Copying and pasting your password has both advantages and disadvantages:
* Keyloggers, in the basic sense, record your keystrokes. If you copy-andpaste your password, the keylogger has no keystrokes to record. That's good.
* Some spyware, and even websites, can check what's on your clipboard, which is where items you have copied and pasted go. Thus, your password can be intercepted, possibly remotely, whereas with keyloggers the software must be on your machine. That's bad.
* If you are copying and pasting you password, that means it is stored somewhere on your computer. If it's left in an unencrypted form, it can be easily read. Granted, the person or software may to instantly recognize that as being your password, but having it stored, unencrypted, on your computer is never good.
Personally, I'd rather type my password in each time than use the copy-paste method, and simply make sure that my computer's free of pests. The collection of software you have, with emphasis on Ewido, will do that. Just make sure you also have a firewall and antivirus in the mix.
Hope this helps,
Just a quick easy question. If you copy and paste your password will you thwart key-loggers? I run Sybot S&D, Ewido, Adaware Personal, and Microsoft AntiSpyware will this software protect me?
