We know that key loggers are the most effective and most annoying means of getting compromised over login id/password on the web or any application.... and your whole privacy is breached.

Is there a way to detect key loggers yourself, instead of relying on an anti-virus solutions for this purpose ? What is the logic behind a key-logger detector... ? Do I need to write a scipt to look for log files that correspond to key strokes, or is there a better approach than this ?

Wouldn't writing "a script to look for log files that correspond to key strokes" inherently require that you also write a keylogger of your own? – Iszi Oct 8 '11 at 1:50

You could download or write a script such as Neuber's Spy Protector which has an option of blocking keyboard monitoring.
