When the log is full, it will overwrite the oldest ones gradually with the newest ones. In this manner, it stores the most recent 2,000,000 keystrokes, making it possible to review over one year worth of PC activity! [top]

The KeyGhost device installs in a few seconds, onto any desktop PC with any operating system. The KeyGhost device can be installed when the computer is switched off. It will also pick up passwords used to access the BIOS before boot up. [Top]

Q. Does the KeyGhost work on Laptops?
A. Because of the many different brands, and power specifications of laptop keyboard and docking ports, it is quite hard to predict if the KeyGhost will work favourably with your laptop.
In order for it to function you will need to use an external keyboard in the back of the laptop’s PS/2 port. Any keys typed on the laptop keyboard will not be recorded, only those typed on the external keyboard will be recorded.
Some laptops do not accept keys typed at high speed on an external keyboard, so the Turbo Download Adapter is recommended for use with the laptop, otherwise the ‘Keystroke Ghosting’ may have to be set at a slower speed to retrieve the log. [Top]
Q. Does the KeyGhost work on a USB keyboard?
A. We have a KeyGhost USB Keylogger device available that is designed for use with USB keyboards. Note: The PS/2 models (small round plug) of KeyGhost do not work on USB (rectangular plug) keyboards. There are no adapters available to make a PS/2 version work on a USB keyboard. KeyGhost PS/2 versions only work with PS/2 keyboards (small round plug), and older DIN style keyboards (larger round plug, but requires adapters). If you are unsure which type of keyboard you have on your system, follow the lead to the back of the PC and check the shape of the plug. If it is round, then the PS/2 KeyGhost will work, if it is rectangular then the KeyGhost USB Keylogger will work.
Note. Some USB keyboards come with their own purple coloured USB to PS/2 converter, in those cases, a PS/2 KeyGhost will work when connected between the PS/2 adapter and the PC as the keyboard detects the adapter and reconfigures itself to PS/2 mode. There is no generic USB to PS/2 adapter available. [Top]
Q. Does the KeyGhost work on Wireless keyboards?
A. Yes, a KeyGhost device should work on wireless keyboards by plugging it between the Wireless receiver and the PC PS/2 port, USB port or USB HUB. The receiver that comes with your wireless keyboard can be USB or PS/2. If it is USB (small rectangular plug) you need to choose one of the KeyGhost USB Keyloggers. If it is PS/2 (small round plug) and has two round plugs coming from the receiver (one for mouse, one for keyboard), connect a PS/2 model KeyGhost between the receiver’s keyboard cable and the PC. [top]
Q. Will KeyGhost store ‘Control’ characters and function keys?
A. Yes. The KeyGhost stores all keys typed on a keyboard, even key combinations. This is important, as it helps you understand exactly what happened on the PC. The keys are output as text tags into the log. E.G. When the Control and C keys are pressed in combination, the log shows . Even arrow keys are recorded and displayed as (left) (right). [top]
