Keylogger

Hello!!!!

Is there a way to find out if I have a keylogger installed on my computer?  Any software recommendations to test for this?  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

When I was trying to load one on our computer for the kids our AVAST antivirus software picked it up everytime...and it's free!

I would like to mention that I came across one that said they had a deal with Avast for their keylogger not to show up on scans. I'm trying for the life of me to remember which keylogger that was to get the proof. I remember it did stuff through the internet. As in, whatever computer the keylogger was installed on, would connect to the internet and log the keylogged files and screenshots in an account online.

All I know, was that their FAQ section about 'can the keylogger be detected' mentioned that a lot of scanners would find it, but they had an agreement with Avast to not be detected. Which kind of made me decide Avast wasn't worth considering, ever.

And to the OP, if you think you have a keylogger that was installed on your computer by someone who uses your computer, I would check any scanners that you have, and look at the exceptions list. Because if they set up your AntiVirus to ignore the keylogger, then it wouldn't show it in a scan.

I think we were using remotespy, which used the internet so we could check from work, etc. And I tried to make AVAST ignore it and it wouldn't....irritated the daylights out of me! Mr.Pants ended up getting something called "Timezupkids" (?) to regulate their internet usage, etc. I don't think it logs actual keystrokes but it sets limits to their time and access to pages as well as providing a history.

hmmmmmmm you remember ALL the details about the keylogger but you cant remember the name of it? Hmmmmm That sounds fishy to me anime. Keyloggers will land people in the pen for 8 to 10 ;)

Don't be rude to people you don't know, you're only making yourself look bad.

I don't put keyloggers on people's computers, I have enough of a life that I don't care about stalking others, it was a keylogger found on the computer I use.  There are millions of programs out there, I'm sorry if I'm unable to remember the names of every single one ever invented.  

I actually came across it again, but didn't come search out this thread seeing as it's been inactive for a while.

It's called SniperSpy.

Feel free to remove the foot from your mouth anytime.

Besides, why would you know anything about the prison time that a keylogger would get someone? Sounds a little fishy to me Random-No-Name.

Sir, I certainly hope that I do not end up in prison. My brother has been sentenced to prison twice.
