Oops, error in the title. It's supposed to be "HitmanPro detects a Keylogger of some sort. Malwarebytes and Avast Pro detect nothing".

 

HitmanPro detected a Keylogger of some sort. It says that Kaspersky identified it as "not-a-virus:Monitor.MSIL.Keylogger.gi". The file is MouseKeyboardAcitivityMonitor.dll

I'm a bit suspicious that this is a false positive, however. I have both Razer Synapse (for my keyboard) and Logitech Gaming Software (for my mouse) installed on my computer, and I know that Synapse has some type of Activity Monitor included. It could also be WhatPulse.

My HitmanPro trial ran out and I can't really afford to purchase a subscription. Any suggestions? Thanks!

The file itself is safe but can be used by malware to log keystrokes and mouse clicks. I would contact Razer support and see if your keyboard does use that file. If not then I would start a thread in the Virus Removal Forum after reading the pinned topics.

Yeah, I thought it might be that. I'll send in a ticket to Razer support right now. Thanks for the clarification.
