    "Not Win7-64bit compatible"

    September 26, 2011  |   By nick carntowan

    Version: SuperKeys 5.7

    Pros

    Looks elegant to use

    Cons

    Doesn't do anything on my system but perhaps that's because Win7 is not listed in the spec.

    Summary

    Hope Win7 implementation comes soon.

    "There is NO TROJAN in superkeys, anti-virus gives false positive"

    July 28, 2007  |   By plexos1

    Version: SuperKeys 5.7

    Pros

    Very handy utility.

    Cons

    Some anti-virus software reports false positive. You should set the anti-virus to ignore this for Superkeys. The mystery is explained in the superkeys help file:-

    From the SuperKeys Help file . . .

    -----

    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 taken 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, we use them to help SuperKeys Supercharge your

    Keyboard!

    If you are scanning your system for spyware, make sure you look closely at

    the files you are about to remove. If you remove any of those four files,

    SuperKeys will stop working properly. Thankfully, the solution is simple -

    all anti-virus / anti-spyware programs have an exclude / ignore feature

    for just this sort of situation. Set that program to ignore the SuperKeys

    files and then re-install the SuperKeys. I'd also appreciate it very much

    if you would let the maker of your anti-spyware program understand that

    they are doing a great disservice by targeting an innocent tool and not

    the malicious part of Second Sight's code that actually tries to send out

    your information over the Internet.

    .

    .

    .

    You can verify that SuperKeys is not a keylogger by watching

    your Internet connection and / or monitoring your connection through a

    firewall program. You'll notice that SuperKeys never tries to access the

    Internet.

    "Contains file(s) that anti-virus may consider trojan"

    July 28, 2007  |   By plexos

    Version: SuperKeys 5.7

    Pros

    I used it to program a function key with the £ character which was unavailable on my spanish keyboard. Quite handy.

    Cons

    I installed Superkeys about two weeks ago and an anti-virus boot scan yesterday using AVAST revealed:-

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\KTKbdHk3.dll is infected by Win32:Trojan-gen. {Other},

    C:\System Volume Information\_restore{5C7F0E26-9888-4425-8639-94D8A322B319}\RP391\A0056780.ocx is infected by Win32:VB-EIH [Trj]

    KTKbdHk3.dll is apparently written by Konstantin Tretyakov for key capture and needed by superkeys, but also used by spyware for keylogging. Possibly superkeys does not use it for anything bad but it flags up on anti virus scans,

    see forums.cnet.com/5208-6142_102-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=140781&messageID=1786844#1785759

    I can't find anything much about the other file in System Volume. Another user comment here reports 2 infected files so that ties up. Perhaps it came in with Superkeys too.

    "Killer Freeware"

    August 19, 2006  |   By purple & gold

    Version: SuperKeys 5.7

    Pros

    I've been using this software for a long time and have compiled over 200 different shortcuts, from automated command sequences in my favorite programs to signatures with random quotes to tons and tons of logins to different websites. The program uses a bare minimum of resources and has never once let me down - well deserving of a five-star rating.

    "Tutorial Gets You Up and Running FAST!"

    August 13, 2006  |   By Cartoon Rioter

    Version: SuperKeys 5.7

    Pros

    I'd never really used a keyboard shortcut program before - the four-step tutorial had me up and running in no time. Works perfectly, takes up a bare minimum of resources. I can't recommend this program enough.

    Cons

    None.

    "Awesome bit of freeware"

    April 19, 2006  |   By Joscha.Davidovich

    Version: SuperKeys 5.7

    Pros

    From the attractive interface to the ease of shortcut entry to the extra features like the ability to add a randomly selected quote from a easy to build list of your own favorites, this program has everything you could want in a macro program and more.

    This program is wrongly flagged as the Second Sight keylogger because Second Sight took the file SuperKeys uses to scan the keyboard. Novices who don't realize how common false positives are in the world of anti-spy software will naively trash this program in their reviews and that's fine - it's their loss really. I actually ended up switching to Ad-Aware which is faster and totally free, but if your anti-spy registers a false positive, it's pretty simple to set it to ignore. (Hey, why do you think they all have the ignore feature in the first place?)
