I am feeling a little paranoid this evening, maybe. I am currently using the only computer I have access to, and it's a computer that was once in the hands of a person who probably imagined he had a good reason to install a keylogger program to spy on me. I'm handling some really serious courtroom drama stuff right now, and oddly, it seems that the other party, the one I suspect of having a keylogger on this computer, is always able to be one step ahead of me on everything. I am starting to think that they really did install a keylogger on this machine and have been monitoring my communications. This is really, really serious stuff, here, but I don't have access to another computer to do research or send messages at this time. I'm stuck with this machine or I would simply switch. I have no way to figure out if there IS a keylogger, or how to get rid of it if there is one. And, I don't have the cash purchase any virus or anti-keylogger software, either. I'm lucky I got away from the other party alive and with this computer in my hands. I wasn't able to escape with enough cash to buy software. (Sorry!) What do I do to detect and remove keylogger software manually? I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate with Service Pack 1. I keep thinking the only way for me to feel secure is to wipe the drives/re-install windows. But, ugh, I wish there was something a little less drastic that I could try first. If you want to help, I want to add that I know enough about computers I can follow your instructions, as long as you don't leave any steps out.
