Spy software for computer monitoring

I have installed the trial version of a program that is a stealth logger to monitor husbands online activities.
It has worked great!
My question is, if my husband wants to get back at me for catching his online porn addiction and monitor me, can the program he downloads/uses detect the program I have that is monitoring him?
Will he be able to be stealthy?

I couldnt find a forum to place this.

Keyloggers and monitoring software rarely search for other keyloggers monitoring software...that's certainly not a standard feature. However, there are two things to note:

1.) Some such software takes screenshots as well as recording characters typed, so his software may catch you accessing your software, and vice versa.

2.) Antispyware software such as Webroot's SpySweeper and Sunbelt's CounterSpy can detect most keyloggers and monitoring software and remove them manually, just like you'd kill off a virus. Thus, there are limitations to the stealth capabilities.

Hope this helps,

P.S. Good luck with the marriage!

ALL of "bit" appeared in the "submit" window, but it did not appear in the final forum viewable window.

Hence, my subsequent post.

I almost downloaded the Webroot Spysweeper but it seems it is only for the MAIN Admin for the computer because it asked information only pertaining to the MAIN Admin, which is not me so I cancelled the download.
I know husband has some sort of program installed that doesnt allow Stealth keylogger to see his log in screen names or passwords any longer.
Any other ideas for any other programs to try to see if there are any new programs installed on home computer that prevents the stealth keylogger from picking up log in names and passwords?

Thank you for the information.
I will try it and download it when I get home.
I downloaded at work and it is pretty cool and fairly easy to understand.

Thank you.
I'll give an update if I find it works!
Your help is greatly appreciated.
