    I am wondering if anyone has heard of this software.


    I have just downloaded it as I suspect that my partner has installed keylogging/spy software to my laptop but I have no idea how to identify which of the 200 threats it outlines is actually the keylogging software. Can anyone help?

    I also recieved my laptop as a gift from my partner and it could also be possible that a key logger could have been installed within the hardware before I received it? Is there anyway I could search for it or would I need to take it in to a specialist?

    Looks like a rogue to me, look at the site layout and advertisement techniques. Also WHOIS results shows "1and1-private-registration.com" has been used. Also CNET had a review of this, but they removed it from their page. Not having much time, or else I would have tested with Virustotal.

    Ideally you would need a system state check done - to see what exactly is running on your computer. This website, Wilders, doesn't allow such system log posts. But there are several websites that specialize in this type of area. If you explain the reason why you need your computer analyzed they will then be on the look out for running loggers - if this keylogger is a "user installed" or a commercial product, then chances are it won't get flagged as anything suspicious. Some of their processes can be disguised and hard to recognize. So clarify you want to be sure no commercial or user installed keyloggers reside on your laptop.

    Here are some websites that can help you to analyze your computer.




    There are a lot of helpful links and guidance for dealing with infected PC's here

    But you definitely should visit those websites I posted and make sure your PC is clean - right now.

    Then think about securing your user account. Add a password so no one else can access your personal documents. Obviously you should only do this once you are positive there are no keyloggers.

    How-To create/change user account password - BTW, if you find that your admin account isn't blank, it shouldn't have a password if you haven't set one, then chances are someone has set up a password already, which is suspicious. You can change that admin account, but your own user account being passworded is more important.

    I don't know of that software you've linked, but don't panic and go installing stuff on the net before you've done a background check - a lot of people here can spot a bogus program a mile off - it's a good idea to ask here before installing. A lot of the advertised products shown in search engines are bogus, that's a fact.
