You can if the the keylogger is acting like a true trojan but at the same time, didn't alter the netstat -an output.

Run it from a command prompt & pay attention to the foreign address column. Look for a high port number after the IP address.

If the keylogger is sending the info through emails, it's another story.

What makes you think you have one & why don't you just remove it?

You may be able to obtain the IP address used by whoever was using the keylogger, but don't expect that this will do you much good. Most people access the internet with a dynamic IP address so the address you find today might be in use by someone else tomorrow, or sooner. He may also be doing the keylogging from a public network or from a network or computer he has hacked. Keyloggers generally take precautions that they are not traced.

That's not true. I can't count the times I've seen malware & anti virus software running side by side, in hijack this logs. The anti virus software was blind. It didn't see anything. I wouldn't even use a free AV program.

Many keyloggers are employed by parents interested in watching out for their kids. There is a site I found that will provide apps for the cell phones and computers that do this at parentalcontrolapps.com

What does that have to do with the original question? He doesn't want to buy a keylogger.
