Looking for keylogger and alalyzer

I'm trying to analyze all keystrokes on several computers to get a list of most commonly typed phrases and creating shortcuts/hotkeys for them. I'm sure someone out there had done this before.

I'm looking for recommendations on a keylogger application and more importantly a text analizer that is capable of extracting common phrases, or perhaps a different method of acheiving these same result.

 Asking the users what they want the hotkeys to be is out of the question.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are plenty of KL programs out there, you should have no issue finding one, most AV's will find them and want to clean them just so you know. As a possible alternitive windows supplies a few registry entries for the last 10 or more programs used, files saved etc...
The MRU registry keys and the Explorer registry keys contain a wealth of information:
reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RunMRU
reg query HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\typedpaths
reg query -s HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
There are a few encoded (rot-13) entries that are useful in those hives, I'm working on a script that will decode them and allow you to connect to remote machines to read them. reg.exe cannot query the hkcu key for a remote computer.
Is this perhaps something along the lines your looking for?

Since there are plenty of hardware (USB) keyloggers readily available which AV software won't/cannot remove, and courts have repeatedly ruled that employers have the right to see anything employees type into (and receive on) company computers, what you really need is the phrase density analyzer.

There are lots of keyword and phrase analyzers out there, but they all seem to be aimed at web page makers... I couldn't find any that would accept a local document as input instead of a URL.

I'm sure there are routines and logarithms especially for this task, because archive programs like zip/rar/etc use them to find what can be 'compressed' in a file, but I'm not able to find a program that does so (inputting the phrase to find is not quite the same thing). Maybe you could repost your question specifically seeking phrase analyzer software, in the subject?
