I heard Spector Pro is not detectable using spyware detectors. How can you identify if Spector Pro is on your system?

Also, wondering what software I can obtain to identify and trace hackers.

Excerpt from Spector Pro:

Stealth Mode
Stealth technology ensures that Spector Pro is completely protected from everyone except those with authorized access. It will not appear in the Windows System Tray, Desktop, Task Manager or Add/Remove Programs Menu.

Excerpt from above link:

While most of those programs--both the keyloggers and the anti-spyware utilities--have been updated since my tests, one thing is undoubtedly still true: The more anti-spy tools you employ, the better your chances of detecting a stealth keylogger. Everyone who connects to the Internet should install and use both Ad-aware and Spybot as a matter of course. To do a more thorough scan, add PestPatrol and Spy Sweeper to your counterespionage arsenal. Both programs are available in trial versions.

If you suspect a keylogger is installed on your PC, you may be able to bring it out of stealth mode and uninstall it. Most of the programs emerge from stealth mode via a keystroke sequence--Spector Pro 4's default sequence is Ctrl-Alt-Shift-S, for example, and XPCSpy's wake-up call is Ctrl-Alt-X. Even if the person who installed the spy software has changed this key sequence to something else, a little determined keyboard exploration might reveal the new combination--just be sure to close every application (including those running in the system tray) beforehand to minimize the chances of invoking unwanted keyboard commands in Windows or your apps. Once all your programs are shut down, press Ctrl-Alt, Ctrl-Shift-Alt, or a similar combination, and then by trial and error start pressing other keys.

There may be other ways to reveal a hidden spy program. I found one right on X Software's Web page: To bring
