I'm new to the Forum and hope that someone can give me some direction.
I suspect that my husband has installed a keystroke logger onto my desktop PC (running WinXP/Norton AV and firewall). I'm doing all my work now on my Apple PowerBook, at least until the battery catches fire!
When I returned home from a business trip and sat down at my computer, I noticed a small red asterisk in the SysTray.
When I hovered the mouse over it, it said, "You are being recorded." (Gee, that's a pretty good clue that Big Brother is watching!)
When I clicked on it, a plain-vanilla password login box appeared.
A CTRL-ALT-DEL search showed nothing unusual. I also ran SpyBot & Webroot's SpySweeper. Nothing turned up, as I expected. The next day - after he had access to my PC - the red asterisk had vanished.
Does anyone recognize this spware from the red asterisk description?
