Is there a way to block or reverse screen capturing malware from keyloggers or hacking tools?
Is there a way to code screen diversions or privacy firewall system or browser through coding?

    That is what your anti-malware and anti-virus software is supposed to do.  This is basically the same question you asked before.  To write something yourself, you would have to do what the anti-virus and malware software does.  I have no idea what a "screen diversion" would be.

    Accepted Solution

    There are a million different ways malware (and legitimate monitoring software) use to track what you are doing. Trying to block all of them is almost impossible. Regular antivirus software gets close because they check for each of known programs basically one at a time. To try to do that yourself from scratch would take years.

    If you have a specific program that you are trying to block, that would be possible but if your company monitors your activities, then we can't help you circumvent that.
