I looked up KGB on the net and initially the information seemed to say that it could only be manually installed and a search of my program files and registry for relevant files did not reveal any reference to the malicious program, but then I didn't know if registry entries could be disguised.
I ran my Paretologic anti spyware which showed nothing and also Spy Bot for good measure which also showed nothing, which has left me puzzled as to why Zone alarm identified two temp files associated to a specific spyware prog?
It just so happened that my Zone Alarm Spyware subscription had expired and I had not renewed because I already run Paretologic and Spybot (admiteddly not often enough). Someone suggested that the Zone Alarm alert might be an attempt to 'put the frightners' on me to gee up my subscription renewal?
I've had no alerts since, but the whole episode has made me rather uneasy because of the implications of a keylogger prog. on the sytem. I'm still unsure if this type of prog can be installed on a computer and operated remotely.
Any advice would be welcome.
