I used to have BPK keylogger on my system to monitor who was on my pc when I wasn't home. When Microsofts tool came out, it picked it right up and asked me if I wanted to delete it, accidentally, I did and the keylogger was no more. It saw it as a trojan, also, Spybot and Adware picked it up and wanted to delete it, but I exluded it from the scan so it CAN it removed f. I doubt the main file is hidden anyways. BPK was in stealth mode which meant there wasn't no uninstaller, no startup splash screen, no icon, etc. but there was a folder, called by default, bpk, or whatever I wanted to call it. I doubt that it will be that hard to remove. And reformatting is not the answer.

Woah hold up....IIIIIIII ...didnt install ANYTHING. SCROLL BACK AND READ AGAIN...... She installed this damn winspy program on her PC to track what her kids were doing while she wasnt home. SHE...installed it and came to me asking for help to get rid of it because she lost the password.

Beleive what ya want I was just trying to help her avoid having to wipe out her whole hard drive and reinstall windows.
If I needed something like a "lost windows XP Cd key" I sure as hell wouldnt post a stupid question like that on the forum.

Apparenly winspy cant be snaged by a spyware program, and I already had her run hijack this and checked the logfile and theres nothing in there

anyway thanks for the help i guess , appreciate the crucifiction

ShoobieRat, just do me one favor in the future when someones posts a valid question, read it carefully before going on the attack. Not one in that qestion did I say that I installed a keylogger on her machine, for whats its worth shes also a coworker and friend of mine just wanting to see what kind of websites her kids have been visiting while she was at work.

I have no reason to run spyware on clients machines, I could care less where they go online, what thier passwords are etc. Unless I come across something disturbing like kiddie porn on a machine I could care less whats on there

aight no hard feelins, just read the question carefully first

Information we could have used in the beginning. Regardless of the exact wording, we get a lot of similar posts that follow the same syndrome of wording. The whole "I have a friend of a friend who has a computer that's got illegal software on it..."

And you can't blame me or anyone really for being overly suspicious and wanting more explanations. Keyloggers are a shady subject area.

I was giving you the benifit of the doubt, and it came through. Don't worry 'bout it.
