    Hi I play habbo hotel (lol i know you may think im sad but anyway) I recently noticed some of my things missing and sure enough i did an free online mcafee virus scan and found the keylogger so i was on this site and it told me how to remove it i printed out the virus scan results and it said to download Anti-spy and it would list all the running processes it did but i couldnt find my keylogger on the list so i skipped that step then it said download spysweeper i did and scanned it took about an hour and found the keylogger i quarantined and deleted it and today i did an online virus scan again and it found it (I have Norton anti virus with up-to-date definitions by intelligent update as my automatic one doesnt work but i use intelligent i have scanned with NAV and didnt find the keylogger) so what i am asking is there a free program out there that will scan my computer and fint the keylogger and then remove it for good

    p.s today when i did my mcafee online scan these were the results

    C:\System Volume Information\...\A0049582.exe Keylog-SClog
    C:\System Volume Information\...\A0049583.dll Keylog-SCLog.dll

    I think those files have been quarantined and are now in your System Restore folder. To flush this out, you can turn off System Restore, restart and turn it on again. Here's how you turn it off/on -


    Then do another McAfee online scan and see if it's still being detected. May be worth cross-checking with another online scanner, e.g. Trend Micro which also claims to detect that keylogger -


    Also download and run the free anti-spyware applications AdAware SE 1.05 and Spybot 1.3 and their latest definition files, as these do detect and remove some types of keyloggers and many other adware/spyware pests -



    If you don't already have a software firewall running, its worth installing one (e.g. free Zone Alarm from here)


    Then you can look out for and block any suspicious apps such as this keylogger from trying to dial out.

    Also, download the free diagnostic/repair application "Hijack This" from here -

    Create a new folder named "HJT" for it and move the hijackthis.exe file into the new folder. Run the scan and save the logfile of the scan results to notepad and post the results back to this thread, but DO NOT FIX ANYTHING with HijackThis until your log has been examined by a knowledgeable responder, most of the items in the scan are required system or application files.
