Can someone recommend a good key logger finder based on your personal or professional experience.

There are two main types of keyloggers: hardware keyloggers and software keyloggers. Do you suspect that you may have one on your computer?

Hardware Keyloggers are oldschool. They plug into PS/2 keyboards and then into the PS/2 port on a computer. Software keyloggers? Well I use Avira and it asks you, upon installation, what kind of stuff you want it to target especially, and keyloggers is on the list.

If you don't feel like switching AV software, I'd recommend either Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or SUPER Anti-Spyware.

Try this

If you can't find the key logger backup everything and reinstall Windows. Not all key loggers are software related. Look to see if a device was added between the keyboard cord and the computer. Others are harder to locate.

Thanks for all the replies guys. It's for a friend of mine, latey emails have been going out as if they came from her. They have been going out nightly. I had her run combofix, then use another computer and change her email password. As a last resort, I had her shut the email down. Now she says that every website that she needs to log into is asking her for authentication information all over again. I am just trying to avoid having to reinstall windows, but I feel that is the sure fire way to totally eliminate the threat.

What did combo report back? What about a clean with Malwarebytes?

Are the emails really coming from her computer? It could be that the Trojan is on someone else's computer and spoofing her email address as the sender.

Yeah that might be true about the spoofing. I have not physically looked at her computer, but I will this weekend. I did find a free app called key scrambler. I will let you all know what I discover this weekend.

I can recommend something far better then Malwarebytes as well as most other programs looked over in the past several years actually. In fact I bailed someone out when his older XP machine was hit with a bogus av program that created a new admin account and locked him out of running almost everything on his desktop!

The VIPRE Rescue Program is what I have to give thumbs up on for finding and removing just about bug on a Windows system. VIPRE Rescue - VIPRE Computer Recovery Solution from Sunbelt Software

First you download the main executable seen there which will then create a new folder to unpack files into. Immediately it goes to work scanning the entire OS drive in what looks like your typical command prompt window. This one red marked scores of bugs on the infected machine tested on and that was after removing the System Protect I-Worm infection.

Note the name was taken from an actual freeware that places a guard on the system regiatry and made to look like a regular av program in the email ads! Unfortunately my friend simply clicked on the spam and wound up with a big problem the free program there was able to clean up real fast!

I gave this a go on the old case here just replaced and that found a trojan inside a zip file still being stored for XP on one of the storage drives! This should find any keyloggers or rootkits, trojan downloaders, or other bugs rather fast when used! This is now being stored on a flash drive made up for data recovery stiick and would be the idea free tool to try out on the system in question.
