Run virus/spyware scans.

if they find keyloggers/trojans then there is a "chance" someone is reading your convos/keystrokes.

Unless it is someone you know I doubt you'd be of any interest to world in general, I mean, what info would you have that is worth stealing???

AVG has both anti virus and anti spyware for free, there are numerous online free scans, Trendmicro, panda, bitdefender etc.

What anti virus do you have installed??

what makes you think you might have a keylogger? What has happened for you to believe that?

If you're talking about a device that logs your keys, look for it around your computer, but if there is one, they generally have some sort of lock on them so you can't take them off unless you know the combo.

If you're talking about software devices, that would be spyware, make sure your spyware systems have recently been updated and ran. Make sure programs don't startup automatically that shouldn't be.
