Besides spybot S&D, malware bytes, Super Antispyware, and the usual "consumer" software out there, is there any software out there that can detect key loggers reliably?

Malwarebytes in Safe Mode with networking should do the trick.

What I am looking for is a KeyLogger Detector, not necessarily a remover. Need to find out if a laptop has a key logger for a pending court case. Need to be put on the trail of what the big boys use

Use some other programs rathar than microsoft products to see what process are running. some times Taskmanager and process explorer can not show hidden process running.
you third party program to see if any hidden process. you can search on google
1. gmer
2. process hacker
and more

every better antivirus will detect every key logger, since key logger is not an malware, you must enable option to detect potentially unsafe applications and potentially unwanted applications. Hopefully you could try ESET NOD32

Hi;
KanalQko is right. Every beter antivirus will detect it. But, If you want to hide your key strokes from 3th party keyloggers, you can use Keyscrambler software.

ZionTech1,
did you look at the top ten reviews?  They are all anti-keyloggers.  Nunmber 1 says:
Zemana AntiLogger is a state-of-the-art weapon against keylogger software. This anti-keylogger software is light-years ahead of the competition. Surprisingly, this robust protection comes to the user at a minimal cost
