How can you tell if someone has put a keystroke logger on your computer? What do you look for? Then how do you get it off? Thanks. Garner

Install a-squared (freeware), download the latest updates, then close down all other programs and run a full system scan.

I'm just as confused as john... Instead of searching for a keylogger and potentially finding one installed. Wouldnt it be easier for you just to sit down and talk to him about this? Ususally, keyloggers are put in place by people with malicious intent. If your husband is trying to see what you do on the internet without actually talking to you about it, maybe theres a reason for a keylogger to be on there...

I think what's happened is the husband and wife have both posted using the same name, garner.

If you need any technical advice about keyloggers, post back from a different computer.

I think that most reputable anti-virus programs will find keyloggers.

What does this mean? We don't need your family history, but if you could just stick to the relevant issues then we can start helping you.

btw, it's not a good idea to put all your personal details on a public forum. It makes it much easier for people to track and target you.
