    – You can download the User Manual for AntiLogger, by scrolling down to the bottom of the
    page, and then at about the “middle right-hand side”, of the page, there will be a link to download the User Manual. It will be downloaded as a .PDF file.

    ** Once you have downloaded and installed the Trial Version of AntiLogger, you will have 15-days to see if it works for you, then you will have to remove it from your PC, or purchase a License for it.

    ** AntiLogger is a very user-friendly program. It does not slow your PC down. Nor does it consume a lot of system resources (processor; RAM, hard drive space, etc). When enabled, it silently sits in your Notification Area just waiting for something nasty to try and attack your system.

    ** Now, let’s take a look at the features of AntiLogger, then we will discuss these features in more detail.

    - It protects your PC in five different ways. This is located in the “Protection Console” Area:
    ° Anti-KeyLogger.
    ° Anti-ScreenLogger.
    ° Anti-WebcamLogger.
    ° Anti-ClipboardLogger.
    ° System Defense.
    [​IMG]

    - The “Management Console” Area is where you will find three items:
    ° Rules.
    ° Quarantine.
    ° Log.
    [​IMG]

    - The “Services” Area you will also find three items listed:
    ° License.
    ° Updates.
    ° Support.
    [​IMG]

    - Then, up near the top, on the “right-hand side”, of the “Main Program Interface”, you will find three items listed. They are:
    ° Settings.
    ° About.
    ° Help.
    [​IMG]


    ** Now, let’s discuss each of the Features in more detail.

    - First, let us look at the Three Functions, located on the Top Bar Section of the Main Program Interface.
    [​IMG]

    -- First Function that we will look at is the Settings.
    [​IMG]

    --- When you mouse-click on Settings, this is the Main Settings Dialog Box that will appear.
    [​IMG]

    - Please take note that the Tab that appears will be the General Settings Tab, if you have not already selected some other Tab. This Tab should appear on the first run of the program.

    You have quite a few Options that appear in the General Settings Tab.

    * The First Option that appears is the Change Language Option. When you mouse-click on the little down arrow, on the right side of this Option Box, you will be presented with quite a few choices of the language that you can use for the Program. Here's all the languages that you can choose from.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    * The Second Option is: "Automatically launch at system startup"--> To have the program launch every time you start your computer. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Third Option is: "Always display Security Alert window with 'Create rule' selected--> To have the program pop-up a Security Alert window when you have the Create rule Option selected. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Fourth Option is: "Use the Internet to check digital Authenticode signature information"--> To have the program access the Internet to check if the file has an Authenticode signature attached to it or not, and if the file signature information is valid or not. Here's some information from Microsoft about its Authenticode information: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc750035.aspx. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Fifth Option is: "Activate SSL Intrusion Prevention"--" To have the program activate one of its Security Features. SSL Intrusion is one way that malicious programs can infiltrate your computer. Here's some information from Zemana on what "SSL Intrusion" is: https://www.zemana.com/AntiLogger/Modules/SecureSSL. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    -- Underneath this Option is a Sub-Option: "Show notifications"--> T0 have the program "show you notifications" about this Security Feature or not. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Sixth Option is: "Activate Anti-Sound Recorder Technology"--> To have the program activate one of its Security Features. This Security Feature monitors programs on your computer, and will prevent them from silently activating your Web Cam and Microphone, which a malicious hacker can do remotely without you even ever being aware that you are being monitored. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Seventh Option is: "Show message about Zemana promotions"--> To have the program display to your current promotions that Zemana are offering. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Eight Option is: "Show tray notifications"--> To have the program display a Notification Area Icon which will then cause pop-ups displaying various notification from the program. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * The Ninth Option is: "Ask for confirmation before exiting"--> To have the program display a Confirmation asking you if you really want to exit or not from the program. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * At the Bottom of this Tab, you will see Four Additional Option Buttons.
    - Left Side.
    -- Default Button--> This resets all the programs Settings back to the way they were when the program was first installed. Be careful not to mouse-click on this, unless you absolutely need to, because everything you have set in the program will be canceled.
    -- Expert Mode Button--> This puts the settings into Expert Mode. Be careful not to mouse-click on this, unless you know what you are doing, because everything you have set in the program will be reset to Expert Mode. What is an Expert? Well, here's the definition of an Expert: "having, involving, or displaying special skill or knowledge derived from training or experience." This comes from this website: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/expert. (This is the Merriam-Webster(r) Online Dictionaries Website).
    - Right Side.
    -- Save Button--> This Saves all your settings.
    -- Cancel Button--> This Cancels and closes this Tab.

    - The next Tab that we will examine is the Security Settings Tab. This Tab sets some very specific Security Settings within Zemana AntiLogger.
    [​IMG]

    -- We have five sections of Options here. The first four are very specifically referring to how to handle digitally signed (certified) apps and those apps that are not digitally signed (uncertified).
    * "Microsoft-certified applications"--> You have two choices here: "Automatically allow" and "Ask for confirmation". It is your preference as to which you select. You do not have a choice to deselect here, you must select one option.

    -- The next block of Options refer to more General Security Operations of Zemana AntiLogger.
    * "Enable the captcha code verification"--> This is also called the Zemana Security Verification and it is displayed if you choose to terminate the operation of Zemana AntiLogger on your computer. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * "Block an application's attempt at registry access, but don't terminate it"--> This tells Zeman AntiLogger to not allow an application to access the registry without completely shutting the application down. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * "Ignore certificates and ask for confirmation for all Remote Administration Tools"--> This tells Zemana AntiLogger to ignore whether or not a Remote Administration Tool is digitally signed and to ask for confirmation whether to allow the Remote Administration Tool or not. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * "Ignore certificates and ask for confirmation for all keyloggers (so called Employee Monitoring)--> This tells Zemana AntiLogger to ignore whether or not a keylogger is digitally signed and to ask for confirmation whether to allow the keylogger or not. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.
    * "Enable keystroke encryption"--> This tells Zemana AntiLogger to encrypt all of your keystrokes, which makes it virtually impossible for malicious individuals and others who wish to spy on you, from finding out what you are typing, including very sensitive information. Mouse-click to select or deselect this option.


    * At the Bottom of this Tab, you will see Four Additional Option Buttons.
    - Left Side.

Be careful not to mouse-click on this, unless you know what you are doing, because everything you have set in the program will be reset to Expert Mode. What is an Expert? Well, here's the definition of an Expert: "having, involving, or displaying special skill or knowledge derived from training or experience."

    - The final Tab that we will examine is the IntelliGuard Cloud Tab. This Tab if enabled allows Zemana to use its cloud-based scanning engines to help further protect your computer. There are three Options areas listed in this Tab.

    ** And Ladies and Gentlemen: this concludes our Review of "Zemana AntiLogger". We find that this is an extremely exceptional program, which functions very well at helping to protect a computer system. While this program is not perfect, as all are not, it does what it does very, very well. I have yet to see much that it has not stopped, as I have been using this program for quite a long time. It also works quite well with other programs, as there are very few programs (as listed on the Compatibility List above) that it is incompatible with. Personally and professionally, I highly recommend "Zemana AntiLogger" for: it's extreme user-friendliness; it capacity to do what it does and do it extremely well; it's cost to License it; the company (Zemana Ltd.) has a very excellent reputation; and the support is top-notch, as well. **
