    Damnit.

    This keylogger keeps showing up when I do a scan with Spyware Doctor

    Apparently it gets "removed" but I recently found out it restores itself via System Restore.

    So I had to clear my system restore points..

    God this is a pain, now I am going to have to change my password to my e-mail, paypal, banking account, etc...

    Not my BHW account though, i doubt the hacker would give a damn.

    Moral of the story: Get a Mac.
    Macs can get malware, but the chances are very, very slim.

    Get better spyware removal. Find where the server has injected to and remove it manualy.

    nah. but thanks.
    A keylogger once got my bank information, the only thing that saved me was the random code generator.

    To access my bank I need to type in:
    name
    password
    random code

    My bank account got locked because of too many random code tries.

    I hate them too.
