Hi

My ex knows everything I do on my computer, he does not stay with me but somehow has deleted files from my documents, a local computer engineer advised me that my ex has probably installed some kind of backdoor trojan that logs what I type or a similar program that can remote control my PC when he stayed with me. Is there any software that can scan my computer and detect these?

I called Dell who told me that I could use the recovery cd to restore my system but also warned me that I would lose all my docs and software in the process, I have all my docs on a cd and usb pen drive but I would hate to do this.

TIA

Several programs can detect a lot of keyloggers. Some keyloggers are more stealthy than others. Your computer settings could of also of been set to accept a remote connection. Easy enough to check those.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another place to look for remote connection is using the info below.
It is very common for certain types of remote control software to replace the default Windows GINA DLL (Msgina.dll). Therefore, a good first step is to examine the system to see if it has a third-party GINA DLL. To do this, locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Value = GinaDLL REG_SZ

If the Gina DLL value is present and is anything other than Msgina.dll, this probably means that a third-party product has changed this value.
If this value is not present, the system uses Msgina.dll as the default GINA DLL.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You may already have Spybot and/or Adaware which find keyloggers. Suggest you use the programs below as well if you haven't discovered anything using the info above.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
