What are the best tools to use for making sure my computer isn't being used by a sneaky hacker. After reading about what happened to Half Life 2, I'm curious what I can use to make sure no hidden processes are on my machine logging keystrokes, secretly ftp'ing logfiles and Word docs, etc.

There are different types of applications that will help you to identify and remove those processes:
Most known are antivirus programs and personal firewalls. SpyBot and Ad-Aware are antispy and anti-adware software and are also able to detect some keyloggers.
