Within the last several minutes ran Spybot scan and watched as it revealed I have some keyloggers installed. It did not identify them as malware.
Advanced System Care has not identified them as malware.
When I searched HD for "keylogger" several showed up, all associated with Yahoo! even tho I have nothing of Yahoo installed that I am aware of, until now.

So, searched a bit and found Spy Shelter anti-key logger software, installed free version and ran it.
The first key logger that showed up, (so far the only one its found), was Avast Antivirus Pro.


Anyone know about these things and how to get rid of them?

Edit: Apparently, as I learn more, some key loggers are okay, such as maybe anti-virus programs, and not all key loggers are malicious. Not sure yet how to know...except some confidence is there if the logger is "signed."
