Default Keylogger found on my machine

Norton didn't even notice it, adaware doesn't detect it.

A routine run of Spybot S&D was the only app that found it:

c:\windows\system32\h@tkeysh@@k.dll

Anyone else have this file? It supposedly replaces scanregw.exe on Win9x machines too.

Could be a trojan?

I use both Spybot and Adaware. What one does not find the other generally will.

I have had that appear a few times. If I remember correctly it is often used with some Game Trainers to allow keystrokes to be used to engage a disengage cheats. I can't remember if its dangerous on its own or only when used by some key logger program. Hmmm.. here is a link on removal http://www.pestpatrol.com/PestInfo/h/h@tkeysh@@k.asp

I was a little concerned when I found this on my machine. I deleted it with Spy bot.
After reading about game trainers here I knew I only had one on my PC:GTA_Vicecity_TRAINER_20_by_hyunicz. I loaded it, shut it down and ran spybot again.
Lo and behold, h@tkeysh@@k was back on my system.


I believe this is the source.
