Also, they come in 2 forms, one is a hardware based keylogger and the other
is software based.... detecting a software based one is hard to tell you
without knowing ur OS?

If its hardware based, u can check this, check the back of your computer, "I
think" they sit between ur keyboard and the keyboard port, it just sits
there passively capturing data.  Its what those hackers used a bit back that
were busted for hacking into the bank.... hardware keyloggers were found....

If you have a rootkit installed on your system the easiest/most secure
thing to do is nuke the system and reinstall the OS. Change any
passwords ASAP and check to see what (if any) damage was done with the
use of these passwords.
