I have a friend who believes there is a keylogger on their computer being used by someone who has been harrassing them.  This is MacBook Pro laptop.  The os is Mac OS version 10.4.11.  The person harrassing my friend likely did have access to the system.

Based on the advice of experts here, Ive run 2 different anti-virus programs but am not sure how to interpret the results.  The two anti-virus programs used are: , .

The results of the virus is shown below:
"/Library/Application Support/Objective Development/Little Snitch/rules.xpl"
"/System/Library/User Template"
"/Users/damienwoodson/Desktop/Dell Back-Up/Keep My Desktop/Security & Anti-Virus Protection/Ad-Aware SE Personal.exe"

Does anything here look like a keylogger might be present?

Also, is there a way to get little snitch to show the history of all programs attempting to access the internet for a period of time?
