I believe some of my family members have already installed a keylogger on my computer, but I can't detect it. How can I stop this keylogger to continue hurting me?

Know your programs:
EnditAll < A more powerful process tab
HijackThis < This is often the best way to remove key components to any virus unless it's been rooted in which case you'll need to google some anti-rootkits and/or reformat your computer (reformatting is not a surefire way to remove a rootkit, i.e. if it injects itself into the boot or bios).
The best way to avoid keyloggers or any other virus for that matter is to be smart about what you're downloading or viewing and to weigh the risks.
