This is weird...I ran xoftspy, it sees the ardamax but it won't register it as a spyware. I searched for the akl.exe and the dll but it's not on my system...what's going on here?

I had exactly the same problem with Ardamax Keylogger and Xoftspy - it "sees" it but fails to identify it as a threat or remove it. I wound up reimaging my hard drive.

I am preplexed as to how it entered my system since I am running Norton Internet Security, Xoftspy, and Spybot Search & Destroy. All are updated weekly.

This could of happened when you installed a program you downloaded it from the internet
Ardamax has a feature to bind it to another file, so when you run the file that it was binded to, it silently installs along with the file your using

For me, the key comnination is Ctrl-Alt-Shift-H which brings it up in the task bar.

Another way of removing it is to download the software from their website (free version), one of the included .exe files is an uninstaller

The hotkey to open Ardamax Keylogger 3.9 is ctrl+shift+alt+h, and ardamax keylogger hides the processes.And it is created in a folder like CSJ .

if you already uninstalled it... then after restarting your computer it is installed again...

you need to go to. C:, windows, system32, look for a folder named "MAIWEQ"
it is disguised... i destroyed it my self... after deleting this f......! folder...

Anyone having problems with ardamax uninstalation process can simply visit the official site and search in it for the ardamax uninstall tool. it is free and does a great job. After using it, just restart. For all others trying to do it manually, you should know that every version of ardamax has its own name and creates its own instalation folder. I mean that version 3.9 creates a folder like MAIWEQ, and 4.0 creates completely different one. Also the .exe file have different names every time you install the keylogger. So using the official uninstall tool from the www.ardamax.com site is the best option so far.
