Hi, I am trying to figure out if there is any sort of keylogger or other spyware software installed by an actual user that can transmit my email or other information. Is there anyone can install these types of programs through the guest account (I didn't give my administrator password to anyone). Here is the HJT Log. Thanks in advance!

Howdy, my name is Hoov, and I will be helping you with your dilemma.

Please make sure you watch this thread for responses. If you click the options tab at the top of your first post, you can select to track this thread.

Here is what I am asking you to do during the repair of your computer

*Tell me everything that you have done, if anything, to try and fix this problem.

*Please only use 1 forum to help clear up your problem. Posting on more than 1 and following instructions from more than 1 forum will cause those helping you to pull out thier hair.

*Follow my instructions - If you can't for some reason, or if you don't understand something, please tell me. If you deviate from my instructions, tell me, it may make a difference on where we go. Don't install anything, even other programs that have nothing to do with security or malware, it could cause things to change, and I would never know it.

*Have faith. I will do all I can to get your computer working, and if I can't - someone else here will know something else to try.

*Stick with me to the end. My aim is to fix your problems, and give you the tools and knowledge to keep this from happening again.

Now onto trying to fix your computer.

If I am helping you and you don't hear from me for 24Hrs, send me a PM Please!

Have you turned off the User Account Control feature in Vista? Are you experiencing any problems, or have had some kind of privacy issue?

I did not turn off the User Account Control feature.

I am just concerned that someone may have had access to my laptop when I was not there.

Is there anyway they can install anything without having administrator access? Do you see anything suspicious in the HJT/DDS logs ?

Can anything be installed without Admin access? The answer is yes. BUT, the programs that can be installed that way will be very limited on what they can do. I don't believe any of them will be able to spy on you. Was there anything suspicious in the log? No. But I did see that Viewpoint is installed, and I would uninstall that. But that is from previous experience. From what I have heard, viewpoint has cleaned up its act, but I have had bad experiences with it in the past.

If you are worried about people having access to your laptop, make sure you password protect it. And make sure that you use a secure password that no one will be able to guess. Do you need the general rules for secure passwords? My laptop has a 20 character password on it, so if my laptop is off, or idle for a half hour, no one is getting in to it. And Vista is much better with password protecting the system than XP was.
