My ISP is AOL. Its anti-spyware software keeps locating something called "Advanced Keylogger" and attempts to remove it. However, it must be resident in memory as it reinstalls itself on reboot. The registry location it removes is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Licences. I have been told that it may not be a security risk, just something that is a necesary part of another program. But i'm not so sure! I've run updated versions of AVG, Adaware, Spybot, Microsoft AntiSpyware and various other freebies but they all say my machine is clean. Its only AOL that picks it up. Anyway, I was advised to download and post a Hijack This Log - Maybe someone can help ease my paranoia!!! Here's the log and many thanks . . .
