Key logger?

by Watts832 / March 11, 2010 4:47 AM PST

I was looking under the task manager under the services tab and seen one running called "KeyIso" from CNG Key Isolation. I was wondering if it was a key logger or what it was. Any help? And also where can I go to find out what the different Processess are that are listed in the task manager. Thanks.

What does it say when you enter the process name into Google?

lsass.exe is a Windows service associated with storing cryptographic information related to network connections. It should not be terminated/disabled unless you know for a fact that you do not need it.

Regarding other processes, the best way is to look them up with a general web search on Yahoo, Bing, or Google.

Hope this helps,

In the future you can find out the answer to information on the program running by opening the Task Manager, clicking on Application and then clicking on Go To Process.

I have the *same* thing under services and the PID is 572 > CNG Key Isolation >status Running and Group is blank !
I *know* the people upstairs are in my computer as .........being in a crappy apartment ......... I can hear everything *they * say* and they can hear me . This means I don't mention passwords or anything about the computer .

The guest account is off but I Logged on and then it wouldn't let me log back on as Admin until I yelled so loud they gave it back ! ARGH - this *has* to be a virus that Kaspersky Internet Security isn't catching ! What do I have to do? Unplug the computer each time I'm not on it ? I can't even change the password on my computer - it just won't "allow" me to !
