Nothing will keep your computer 100% safe from a keylogger and/or a screen logger. It would be possibly for an attacker to install a physical keylogger that is between your keyboard and your computer, the same is true with your monitor. This gets much more complicated if you have a laptop but is still, in theory possible.

You are saying like a USB plug in attack?

AVG is a very poor antivirus, as far as i have checked PC and laptops that have avg, most probably has some viruses inside, so no point to use that week antivirus.

It does reasonable job given that it is free.

Avast free antivirus is better than AVG. To make your system more secure use Avast free + malwarebytes. It will detect most malware and viruses.

Of all the antivirus I've used, I like Bitdefender and Malwarebytes, BD has good customer support too.

Keyloggers are honestly kind of rare these days, though. Most people into that sort of thing just use remote administration tools. It doesn't hurt, but I don't think it's really worth it to install another program for just that purpose.

Yup Physical keyloggers are hardware devices that keeps track of every key , a threat on public systems not on your own Personal system , only your friends and family with bad intentions will do that ,

Is free AVG good enough to stop keylogger?

It is a good anti-virus software, but it won't be able to detect the latest or custom keyloggers, I fear... If you want to be safe, sign your transactions on an offline machine! And keep your long-term-storage Bitcoins in a paper-wallet! That's the safest way!

Yea Avast is a bit better than AVG - I tested both on 40 computers in a Training Lab. Installed AVG on 20 and scanned it and once it said it was cleaned, installed Avast and uninstalled AVG. {Ran Avast and it still detected virusses and cleaned it}

Then installed AVG on the other 20 computers, scanned it and cleaned some virusses and then installed McAfee {And got the same result, McAfee detected a lot of infected files, AVG did not pick up}

So yes Out of those 3 - Avast detected the most and also cleaned the most.

Might be dickish, but only way to avoid keyloggers is use a system that almost no one targets for hacking attacks when you are dealing with money, that is, Linux and other undegrounds OSs

Linux isn't exactly underground. Many enterprises use it.

Because hackers don't bother to make keyloggers for Linux, since very few desktop users use it.
