    Can keystrokes be read after the password is entered?

    Have I been deluding myself?
    I have been accustomed to switching off my network connection by means of Kaspersky's "Block network traffic" command before entering passwords to sensitive personal data in encrypted files.
    Obviously that's no protection to a resident keylogger that can transmit or be interrogated when I go back online - I rely on Kaspersky to root out such beasties.
    BUT, when I "Unblock network traffic" are my password keystrokes readable by a distant keylogger ?
    All help gratefully received!

    You should be fine as long as your firewall is secure.
