    Hi London,

    There are a number of programs discussed on here that will help you. Some of them are more technical than others.


    Most of the vendors here offer free evaluation versions of their products - have a play and see which one fits your needs the best.

    I wouldn't rely on Ewido for keylogger detection. It a great program for other types of malware, just not keyloggers. Maybe in the future this aspect of Ewido will be improved.

    Security Task Manager is a good recommendation and its scan is very fast. Though because it uses heuristic type detection methods, you can get some false positives. Any detections you may get (usually those above 75% rating or so) should be looked into further before deleting.

    Snoofree, a completely free antikeylogger, is a good program and maybe worth a try. Just be aware some people have reported some problems running and removing the program occasionally, but I've never had any problems with it myself. http://www.snoopfree.com

    Spycop is a decent program for finding keyloggers. The free trial does skip some files though, so I'm not sure how useful it could really be. May still be worth trying. http://www.spycop.com

    I would consider running a rootkit detector (such as Blacklight beta or RootkitRevealer etc...) as well, because some keyloggers run at the kernel level and wouldn't be detected by many other typical antispyware and antikeylogger scanners.

    I've heard payware programs like SpySweeper and SpywareDoctor do fairly well at detecting keyloggers as well. But I wouldn't rely on them for my only protection. The free version of SpywareDoctor has a antikeylogger in it that you can continue to run and it won't expire. You could look into that as well.

    Security Task manager can,t be used blindly. It will sure falsg ur AV, Firewal or AS as dangerous. So u ahve to analyze its results carefully. Same with SnoopFree, it will give warnings about legitimate softwares as well. Actually both are non signature based, but really nice.
    I am not aware of any goof signature based anti-keylogger.
