Are there any tutorials on the algorithm(s) of detecting spyware, adwae, keylogger, trojans etc.... All my searches have just produced software programs that can detect it. I'm more intersted in how it detects it? I'm not exactly sure where to get started... Any tutorials or books would be great.

Guys never mind the question. I can see where PowerIT is leading too. I'm kind of insulted to be honest. You shouldn't imply these types of things.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

You shouldn't be instulted. It's just one of the rules here at EE. Do no harm and don't help the bad guys. So we have to ask.
And I still am glad to help. I know I have such a reference on viruses at home. I'll have a look and see if it also references other malware.

OK, the book I was referring to is: The Art of Computer Virus Research and Defense, by Peter Szor (Addison-Wesley Professional, 744 pag).
It's very recent (2005) and currently incredibly cheap on Amazon
Another one I recommend, although a bit older (2003): Malware: Fighting Malicious Code by Ed Skoudis, Lenny Zeltser (Prentice Hall, 432 pag).
