Windows 7: Surefire way to remove possible keylogger?

Surefire way to remove possible keylogger?

Hello. Recently I accidentally mis-clicked on a suspicious link, and later found out it was a keylogger once I had money stolen from me. I'm temporarily secure at the moment from losing anything valuable online, and I want to know methods for detecting a keylogger if you have one installed without your knowing? I ran numerous anti-virus scans with malewarebytes and a paid version of VIPRE in safe mode with networking, checked my CMD with: "netstat -ano", and looked through all of my running processes and checked their file locations. So far everything seems okay and nothing suspicious is happening, but I'm still paranoid.

Any other recommendations any of you could give me for detecting a possible hidden keylogger? And do any of you know any surefire ways to get rid of one? Would a factory reset work?
