hello
i was in yahoo games the other day and someone told me that he would put a keylogger into my laptop i told em that i have anti virus and antimalewares but they said all they need is my ip address and i dont need to download a file or a virus .so i got worried and now i think im infected i downloaded teh free version of spyshelter and it doeasnt realy have a scan or something like that so i was wondering
1: is that possible to install an keylogger into someones comp without sending them a file or asking them to visit a webpage , and just by IP address?
2: anyways to do a keylogger detector scan to see if theres one in my comp?
im sorry if this is a stupid question or its been asked before .im noob

How does your computer connect to the Internet? Do you use a NAT-router?
