- We live in an age where new cyber threats emerge everyday, and antivirus programs simply can't keep up. What to know if you're being spied on? Hello, I'm Thomas Pantels, and welcome to my course, Windows Performance Tool Kit, Spyware Detection. In this course you'll see a key logger, also known as spyware, get scanned by antivirus software, and not get flagged as being that. This key logger records every single key you press on the keyboard. It collects user names, passwords, credit card numbers, your secret answers to your security questions.
It records the answers that don't change like your mother's maiden name, or the name of your first pet. Worst of all, it can gather your social security number resulting in identity theft. Simply put, it's very bad news, and there are key loggers out there, like this one that go completely undetected by antivirus programs. I'll show you how to see if your machine has been infected with this nasty spyware. And more importantly how to delete it. Ready? Let's get started.
