Hi, i am new here on BC, I am from Greece. My problem is that I suspect my boyfriend has installed a keylogger on my computer, is there any free programs to see and if so, to get rid of it? Thanks from a sunny Greece

Kalimera.. :thumbsup: Welcome to BC.

In most of the cases a straightforward question to your boyfriend would be the best solution, but reading your topic I suspect you won't get an answer..

The first step would be to go to : START ALL PROGRAMS and look through the list of programs if you something suspiceous. In any doubt please post back and we will help you

I think the best thing to do would be to uninstall your boyfriend! :thumbsup:

I should uninstall my boyfriend! I don't know much about computers, I installed windows defender and Spybot, but I don't know if that is enough. I have been reading about keyloggers and I believe it can be installed in a computer without showing anywhere. Thanks

Hi Linda,

I would suggest posting a HijackThis log to this >> forum.

You can use the instructions in this post. Please describe your situation, as you have here. They will use advanced tools to aid in removing the spyware.

Two things - one personal.

1. This help is offered with the knowledge that this is your computer.
2. Most important - I am glad we can help with the computer stuff, but you need to sit down and have a long discussion about trust with the boyfriend. Without trust, there can be no relationship worth having. - sorry for the editorial... just wanting to protect you as well as the pc :thumbsup:

Take care and best wishes Linda!
