infected computers calling for help. Most of them ask some variation of 'how can I prevent this from happening in the future?' I used to advise them to use a limited account for most computing and keep a separate Administrator account, but 100% of them 'don't want to change anything'. That's O.K.; we'll make more money off them when they call back with the same problem in a few (days/weeks/months).
I have a friend who, just a few minutes ago, was calling me wanting for me to come over and just wipe and reinstall Windows.... This person uses AVG (up to date) as well as occasional scans with MABM. Her PC is still infected with numerous viruses and rootkits. Even online scans will not remove them. Typical crappy Windows XP security that really just cannot be fixed without totally crippling the PC. And, obviously, AV software is not the cure.
