How to Remove the SpectorSoft Keylogger

By Tim Mammadov

The Spector Pro Keylogger by SpectorSoft is a commercial spyware program. This application records every key pressed when you use instant messaging programs, send emails or browse the Internet. In addition, Spector Pro records what programs you open on the computer and what files you download using peer-to-peer (P2P) applications. Although a legit program, this spyware is installed without the PC user's knowledge or consent and is hard to remove using anti-spyware programs. You can get rid of this program manually if you suspect someone is watching what you do on your computer.
