Hi, I've been involved in a campaign to assist the current protesters in Iran, and I'm certain that I've been infected with (what I'd guess) is a fairly sophisticated keylogger or piece of spyware. My setup is Windows 7, Kaspersky Internet Security 2009, and KeyScrambler Premium. The reason I believe this is what's happened, is that Keyscrambler, (which is fully Win 7 compatible), started warning me that it was no longer encrypting my keystrokes. It does this at very specific times as well E.g. any encryption related task consistently "turns it off." So if I go to compress and encrypt a file, as I'm choosing a password, "zap!" it stops working. It's very odd, and in the 2 years I've been using it, I've never experienced anything like it. I've not received any warnings from Kaspersky (I probably should be running the new beta with Win7, rather than 2009. It just bugs me not using something I've paid for. Bit stupid though!) I've used a number of other AV scans, none of them show any infection either. However if it is government produced spyware, that's perhaps no surprise. I've really got 2 questions: ( a ) What's the best way for me to rid myself of this (assuming you agree that I'm not misreading the tea-leaves)? ( b ) I have a clone of my system disk (on an external hardisk) that I made with Acronis. Would copying that over my infected system disk definitely solve the problem? Is there any way a virus could survive (perhaps by spreading to the clone as soon as the external USB it's on is plugged in)? Many thanks.
