CNET Editors' review
Easily check your system for suspicious activity with this simple program, though it is occasionally too stringent in identifying risks. Anti Hacker's very basic interface merely displays function buttons and a results list. File names found are color coded, but the colors disappeared at odd times during testing.
Anti Hacker's primary function is to check your system for keyloggers. It rates the potential logger, but the scale is pretty simplistic and only ranges from low to high risk. Unfortunately, sometimes the program incorrectly assigns a very high risk rating to known safe programs, such as screen printers and antivirus apps. The straightforward connection monitor quickly scans your system to identify if apps are connected to another Internet address. An open port checker is equally fast and also includes risk level indicators. This checker wasn't as sensitive as the keylogger checker. The final system checker scans for suspicious programs, assigning each with the familiar risk level.
Anti Hacker makes it easy to copy results lists to text files, quickly display file information, and search online for select file information. You're limited to a short three-day trial. This isn't the only spyware monitoring tool you should use, but it would be a fine basic app for any user.

"works ok but goes dormant after a month or less"
Version: Anti Hacker 1
initailly picks up on key loggers, hijackers, fairly well,
Dealing with the office if you are overcharged or need a credit..the help is terrible. No help what so ever. Had to get my bank involved ,this Corp..does nothing repeat to help you !! -Zero!! Beware!!!
The keyloggers pickup on this product in a short time, find ways to get around it!! Good at first ...then slowly deteriorates. File colors do dissappear during posts ( scans) also vary as to alert state.
Summary good for 30 days -NEXT!!
