I have a client who suspect an ex-spouse installed some sort of keylogging/spying software on their laptop.  other than Rogue Killer, Malwarebytes, etc, is there any way to see if there is something installed?  Worse case we can just reload the machine but discovery would be much easier.  Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I usually use ComboFix. Start computer from safe mode, and just follow 3-4 steps. After that if something is still fishy I use Eset online scanner, from safe mode as well.

A general scan with Malwarebytes might be a good place to start, and it is free.

Of course, there are hardware keyloggers too so if this is  a desktop, look for anything unusual attached to the computer.
