I looked up ActMon, and it is "powerful monitoring software" that can get your windows log-in password, see keystrokes, etc! Apparently, you can buy it! So, obviously if you didn't install it on your computer, someone did....

mirjel please don't offer malware advice

The user has been instructed to go to the Malware Removal forum by one of our experts, once he does, his problem will be fixed. We cant fix his problem in the Windows XP forum
