The Ardamax Keylogger is no exception, with many options for recording keystrokes such as clipboard logging, e-mail and network delivery.

  1. 1

    Download and register “setup_akl.exe” from the Resources section of this article, or insert the installation CD.

  2. 2

    Click “Run” and installation begins. If you have the CD, installation should also start automatically.

  3. 3

    Click “Next” and follow the prompts until you see “Finish.” An icon is viewable on the system tray in the bottom right corner.

  4. 4

    Double-click the icon to open the Options menu and adjust the settings in “Delivery” and “Monitoring” as needed. The Monitoring tab enables different types of logging, and Delivery specifies how you wish to view the logs (by e-mail, LAN, etc.)

  5. 5

    Click “OK” to accept.

  1. 1

    Right-click the Ardamax icon in the taskbar and choose “Installation Package Creation Wizard” from the menu.

  2. 2

    Check “Append Keylogger Engine to File or Another Application” to add the installer to a pre-existing program. This is useful for hiding the key logger in a trusted file. Specify the path to the file, if necessary.

  3. 3

    Enter a location (folder) to install Ardamax on the targeted computer and type a name for the file where it says “Executable Name.”

  4. 4

    Change the setting listed on the “Destination” tab to further specify details such as changing the package icon (optional.)

  5. 5

    Read the summary on the “Finish” tab and click “OK” to confirm. An installation package is created with the setting you specified. Create a new e-mail and send it with the package attached.

Tips and warnings

  • Ardamax no longer offers a shareware version of the key logger (as of June 2010). You can download it from the help area of the site, but it won’t install unless paid for in advance.
