    Pros

    In XP, works perfectly... catches just about every attempt to hook screen or keyboard. Simple operation and I would not be without it.

    Cons

    Now have Windows 7 and desperately wishing my old trusty privacy shield worked with it.

    Summary

    Please update and create a version for Windows 7!!! PLEASE!

    "BEWARE!!!!!"

    November 16, 2010  |   By VisionMaster

    Version: SnoopFree Privacy Shield 1.0.7

    Pros

    none cause i did not tr it out. read below

    Cons

    I tried to download, and received an alert from zone alarm's browser force field, saying it is malicious... it hides itself, and disguises itself as system files.

    Summary

    I didnt download, so i cant say how well it woks or not. just be careful with this..ive been using zone alarm force field for a while now, and only one case of false positive so far.

    "Didn't work for me...disappointing really."

    October 27, 2010  |   By Tagmonkey2k

    Version: SnoopFree Privacy Shield 1.0.7

    Pros

    It sounded good and I was looking forward to installing and running this software based on what I read from the editor's review and other users.

    Cons

    I unzipped the download and my Sophos anti-virus immediately flagged this as Sus/Dropper-A which exhibits characteristics commonly, but not exclusively, found in malware.

    Summary

    Maybe my anti-virus was being a bit over zealous but when I tried to run the executable file it produced an error message stating that I didn't have sufficient permissions to run this application even though I have administrators privileges for this user account. I tried right clicking an selecting the run as administrator option but that didn't work either. It could've been just a corrupted download perhaps but by that point I lost interest.

    "PC would not boot with it"

    September 6, 2010  |   By the_mick

    Version: SnoopFree Privacy Shield 1.0.7

    Pros

    Like the idea.

    Cons

    I installed it while running Win XP, Avira AV, Comodo Firewall, WinPatrol and SuperAntiSpyware. I rebooted as requested by the SnoopFree install program, and Windows refused to launch completely, displaying an error message then rebooting etc.

    Summary

    I ran the computer in Safe Mode, picked the previous day's restore point (I have software that creates one each day) and it booted fine.

    "easy to use, not a memory hog, unobtrusive yet works"

    August 30, 2010  |   By Greyveil

    Version: SnoopFree Privacy Shield 1.0.7

    Pros

    Easy to use, nothing to do really but sit back and wait for something to try to hook my keyboard. i have confidence in the program and that means a lot to me.
    I appreciate the ability to go back and change my mind regarding a program later.

    Cons

    none so far

    Summary

    easy to use, immediately after downloading and scanning it found 2 keylogger programs which were stopped. much appreciated!
