Keylogger Problem

Specs: Windows Vista
Keylogger - How do I Clean a Failed SATA Hard Drive
--------------------------------------------------
My bro-n-law installed perfect keylogger on sister's laptop (Vista). To avoid his detection, I have a failed hard drive that I was going to swap with the existing hard drive, hoping to fool him that there was a failure. How do I remove the existing data from this failed drive? He may want to try to recover the keylogger data from this drive. How do I fool him into thinking that the data was lost. My plan for the good drive was to recover the admin password, remove his user id and data, remove the keylogger program, and set the drive in a USB enclosure. Since this laptop is several years old and is an extra one in the house, he will not spend the money for a new hard drive. My sister needs to use this computer sometimes when her work computer goes down. She can use the clean drive in an USB enclosure to operate the computer when he is not around. All suggestions will be appreciated.

How about formating the hard disk but you must first make a back up to a computer then format that drive. But have you tried a simple spyware remover or antivirus?

Sis wants to keep things civil. She knows that he installed the program. He thinks she does not know about it. If she reformats the hard drive or uses a spyware program to remove it, he will know that he was busted. He may try again with a better program (not free) and she is back to her present situation. With the bad drive installed, the computer will not run. Since he won't pay for a new hard drive, the laptop will get buried in a closet. Now the good drive can be cleaned and made available to her if she needs to use another computer. I need to remove the data on the bad drive in case he takes it somewhere to have the keylogger data recovered.

Look it's alright just remove the key logger if he replace it with new one then up date your remover then it'll remove it again. Because if you buy a new computer again then he'll also think on putting one key logger to it again. So you'll be back to square once again. but the question is what is your brother's purpose by putting a key logger in his own computer?
