  1. I need a program that monitors keyboard buffer and records all the typings into a file. I am typing a lot and sometimes I tend to forget to save a file or to keep track of my passwords. Besides, I want to know if anyone is using my machine (and its keyboard) while I am away. (I have WindowsXP Pro).

    Could anyone direct me to a link or recommend something from their own experience?

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your link, but I have nothing to do with all those advanced features that Keyboard Monitor is offering, neither want to spend 30$ for sucha program (just for trying it). I could use a much simpler application (and I 'd like to rather test it before, so a shareware would be nice :) ).

    I couldn't find anything of this kind at Sysinternals...

    There aren't more?:confused:

    Duku, here are some links to programs that do what you ask.

    KeyLogger

    Key Stroke Recorder

    KeyGhost

    That is just a few. Do a search on Key Stroke recorders or Software. Hope this helps.

    I read something about that a few months ago, I think it was at the Register but I'm not sure. I do remember that the program is supposed to be able to log keystrokes as well as a list of all hardware and software along with any files stored or opened on the target computer. The article never confirmed it, just said that it was "supposed" to exist.

    I just watched "Click online" on BBC World. There was a story about this, looks like it really exists after all. But, but, but.. I still doubt if it works on GNU Linux. I wouldn't wonder if M$ would cooperate with FBI but an OS being developed by individuals over the world, not likely. Well, at least I hope so.

    I think it's designed for Windows, Mic. What they apparently don't know is that the kind of people they're looking for don't use weak operating systems like Windows :p
