    LMAO.
    Why the hell would your Dad put a keylogger onto your system? Sounds stupid to me. At least I have rights to my own computer

    You have four options.

    1. Re-install Windows/Format your computer and install at least avast!
    2. Install Linux - Keyloggers/Trojans etc. NEVER EVER EVER get into your computer.
    3. Tell your Dad off.
    4. Buy a new laptop.

    thats not true. its more difficult to do because most of the keyloggers / trojans out were designed for Windows based systems, but that does not mean that they could not be installed onto a linux machine.

    That's true, a keylogger wouldn't even need root access, just the account that's running X. It would be a lot easier to detect and remove than on a Windows system, though, since it wouldn't be able to hide itself effectively without root (and with SELinux, not even then).

    Ok, unfortunitly tech_support options 1,3,4 are almost impossible as for the following reasons:
    1. Its not my computer *my dad bought it for me*
    2. If i tell him off he takes it away *because its his*
    3. I can't re-install windows cuz my dad is the holder of the software...

    But option 2 sounded pretty interesting
    Linux systems, whats the major difference, i need my laptop to be able to be used at school like for taking notes and stuff...

    parents use keyloggers in an attempt to see what their kid is doing while on the net. It offers more security than just watching the child over his/her shoulder, because it has the appearance like no one is watching, when really every stroke of your fingers is being logged, and then accessed by the other person. I believe this was the original intent for "keyloggers", but was adapted for malicious use at a later date.

    Linux is another type of Operating System, you are probably aware of Mac(Macintosh) / and obviously PC(windows).
    well one, Linux Distributions are FREE, however it is much less "user" friendly then a Windows-Based system. An advantage is that the majority of virus' and malware have been designed to attack windows based-systems, so chances of you being affected by one is less, but at the same time, installing new programs is the simple click on the "executable" file.
    If you do a search on google I am sure you will be able to find multitudinous resources comparing different systems and the pros/cons of each

    you could uncheck all of those processes, hit apply and reboot. then theonly ones that will start are your critical applications... this is much like running "safe mode" in windows.

    mine does too, but those are mandatory processes, so they will automatically start upon reboot.
