    I think I have keylogger in my computer, but I'm not sure. How can I catch and remove it?

    P.S. I know nothing in this area. Please, be patient to a newbie :oops:

    Hi IcyWizard, I moved your post here as the TDS3 forum was specifically for TDS3 support.

    This forum should provide a better place to receive attention to your question.

    After you run a full system scan with your fully updated anti-virus, I would recommend you download the free trial of Unhackme http://greatis.com/unhackme/ and the free trial of Security Task Manager http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/ and do a check for keyloggers with them.

    Both programs will find a massive amount of keyloggers. But you need to run both to find hook based as well as kernel based keyloggers. They are both easy to use and will scan in a matter of seconds.

    In Unhackme it will be obvious if you find a keylogger because it won't detect anything other than malware. Security Task Manager can be slightly more tricky to interpret, but if you get a detection of anything over 80%, I would consider that extremely suspect. You can always ask here about any detections you get with STM before you delete them.

    Or if you don't mind spending the cash, Spycop http://www.spycop.com does a very good job of finding both kinds of keyloggers, but it's not a freebie.

    Let us know how things go for you. People here like to hear a good success story sometimes too. :)

    You can give KL-Detector a go. The simple step-by-step instructions will walk you through the process. :)

    Hello,
    If you know nothing in this area, why do you automatically suspect a keylogger? Maybe posting a hijackthis log in a dedicated forum could be wise? Also, you might wanna try the full array of scanners, including ad-aware, spybot, spyware doctor, msas, ewido and a2, and trial version of spy sweeper.
