BotHunter- How Do I Know If I Have a Bot?

Hi, I was looking at this software that monitors your traffic to see if you have a bot, it's called BotHunter, I won't post a link because I don't think it's allowed you can google it. But, the current release isn't available for W7 yet, so I was wondering if there is another equivalent that could do the job.

I currently have an AV, and several spy-ware programs, but you never can be too cautious. It doesn't scan your system rather it monitors in and out going traffic to see if it resembles Bot activity.

Has anybody ever used BotHunter before? I think I might have a bot, but I'm always paranoid I'm infected.
