I have all the signs of what I think is a keylogger. Slowdown when typing in internet forms and texts boxes, three dots appearing before I type anything. I even had to copy this from notepad. Any good programmes to fight this menace. Someone even changed my Msn password, but not my proper email - thank god.
(I have SpywareGuard, Spyvest and SpywareBlaster but they aren't catching this keylogger)

Slow typing does not imply a keylogger. The concept of a keylogger is to go undetected.
You may not have enough RAM with all the apps your running.
If your RAM or CPU, video card memory is not sufficient to handle the tasks your dumping on it then you will see lagging, thats latency. Latency is a delay generally in milliseconds of your signal from any hardware device to another. example, Hard Drive to sound card keyboard.

just a couple points to add ,one problem i come across often is people using the system hogging windows media player for playing music whilst surfing the net, if you listen to music and surf at the same time a good small music player is NAD, and it uses hardly any resources. as far as your spyware worries i would recommend spybot search and destroy and adaware. run spybot first and adaware after if theres anything on your system they will find it, i personally would not consider using anything else, if you want to try them for your own peace of mind do a search in the requests board and you will find both apps listed .
