I am fairly sure I have a Keylogger but scans find nothing

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
So a few days ago I get a warning message on my Gmail account saying it was logged in some other location and that I should change my password immediately. Also my Battle.net account was accessed as well and they went after my WoW account which is inactive and I no longer play but they somehow activated it and took everything. That isn't really my primary concern at the moment though. I also ran a few different virus/malware scans and they found nothing.

I changed both my Gmail and Battle.net passwords to 2 completely different things yesterday afternoon. This morning I wake up to find both had been changed back again.

Considering I changed the passwords to totally different things they were somehow accessed again within a matter of hours, and that just leads me to believe I have a keylogger on my system. However, as I said before, nothing was found on the scans.

Which program do you use for scanning?

Don't scan with AV as it's pretty much useless. Use a program like SpywareGuard

I have Avast run weekly scheduled scans but just to be safe I ran it the day this all happened. I also downloaded and ran Malwarebytes as a recommendation from the Battle.net account restoration instructions.

I would recommend you to try the trial out for this program.

It's a specific program to deal with keyloggers.

This.

And after that, wipe your drives and do a fresh install. I know its a pain and very time consuming, but its worth it.

I just tried to download and install that but I keep getting the error message that the file is corrupted.

I installed the trial of that Antilogger program and it keeps popping up alerting me that League of Legends is monitoring my keystrokes... :/
