You can try run hijackthis and look at the log, it usually tells you a lot generally about running applications and suspicious ones
If you're not sure you can post the log here
Otherwise just look up the task manager, usually most monitoring programs don't hide from there, they may have a strange and misleading name but may still appear in the list or programs or services
