Hi there
I want to make a keylogger which will run in back ground. I have already written a code and it working good but there is a problem. when it runs it runs with a console and it logs key only when we click on the console. I want it to record every key strokes. Wether its on browser or system. How to get all the key strokes from the key and how to run it without a console.
need help!!!

Java is not the best language for creating key loggers or other mal-ware.

Indeed, let's not encourage this kind of behavior here.
