I have updated AVG, Avast, AdAware, and Spybot, and none are finding this keylogger on my machine. However, Webroot Spysweeper finds it consistently.
My friend Mike, who built my desktop computer (I'm on my laptop right now), went through several steps over the space of several hours with me to try to find this little bugger. We looked for the wintective folder in the Program Files. Nothing. We did a search for wintec*.* in My Computer. Nothing. We searched the registry for wintective.exe and setup1.exe. Nothing.
Now, we *did* find in the registry the two keys consisting of very long numbers between brackets. (I'm sorry, but I can't remember what part of the registry they were in. I only remember we were in a folder under the Windows directory. I think.)
Unfortunately, after restarting the computer, Spysweeper still found the keylogger on my machine. We cannot find any trace of it in the usual places, but Spysweeper is reading it on there somewhere.
Anyone know how to get rid of this bugger for free? I'm a poor, part-time independent contractor who only just got a contract just before discovering this security breach on her machine, so now I can't make any money until this darned thing is off my machine! HELP! PLEASE!
