How can I get rid of keylogger software?

Question

I understand there are keyloggers that can be sent to you unknowingly through email(or even if someone has installed it on your computer) and they can transmit your activities to a remote computer without your knowledge. Being very dificult to detect even if you suspect there presence. Is there any way to determine who's computer your information is being sent to? And what is the best way to detect and remove this program if in fact it does exist??

Thank you for your help and time. Any help on this matter is greatly appreciated,

Dave

It is hard to see where key logger software is sending data to because usually the person who wrote the program, may have hidden that part well so incase that key logger gets reported to officials, he would be harder to catch On to the second part of your question, usually antivirus software like Norton or McAfee has something called auto protect that can get detect and get rid of key logger software I hope that helps!
