    Hi

    I was just wondering if there is any simple software out there that I
    can install on my computer (PC) so that I can record the keystrokes
    that are made on it as I want to discover the password that someone who
    uses my computer uses for their hotmail account.

    I want it purely for the purpose stated and therefore am not looking
    for any complicated programs that will take a long time to learn.

    Thanks

    A

    Google for "ValuHack". Everything you need in one small package. :)

  6. Well, such a trivial task doesn't require any keylogger at all.

    Why doesn't it require a keylogger, how else can I do it?

    But as any of those should regard a keylogger as unwanted
    software, the question is does it actually contain additional
    functionality as spyware, or is it just a keylogger.

    What's your definition of spyware?

  12. By using a webbrowser that allows to store entered data? By intercepting
    the login communication while accepting the changed certificate?

  13. Seems like Kaspersky and McAfee are the only ones with competent naming
    conventions. :)

    The only people more pathetic than the OP are those that try to help him/her.

  16. He has full authority on his computer. If someone trusts him to not log
    every input, it might just be unjustified.

    For the very same reason, I'd never enter any credentials in a cyber café.

    It's an invasion of privacy.

    It's no different than renting a room to someone, then spying on them.

    This is considered "Spyware" that contains a Keylogging component.

    BTW:
    From Symantec:

    filename: pcacme.exe
    machine: AVCAutomation:
    result: This file is detected as Spyware.PCAcme.

    Software which discloses information to someone
    other than the party who installed it.
