Default How do I remove The Keylogger without password?

My mom put a keylogger on my computer, so she knows what I'm doing when she is not around. How do I remove it?
My mother dosen't trust me even when I tell her the truth. So I am trying to figure out how to remove the keylogger? If anyone can help me, please do...
thanks

See if you can disable it via the registry although this won't be subtle.

Also does it run at startup? Maybe you can just disable it there using "msconfig"

Thanks, I'll try.

Yes, it runs at setup. But the keylogger has a password protection, I don't know the password, my mom knows. I've talked to her, but she is unwilling to give it to me.

Download spybot search and destroy and scan your computer with it.

Because she doesn't trust him and it's a privacy issue
