I tried scanning our computer with a program called KL-detector. It reported a long list of possible keyloggers.

 

Is this a good program to use for this?

Hi there,

I tested KL-Detector on my own system. Looks like it only monitors for file operations done during the time that you set it to monitor the system.

The list of files that it created during the monitoring period can be hard to tell if there is a keylogger on the system, especially if you do something that involves a lot of file operations (i.e. surfing). I don't recommend surfing during this test since it asked you to shut down your AV.

So your PC may or may not be infected. If you still suspected an infection then it's best to request elevated help since a keylogger is a serious thing.

Regards,
Alex

Thanks for your response.

 

I don't know whether to suspect it's infected or not. We've got an asus p6x58d premium mainboard with 8g memory. I installled windows 81 pro x64 as a trial. Bitdefender found about 6 infected files recently. I've noticed that the keyboard blinks every so often,  llike it does when the system is booting - but it doesn't seem to affect anything. The computer is able to turn back on, from cold boot, just by pressing a key on the keyboard. I don't know if this is something that's a part of windows 8.1 or not. There was also some strange behavior with new windows popping up when I tried to type in the firefox search box -- but that seems to have stopped since the bitdefender scan. The keyboard blinks and strange boot ability are what are mainly making me wonder.

The problem seems to have been a bad keyboard. When I replaced it, new windows stopped popping up.

 

Thanks for your help.
