http://spycop.com/product.html claims to be able to detect it.  

Also, Symantec can and will detect it.

don't know how valid a solution that is more than 3 years old.  would think that spectorsoft would have revised their program once uncloak method was published.   examined my computer for what was in the solution, and do not have any of the registry keys.  just don't know if that really resolves it due to age of the solution.   thanks

Just wanted to add some additional info in case it's helpful...

When I've used Spectorsoft, it recommends setting exclusions in the AV client since some will detect it, including Symantec.  Also, Spectorsoft allows you to customize the keystroke combination, and in addition to this, a custom password is required to bring it out of stealth mode.

But as noted, if your AV software picks it up, it will disable or remove it completely.
