Step 2

Double-click on the file to start the installation process.

Step 3

Run the anti-malware application and scan your hard drive to identify hidden keylogger spyware on your computer. The scan results will display listings that are critical and non-critical. You should delete files that are critical. Non-critical files are simply files which track what your computer has done. They aren't malicious but can be safely removed.



Step 4

You must run and update an anti-malware application regularly or it won't completely protect you from keylogger spyware.
