Key Logger

My Key Logging programme says the "listed modules are monitoring your keyboard." The file is shown as idleproc.dll. There is a yellow warning symbol but it also states "no known pests". The file path is shown as "programme files AOL 8a." Should I delete this file, quarantine it, or mark it as safe or unsafe?

This is the first time I have run the key logging programme and, hopefully, this is just part of the AOL set up and nothing to worry about.

Go here for a free scan. The programme has a good scan for keeloggers - click here

Thanks, but the programme I'm using is called Pest Patrol and I'm a bit worried about scanning with another programme when the "problem" has already been identified.

Just checked on your free scan recommendation and it is from Pest Patrol so back to square one.

It's the idle process within aol and it is merely waiting for you to type something.

Thank you annon1, and thank you velodrome for your advice also.

Don't worry about scanning with another programme, like most people on this forum I also use Adaware and Spybot S&D
