So i have spent some time already trying to understand and figure out my problem.


Firstly, The whole reason i thought i might have a virus or whatever i might have is that, *without me touching my keyboard it would start typing some of my various passwords into whatever area i was already typing in*


Second, I was very worried but let it go for a couple of weeks until my worry grew to much and i went on some google spree's to self diagnose myself. Upon some very simple searches It seems that what i have is a keystroke logger (I am sure you guys here know all about these, hence why i am posting here). I am not positive but i am like 80% sure.


Third, I then after the diagnosis i then tried to run anti-malware(malware bytes) for a threat scan but it came up with nothing and that left me a little stumped on what to do next. Sooooo i went and looked through my task manager and even got a more advanced process inspection tool to really look for something wrong, I identified most things and ruled out a lot of things but it was all to much for my limited knowledge so i stopped.


Fourth, I also in my attempts to oust this horrible virus installed a program called KL-detector, It did not find anything. :(


Finally that lands me here at this forum looking for answers, now i am aware that i could nuke my computer wipe the drives and restart everything and i would not have any problems but i would prefer not to loose all of my game files that took a while to download :P. So if there is a less harsh way of dealing with my problem i would certainly love try it.


I am like 90% sure i still have the key logger installed and cannot for the life of me find nor destroy it so if you guys here have anything to help me out it would be wonderfull. :P


oh and i still have that key logger detector running in the background, seemingly scanning around and waiting for any suspicious activity that a key logger would make? am i right it saying that?(all it does is use a little processing power and some RAM so idk i guess)
