So you know password keystroke protection does not mean that there are actual keyloggers, just that it encrypted information.

Here is the definnition of that report item:

The following password submissions were protected against keystroke logging. Rapport has prevented any access to keystrokes while you were submitting a password to these websites. This does not necessarily mean you have keyloggers on your PC. However, if any of the applications on your PC tried to log keystrokes while you were entering information to the websites below it failed. You do not need to take any action.


What kind of internet connection do you have? It could be Windows downloading updates for your computer as it will start that when it detects your connected to the net.

The problem is that so many applications download updates as well. Your best bet is to install wireshark and see what is being transmitted. Also a tcpview log would help us determine if anything is running that shouldn't be.
