Keyloggers? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I got sent this information

    "All windows operating system computers run keyloggers as part of the operating system, if this were not the case, auto system recovery on windows 2000 and above operating systems would not be possible"

    Is this true? or am i being lied to?

  • False information. System Restore does not rely on logging keystrokes. It records system state, that is file versions. Furthermore, it does not affect user data, which will not revert. There is no "auto system recovery" in Windows 2000, either, by the way.
