Among other programs, I run Pest Patrol.

In July 04 I installed Sonic DVD suite.  (haven't used it yet-for whatever that's worth. I bought and installed a Sony DVD recorder)
Today PP is telling me that the file:
Sonic\DLA\install ssdiag.exe
is a keylogger The ssdiag.exe is dated Monday, July 14, 2003,
The PP site has no info on this 'unknown' trojan.
       http://pestpatrol.com/PestInfo/u/unknown_trojan.asp

Do I REALLY have a keylogger? I have and run Spybot, Ad-Aware, BoClean and PC-Cillin in addition to Pest Patrol.  

Would a keylogger show any systemic symptoms like slowing or whatever?
Thanks

Hello shlew =)

I was unable to find any Susupisious information abt this process, all websites state this as Equinox "Configuration and DOS Diagnostic for DOS and Windows platforms"

I must say its not a necessary process,,,, but as far as my research shows,,,,, its not related to any keylogger type of thing..... :-/

Hi Schlew,

If you suspect a trojan in your machine you can download and run Trojan Remover. This utility is designed specifically to combat trojans. Free download from:

Thanks, guys, I'm convinced.

The scan came up empty.

I'm not sure how  Equinox "Configuration and DOS Diagnostic for DOS and Windows platforms" affects things but if  Sheharyaar is OK with it, I am.

Hi shlew,

For added peace of mind you may also want to run Keylogger Hunter. It's a free download that tracks down keylogging activity:
