Invisible Keylogger 1.3, from SpyPatrol, is a very good product. The user interface is very easy to use and very pleasant to look at. There are a few of the text images that are a little blurred, but nothing to worry about. The installation is also very easy to use and setup.
Invisible Keylogger allows you to view the outgoing email, but not the incoming. It does allow you to view both sides of the conversations in chat rooms and Instant Messaging, making it very easy to know exactly who is saying what through your computer. An improvement would be the separation of all of the various types of web text, email text, and chat text. It got somewhat confusing trying to determine what you were looking at in the logs.
It has a very good stealth mode feature. If you don't want anyone to know the application is running in the background, the stealth mode allows you to completely hide the application. You can't even see the application running when you display the Windows Task Manager, by way of the CTRL-ALT-DELETE combination. It is easy to re-display the application with certain hotkey keystrokes that you can customize for easy remembering.
The task of setting up delivery of an email seemed a bit laborious. You had to specify all of the SMTP information including 6 different pieces of information just to give it an email address. This should have only required one field—your email address.
Blocking & Controls
Invisible Keylogger was not as user-friendly as our top three products.
The installation is also very easy to use and setup.
Help & Support
The capture of logins and passwords worked most of the time, but there were a number of times where it didn't catch the password.
Overall, Invisible Keylogger is a very good product for getting an understanding of your computers activities. It is not as powerful as some of the other competitor's products, but it is still very good.
