Hello There,
Just thought I would let you Know that when I downloaded an update for Inter/video it came back with a virus that traced every key stroke on my Keyboard.etc
I only found out by running a spywear programme I do not use often called Steganos, but Microsoft,Spybot,and A.Adware did not pick it up and they are usually very good.

Has any one else had this problem?

Regards

Anti spyware programs don't always detect viruses - after all, they are for Spyware detection, not Virus detection. If you think you may have a virus, you need to be using a virus scanner such as AVG, instead of relying on anti-spyware programs to pick them up.

i doubt very much you got it from an offical update, however if you got it from a warez site it proberly serves you right.

edit: naturally you need to fix your antivirus and i hope you didn't let the keylogger through your firewall. it would be a wise idea to change ALL passwords includeing any online accounts (bank, paypall, trademe etc)
