    Checking for keyloggers

    I know there are some keyloggers that are available on internet (those for personal reasons)

    How can i check whether my computer has a keylogger installed, i'm afraid that the passwords i type might be logged without my knowledge.

    Depends on how the keylogger is implemented. System wide stuff can often be caught by looking in the process list or in the HiJackThis data.

    I've seen some that will install as a keyboard driver and catch input that way too.

    There are a lot of ways in keylogging, i also tried looking in the process list, but some of the items are not familiar to me. Are there softwares available to scan the PC instead?

    Spy Sweeper will find a lot of keystroke loggers.

    Ken, post your process list here and I will be happy to point out anything out of the ordinary. (Of course, this isn't exactly the software solution you were hoping for, but I will be glad to help anyway.)

    To get a list of the processes running very easily, follow these steps:

    Start -> Run.
    Type: cmd
    Press enter.
    Type: cd\
    Press enter.
    Type: qprocess > list.txt
    Press enter.
    Type: exit
    Press enter.

    You now have a file called list.txt in your main harddrive (probably c). Just copy and paste the contents into a post on this website.

    (Note: I realize not all of the processes running are listed by this method. That is because qprocess is set by default to ignore system processes.)
