Cone of Silence is an application that blocks key capture programs while it is running. There are many utilities out there that save all key strokes to a file. The purpose of these programs (usually) is to save anything you have been typing in case of a system crash. The downside is, malicious users install them on other peoples machines (public labs, etc.) and gather information like passwords to network services. This is a MAJOR security issue.

Cone of Silence can be used to ease some of the fears associated with using public access machines. While I can not claim that this program guarantees security in all cases, it does do a good job with every method of key capturing I have found. I carry Cone of Silence around myself, whenever I must use a potentially insecure machine.
