I just seen a thing on the local news about hackers using Keyloggers to get your passwords and see everything you type. Is there a good software for detecting and blocking this type of thing? I seen alot by google search but dont know what to use. I do have Avast Internet Security with Firewall, Malwarebytes, and SuperAntiSpyware on my 3 computers. Is this enough to detect this type of thing or is there a software especially for this Keylogger detection and blocker and if so will it interfere with what I already have installed? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using several anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.

Most antivirus and antimalware program have the detection signature to detect keylogger software, but to make sure you should scan the computer using another on-demand scanner to verify that your antivirus program did not miss a keylogger infection.

A-squared, Ad-Aware, CounterSpy, Malwarebytes Antimalware, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spybot-Search & Destroy and Windows Defender are some on-demand scanners and removers that have keylogger detection ability.
