Hello,

How do I tell if a keystroke logger has been to my machine? After two hours of work, I realized that the firewall in Panda Platinum had been disabled---it didn't happen from my end====any ideas?

Thanks,

Onyx123

I don't see anything there

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
· Install ewido.
· During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
· Launch ewido
· It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
· On the left side of the main screen click update
· Click on Start and let it update.
· DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.

Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Run Ewido:
· Click on scanner
· Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
· During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
· When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
· Save the report to your desktop
This will take some time to run!
Post that log and a new HiJack log

Another quick way to check for a keylogger is to open notepad or something similar, and type in some wierd phrase like "frogs are my friends" or something. Then, run the search command, search every local drive for files containing text "frogs are my friends" or whatever phrase you used. If a logger is installed, you should be able to find the location of the log files this way.
