    If you think you have a keylogger.

    Download 'Hijack This!

    *Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    *Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    *By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    *Click on Install.
    *It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    *Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    *Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log *should open in notepad.
    *Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents *of the log.
    *go to this thread and post the contents http://forums.techguy.org/54-malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/
    *DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    I repeat do not try and fix anything until the malware experts have told you what to do !

    good luck :)

    ps. check the CPU usage on control alt delete, if its 100 % something is probally hogging it
