Portable Anti Keylogger

Psm Anti Keylogger

Open Source

I did see some less serios tools in Closed Source. But this here seams to work very well. It could be a nice addon to travel with. Sure it can`t be perfect and unbeatable but I think it will detect 99% of public available keyloggers.

Could some Delphi programmer review the code?

It does some strange things...I'd also appreciate a review.

Well,

the way I see it the program puts low level hooks in windows to deal with key presses in its own way, now this to me seem to be a good way of doing it but it uses the MadCodeHook library which I was under the opinion of being GPL Incompatible, although I would be interested in knowing for sure.

Yep

My research suggests that.
Of course, you could *cough*decompile*cough* it.

Well, it's listed on the SF

Well, it's listed on the SF project page as being licensed under the GPL. And the full source is available on the download page.

You could *cough*compile*cough* it.

.

From the madCodeHook site:
There is a free non-commercial edition available. However, it contains no static libs. So when using the non-commercial edition you always need to distribute the "madCHook.dll" with your software. The commercial edition contains static DCUs for Delphi and Borland C++ and also a static lib for MSVC++.
There's also a full source code edition available. But please note, that although madCodeHook does support MSVC++, it was written in Delphi. So when buying the source code edition, you'll get Delphi code from me, not C++ code.
(Emphasis mine)

OSI incompatible

It's not just GPL incompatible, any project that includes madhook cannot be considered an OSI project and, thus, can't be hosted on SourceForge.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

CAUSED SERIOUS SYSTEM ERROR

Hi

Beware of this one. On my PC the installation left my machine in an endless reboot loop.

Blue Screen > Reboot > Windows logo > Cursor appears > Blue Screen & reboot again (no login screen). Blue screen error said that Windows had stopped to prevent damage to the system because of a recent change causing a vital process thread to stop prematurely.

I had to to a hard reboot half way through the boot cycle to force the option to go back to last known good configuration, then manually remove the app.

XP SP2, AMD Athlon XP 3000+, 1GB RAM, generally middle-of-the-road system with no previous flake-outs and no other recent hardware/software changes.

If someone can package this as a portable-friendly zip or 7z archive that would restore my faith, but for now, this app is the only traceable cause of a fairly worrying situation.

For now, I am backing up 160GB of data and running every system check-up I can think of...

Works fine on my comp. Just

Works fine on my comp. Just needs one windows service to run. A simple batch file could be fine enugh to make it portable. How can I run a windows service without letting do the install the setup?

The "diable" function also don`t seam to work well. But the detection is a nice helper.
