Free KLP (Keylogger Program) keeps returning even after I kill the process in Process Explorer. Help!

I have removed it more than once now. I ran Process Explorer from Microsoft, found it, and killed it. Checked back a day later, it's back again. Killed it again, and I found the same thing the following day. I tried killing the process tree yesterday, thinking that that might do the trick, but sure enough, it was there again this morning! Could someone give me an explanation on this? How can I completely remove this keylogger?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You could make sure that it is disabled in the startup processes, and restart in Safe Mode. I would likely turn off System Restore while removing the program, run Malwarebytes, and turn System restore back on (if you want it) after everything has been cleaned up.

    If you need to completely remove keylogger program then you need to clean from the Registry.

    Go to 'cmd prompt' -> type 'regedit.exe' -> Delete the registry key (Keylogger) at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MenuOrder\Start Menu\Programs\".

    Sometimes it helps if you boot your computer in safe mode. Then run your anti-virus program. Sometimes you may need to run more than one. The databases they use for what to look for must be up to date as well. A couple good programs that are free are Spybot Search and Destroy, Malwarebytes and AdAware.

    Could you be a little bit more specific? How do I access startup processes? Sorry. Bit of a novice here. Thanks.

    @brijesh, I went to cmd prompt and typed what you said to type, but then what do I do? I hit enter, but it said, "this is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or hatch file." @ToddN200, I did what you suggested. Thank you, but it didn't solve my issue, unfortunately. I have another question; can the administer of the keylogger access the keylogger from someplace else? Whenever I deactivate it, could he/she simply reactivate it from wherever he/she is?

    Also, can I not press charges against this individual who is continually stalking me? I did not consent this keylogger to be put on my computer.
