    Ok, I want to find a anti-keylogger program, seeing as I'm actually afraid I might have picked one up (although I dont know how, no one has access to my computer, or anything, so someone couldt have installed one, but maybe by visiting a website, is that possible?)

    SpyCop is supposed to be one of the better anti-keylogger tools:

    also, in process explorer, I found a program called "PSTORES.EXE" in the windows system folder running, i found it, it says its by Microsoft, and "Private Server Storage" or something :doubt:

    Ah, and also, there probably no Freeware anti-keyloggers or anything, is there? :doubt: ah well... I probably dont have one, only thing that made me worry, is on my "What is a keylogger" topic, I checked out the 2 sites that someone posted up :doubt: ( http://spector.com/ and http://www.trueactive.com/default.asp with some info on what they can do, because they are legal keyloggers for businesses or something? )

    Hmm, on the site, I found this: http://www.anti-keyloggers.com/products.html I'm gonna try it, and atleats make sure I dont have any, and if I dont, I can delete it when trial is up... although How I'd get a Keylogger, I dont know, I am adminstrator of this computer, no one else besides me has actual pyshical access to it, and my firewall would stop any outgoing data from something like that, wouldnt it?

    o_O Do you know for sure, that you have a keylogger?

    Or are you just guessing that you might have one?

    Just guessing, at the moment, nothing strange has been requesting access to the internet for a while, so right now, I'm just trying to get something to see if I have one, ah well.. I very serisouly doubt I have one, but, never know with all this software/malware/spyware/viruses/worms/trojan horse getting more high-tech and smarter to go around firewalls, and everything else :doubt: ...... damn people have to destroy everything, dont they? :doubt:

    Hmm, Well, would a keylogger show up in Process Explorer? or would it be in my registry as a boot up object?
