I just installed SnoopFree Privacy Shield. It detected lkbdflt2, a keyboard filter apparently from Logitech as I run a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse, however, it classified it as an unknown keyboard filter driver.

Ok, so before knowing that it was actually the Logitech filter driver, I denied it with SnoopFree which now populates my system tray as a startup item. No problems yet encountered from this denial.

After searching my system files, there appear to be 3 instances of lkbdflt2.sys.

Now for the juicy detail: Imagine my surprise when upon logging into my ISP account (dialup), SnoopFree detected two instances of my ISP's software attempting to hook my keyboard, both of which I denied:

1) the ISP control panel software
2) the ISP Mail Client

Why, and why the mail client - to monitor my email?

Well, this act by my ISP's software appears to be prima facia evidence of attempted privacy invasion by my ISP unless I am misinformed - although unless the hook is actually used I suppose one could not actually prove privacy invasion, or is just attempting to hook proof enough that privacy invasion was intended - like attempted theft?

Any lawyers care to weigh in on this issue? I'm not litigious by nature, but I would like to know.

Anyone else have any similar experiences with their ISP?
