    Hello.

    SoftForYou Free Keylogger is a personal keylogger that allows you to log applications used and text that was typed on the computer. It runs comletely hidden and logging starts automatically whenever your computer boots. The log viewer provides an easy-to-read overview, that can also be filtered by user or application. The SoftForYou Free Keylogger interface can only be accessed by a `magic word`, which you need to configure and remember - whenever you type that word, the interface will show and reveal access to the log viewer.

    This is a free commercial product, not a stealth install as far as I know.
    SoftForYou is a privately held software company specializing in child safety software products for both the home and enterprise markets. Launched in 2000, iProtectYou was specifically developed to help parents protect children online and to give a powerful tool to monitor and guard children from the many online dangers that exist where they have Internet access.

    Are you saying someone installed the program on your personal computer without your knowledge and you would like to remove it?

    Cheers.

    Default softforyou keylogger

    Well,

    Acutally I installed it myself on my comp so it should not be a security risk.

    I followed the instructions and changed my "magic word" but for what ever reason my new keystrokes do not activate the keylogger control panel. I have done some goggle research and have seen similar problems and no solutions.
    It would be good to remove or at least manage it because it is capturing my keystrokes in a log file.
    I was just hoping you folks could detect and remove it for me because there is no other way to access, remove or do anything to this program. Spybot and Norton AV are the two programs I use, both are updated.

    Maybe you could just give me some advice on a manual uninstall or some regedit info or something....

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Hi there.

    So basicially it cannot be removed via Add/Remove because you need the magic word.

    Please post a HJT log in the malware removal forum so one of the helpers can take a look at the system.

    Instructions to get a log are here:

    Hello floare76

    Same suggestion as for Jumboto who did start a topic in the malware forum but has not followed up yet:

    Please follow the instructions to get the HJT log.

    Start your own topic here:

    A helper will then take a look at the system as soon as available.

    SoftForYou Free Keylogger will be detected by Spybot with one of the next updates because it runs in a hidden mode and other computer users get not informed about the keylogger. So other users can be spied out easily.

    Hope i could help you,
