    Can anyone recommend a good Keylogger detector that can be run from a USB drive? I just want to have a handy keylogger detector when using school and other people's computers.

    Hi there,
    Look here:
    in the forum where the KL-detector is mentioned as pretty good and free and here is the
    site where you can download the little thing. It can be run from USB, so exactly what you need i think.
    It doesn't detect hardware installed keyloggers though.

    The opposite is known too, the remote controlled USB keylogger. Most school computers and other public computers these days have keyloggers installed on them, as well many parents install them.
    So be prepared to work on a keylogger controlled system unless your check proofs different.
    With commercial keyloggers / spyware the problem is they don't allow Ad-Aware and the kind of programs to detect them anymore. So that KL-detection could be a little extra help.

    Use a LiveCD. Software keyloggers are useless against it.

    I will try those programs. I have also found this: AKLog

    Does anyone have experience on the effectiveness of this program?

    Running linux from a flashdrive is the most convenient way imo. The only problem you may run into is a computer which can't boot off a flashdrive.

    Another option is using something like neo's safekeys which lets you enter private data without having to press any key rendering all keyloggers useless.
