Is it true that the OSK (On screen keyboard) can dodge keyloggers? I mean, if you type via clicking on your computer screen it cant really be traced unless the keylogger is really advance which i doubt most are. I was told this works, reply if you know if it does/doesn't.

Yes, that is one of the advantages of the on screen keyboard, it can't be picked up by key loggers. Some sites I have seen even recommend using the on screen keyboard to enter passwords and bank details etc.

Well, sort of. A keylogger in the strictest sense won't pick up touch-type keystrokes, but the built-in screen monitoring application will. (which most monitoring software has).
