  1. Understood. And maybe Online Armor can consider this ok. I also received a response on the PopTrayU forum. "PopTrayU has an option to set global hot-keys that will cause PopTrayU to pop up on the screen or check for new mail, even when you are in another application. So PopTrayU registers specific user-definable hot-key combinations using the RegisterHotKey windows library function and listens for WM_HOTKEY windows messages if the registered key combination is pressed. As far as false positive of screen logger, it might be caused by windows style hooks to correct the background color of the time pickers ( a bit about the need for this). You have to incercept the WM_PAINT windows message and manually paint the control is the gist of it. It appears there are a lot of reports online about Online Armor being overly broad in it's criterion for detecting key-loggers resulting in many benign applications being detected as possibly harmful. PopTrayU is also open source, you are more than welcome to review the entirety of the source code in the SVN repository, or build the application from source (presuming you have access to the needed compilers), if desired. The XE4 branch in the repository is the current source code." - Jessica Brown, author of PoptrayU Steven
  2. Online Armor is a fine program. I hope it keeps an independent firewall existence, as I like my firewall not in a suite (layering mentalitiy.) Maybe the biggest problem it has is that the free program is so good and it is hard to find extras to encourage upgrade. I last owned the paid version back when it was indepentista, before Emsi, and I liked the port tweaking that was not in the free version. Also there was some super special on Bits du Jour or somewhere. Maybe an upgrade marketing push would help. I know I would find various ways to put out $10-25 acceptable. Note how some companies give real specials at the end-of-year and various times, often for longer licenses of 2 or 3 years or lifetime on multi-computers. Offers too good to refuse ... if you really like the program, as many do with Online Armor. Once OA is setup, alarms are few. I got one the other day for poptrayu.exe, which I downloaded from the SourceForge site, author Jessica Brown. A respected program, an email notifier, usually used for gmail. The message said keylogger and screen logger in two separate messages, and to be cautious about allowing. A bit of a surprise since an email notifier does not do much special. (My only theory is a toolbox used in development that has special functions, not used in the program.) The SourceForge forum has not yet put up my post (last post up was weeks ago). VirusTotal gives 57 clean, 0 bad. Any feedback from Emsisoft would be appreciated. Thanks! Steven Avery Bayside, NY
