Looking at a keylogger

Looking at a keylogger: Windows Performance Toolkit: Spyware Detection

A keylogger is classified as a virus/malware, it doesn't matter what the technical term is, its bad news. A keylogger records every single key stroke meaning every button you press on your keyboard is logged and then sent to a remote attacker. This means they get all of your usernames, your passwords and even the answers to your secret security questions like your mother's maiden name which you can't change. Advanced keyloggers can even record audio, take screenshots and even creepier stuff.
