RE: Need help removing a keylogger!!!!!

You dont have a keylogger. What you have is a trojan trying to scare you into buying a rogue program with a fake alert.

Download Malwarebytes ' Anti-Malware from Here or Here Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.

* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Quick Scan, then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart (see Extra Note below).
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy & paste the entire report into your next reply.

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart (reboot) the computer, please do so immediately

RE: Need help removing a keylogger!!!!!

reboot? How are things running now?

It looks like you have had/have traces of a rootkit infection at some point. it would probably be wise if i suggest you post a Hijackthis (HjT) log at any one of the forums on Ex_Brits post here

HijackThis generates a log that a trained malware removal expert can analyze to see what may be wrong with your system.

Further HjT forums can be found here.

Rootkit: "A Rootkit is software that cloaks the presence of files and data to evade detection, while allowing an attacker to take control of the machine without the user's knowledge. Rootkits are typically used by malware including viruses, spyware, trojans, and backdoors, to conceal themselves from the user as well as from malware detection software such as anti-virus and anti-spyware applications. Rootkits are also used by some adware applications and DRM (Digital Rights Management) programs to thwart the removal of that unwanted software by users."

RE: Need help removing a keylogger!!!!!

Found it, it was caught by Spamcop as you used a different email address than the one I had whitelisted. OK no need to repeat.

Thanks and good luck.
