Well,I thinkj you know about adwares and spywares.Even if you have programs like Mcafee etc,they won't protect you from adwares,spywares and keyloggers. A keylogger is a program that records all that you type on the keyboard.For example,if you goto paypal and type your id/passord,it would record it as www.paypal.comusernamepassword And my question is:- Whether the keylogger will be able to note down if we copy /paste the username and password? plzz help me.Thanks a lot.

From what I've read, it won't. But I'm not really sure.

I hope it doesn't. Or else,I would never have a peaceful moment with the internet again. And thanks for responding. Also,for all,try to get a spyware remover installed if you access paypal and other important stuff. Cheers! Have a nice day Happy mylotting and happy surfing.

I also read somewhere that they cannot track the copy paste. About the screen shot, I don't think they can. My suggestion, get one anti spyware program like Spyware Search & Destroy. Keep updating the software. Your surfing activity also need some changes. i) I suggest you to run virus scan then spyware remover program before login to your online money account. ii) Never open other website when you open your money account eventhough the Yahoo Messenger or Yahoo Mail unless you open your e-gold account (you need to get the Accsent pin which is sent to your email account if you choose to have it each time login to your account). iii) If you need a to do screen shot or copy paste of the payment proof, do it right away and save it in diskette or pen drive, then detach the diskette or that pen drive from your computer. When you finish with your money account, clean cookies and history. Also clear all the files from your temporary folder. Restart your computer. iv) Then open back your computer, put back the diskette or pen drive where you save the print screen, save it to your computer, remove back the diskette or pen drive (delete it after you upload it), then only you open the image hosting website to upload the print screen. At this time, you also can open other website that you wish to open. v) Always type the fake password first then delete it before you type your correct password. vi) Never use program from internet to save/manage your password and never save the password in you computer. Use floppy or pen drive to save it and always detach and close the file each time after you copy paste it. vii) Never use the browser option to save your password. viii) Always change your password. I have a lot more to type about the security with money account password security, but I'm afraid it's too sensitive issue to discuss it here, so, I think if you practice as my advice, I think you can be safe.
