"OK, but beware"

October 23, 2012  |  By cfraser21

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

Works well on XP.

Cons

Doesn't work on Windows 7. Also, despite my indication not to, it installed funmoods on my computer and I had a hard time getting rid of it.

"Don't Assume Your Anti-Virus is Infallible"

May 02, 2012  |  By Vellosoft

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

For all the people jumping in to give this program a one-star rating, please read --- THERE IS NO SPYWARE INCLUDED WITH SuperKeys. Zip. Zilch. Nada. None. Trust me, I hate spyware as much as you do.

Unfortunately, it seems the harmless ActiveX control SuperKeys uses to scan the keyboard has been stolen and is also being used by some evil little people who write their evil little keyloggers, in a program called Second Sight that attempts to record and send your data out over the Internet. Because of this, some anti-spyware utilities out there are now registering false positives for SuperKeys being the Second Sight keylogger. The files in question are: KbdMonitor.exp, KbdMonitor.lib, KbdMonitor.ocx and KTKbdHk3.dll. These files are nothing more than a tool to scan your keyboard, and like any tool, they can be used for both good and bad. In our case, I use them to help SuperKeys Supercharge your Keyboard!

Have faith in Download.com and please don't assume your anti-virus is infallible.

Cons

The only con I can think of is from my own perspective as the developer, it was a labor of love, but I never imagined I'd pour so many hours into a project only to see my innocent little program slandered as malware.

Oh yes, and Internet Explorer 8 will cause SuperKeys to stop operating, don't know what changed between IE 7 & 8, but you'll only want to use SuperKeys if you're regular browser is something other than Internet Explorer.

Summary

The funny thing is, the anti-virus / anti-malware companies that I've had the most problem communicating with *cough* webroot *cough* and trying to explain the situation on their false positives against my innocent program are the ones still trying to charge people money for a product that is readily available for free. Microsoft's Security Essentials is as robust and a lot less obtrusive in sucking down system resources than most, it's totally free and they were quick and responsive when I told them my software was being improperly flagged.

Anyways, it's like my own child, which is why I felt compelled to write this, but I do know a whole lot of people have found SuperKeys very useful in their daily computing and I hope you do, too.

"Pity about the trojan that comes with it."

December 23, 2011  |  By selcourt7

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

Apart from the above, works well.

Cons

Mine contained the trojan, win32:trojan-gen look it up.
It is in the superkeys.exe as KTKBDHK3.dll
Your computer will require a boot virus search, or it will be missed.

Summary

At your peril.

"excellent programme"

August 03, 2011  |  By jimcurrie

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

Does just what I want - since I am very ancient and sometimes make mistakes in entering my email address, password or whatever.

Cons

Having installed Superkeys, I have entered two items successfully. However, now, whenever I wish to enter another item and click on to the icon,the message "Superkeys is already running" is shown - even though the computer has been switched off.

"Great product"

August 11, 2009  |  By definer

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

Works just as advertised. I've been using this program for nearly 3 years now. It plays well with others and has never gien me a problem. You will have to add an exception to you antivirus program because it does capture you entry keystrokes.

Cons

Nothing to dislike

Summary

Good, efficient, and does what it advertises.

"Trojan onboard?"

January 05, 2009  |  By captq

Cons

Apparently contains malware

Summary

"Makes the list for favorite freeware"

November 14, 2008  |  By Joe_Schmoe

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

Ease of use, lots of features, very minimal use of resources.

Cons

None that I can think of.

Summary

Downloaded this years back when it was on download.com's top-ten freeware picks and would probably put it on my own personal top-five list.

"Why can't they do this right?"

November 11, 2008  |  By jonldavis

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

It's free and works like it says.

Cons

You have to make a macro key for everything.
I want to shorten typing not macro it.
Like typing Jon to type out Jonathan.
But you can't because Jonathan contains the word Jon and this will start a endless loop.

Summary

Fix the endless loop problem and you got a great product.

"Couldn't get it to work"

November 08, 2008  |  By steve972

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

Might be good if I could get it to work.

Cons

Using Vista and couldn't get it to work.

Summary

Very well might have been user error. Looks like a good program, just couldn't get it to work right with Vista. Give it a try, might work for you.

"A daily companion that I couldn't live without"

August 24, 2008  |  By Alicyn Shaynes

 |  Version: SuperKeys 5.81

Pros

SuperKeys is a great little keyboard macro program, I use it for signatures, date stamps, logins for various accounts and even have a couple automated command sequences for my TradeStation software.

Cons

After working perfectly for months, it stopped working. Turns out Norton was flagging it - contacted the developer, they explained there's an issue with SK occasionally getting mistaken for SecondSight, Norton updated their definitions, all is good.

Summary

This program is indispensable to me - it's so easy to use, the beginner's tutorial was enough the I didn't even have to wade through the help file and when I did have the issue with Norton, the customer support for SuperKeys was very helpful. I can't recommend this program highly enough and it's pretty hard to beat the price, too - FREE.
