    I have a friend who has found, after having had her ID stolen, that she has a keystroke reading virus. She is taking care of her situation with redundant low level formats, restoration of her data from a previous date, and reconstruction of the data for the period she suspects brought in the virus. She exhausted all her tech resources prior to taking these steps, but nothing would even find the virus. She has several virus protection and detection programs on her computer, noone of them caught it, and no suggestions have proven successful

    What's out there that reads keystrokes (virus-wise) and how do I prevent it?

    Thanks.
