Hello,

I poked around in my computer's registry, though made no changes. I found the registry keys KSGenerator.KeystrokeGenerator and KSGenerator.KeystrokeGenerator.1 in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. I assume this means my computer is infected with a keylogger. I couldn't delete the registry keys, or edit them, or change permissions for the keys (I have Vista Home Premium OS.) That may not have solved the problem, anyway, had I been able to do these things.

Today, I got as far as step Step 8 - Create a GMER Log on the Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help
( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/ ) and my computer was in the process of scanning using the gmer application when it crashed. I got a message after it restarted-- but it was so brief I only saw something about "If this is the first time this has occurred...." Then after I had gotten my desktop back, I tried to run the gmer scan again, but the computer crashed again.

I have the DDS.txt and the Attach.txt files that the instructions requested, and I also have some of the information given by Windows regarding the cause of the crashes. Would this information be at all useful in getting the keylogger off my computer? I didn't want to send any logs if they aren't sufficiently complete. (I hope this is the appropriate place to ask about this.)

If anyone can help me with this, I'd be very grateful.

What antivirus/antispyware software do you have installed on your computer?
