I use the netstat, or netstat -a command to see what outbound connections my computer has. It says port 1025, 1028 are established and 1183 is time wait. I am thinking that these are nothing to worry about or normal. Is there another way to tell if a computer might have a keylogger or trojan horse installed? I use The Cleaner, Spybot, and Norton Anti-Virus, but these programs can miss things. Is there a website that gives any security related info? Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you

Thank you Columbo for answering my question. I forgot to mention I am using Windows Me. I did check msconfig and everything that appears there I am familiar with. I just had one last question. Is it possible for someone to install a keylogger or trojan horse that would run without appearing in the start-up group of msconfig? Thanks again for your help.

If you're ever worried that you may have any trojan horses and what not (that one of those listed apps may miss), just post you're startup list here. It's a small program that creates a small *.txt file with details of exactly what is running when you start the PC. We love it here! I'll be back in a jiffy with a link...

Edit:Click Here

Download Startup list, and just post the file here if you're stuck.
