    Contact your IT department. One possibility is that your work computer is infected with malicious software, which they need to know. The other possibility is that IT uses the software to monitor your activity, in which case, you need to know.

    It depends on the privileges and know how you have...

    First I think you should talk to your supervisor, then alert the IT department.

    Don't go straight to the IT department, it maybe them spying you, eheh smile

    And as soon as you detect it, run scans in every other computer on the network to make sure no one else is being spied!

    Before worying about what to do, the first consideration is how did you discover the hey logging software?  If you took action outside of an acceptable use policy, such as installling unapproved software, then the discovery may be a higher infraction than the discovered software.

    Key logging software at times fulfills valid functions, such as checking the amount of input from a data entry operator.

    If the discovery was legitimate then the best action is to contact the IT department.
