    Hello,
    You can download a software named as Process explorer and install it.
    When you run it, it will all the running processes on your system.
    If any key logger is installed on your system it will be listed in the list.
    From there you can end the process. It will be un-installed.

    YOu cannot find the location of logs that a keylogger generates since every keylogger has a password.
    It can be seen only by installer person.
    And yes all the logs are send to email of person who has installed it.
    It happens every time your computer is connected to internet.
    Regards...

    Re: How to check Keylogger on windows Vista?

    Hello friends,

    Purchase an Anti-key logger program.

    These applications work by blocking the algorithm that key loggers use to record data. Examples of such programs are Elite anti key logger, Advanced Key logger and Spy Shelter.

    As of 2010 these programs cost between $34.95 and $79.95 and work with Windows Vista or XP.

    The main advantage of these programs is that they don't require you to update the program's data base or do scans of your computer.

    These applications attack the root problem and disarm the key logger upon installation.


    Sign up for anti-spyware software. Spybot Search and Destroy is a good option and as of 2010 it is free.

    A couple of others are Spy Sweeper and Counterspy.

    These programs cost between $34.95 and $49.95 as of 2010. They will get rid of adware, spyware and key loggers.

    However, they need to be updated, and scans must be performed regularly.


    Download an anti-virus program. Key loggers can often be detected as viruses.

    However, this requires keeping your software program updated and to run scans at least every 30 days.

    A few available programs are Avast, AVG and Norton. A full system scan can take an hour or longer, depending on the size of your drive.

    Hope this solution works out............!!!!!!!!
