    xoftspy tells me that I have a keylogger called PCTattletale but windows
    defender doesnt pick it up nor does Norton 2007 protection centre nor does
    Hijackthis nor spybot S&D so do i have it or not?

    In a recent post a user told me that it must have been installed manually if
    it is there but I havent installed anything other than the os and office
    (apart from of course the antispy progs I have mentioned)

    Is PCTattletale a part of the parental control software in Vista?

    how would I find the program? Norton doesnt detect it none of the online
    scanners detect it but xoftspy does? does xoftspy have false results
    aytomatically installed?

    Xoftspy should have given you a path to where the supposed file is. Is
    Xoftspy certified for Vista? I think it is far more likely that this is
    a false-positive. Find the file that Xoftspy is reporting and contact
    Xoftspy's tech support for further help.

    I'm pretty sure that this is a false positive. This subject came up a couple
    of months ago and I think that is what the conclusion was. Try searching for
    it in the microsoft.public.windows.vista.general group - I'm pretty sure it
    was in there.
