Well, your wow account detected the keylogger quite nicely I'd say.

Most keyloggers will go undetected. Keyloggers can also by physically connected to your PC although I doubt someone would have physical access.

If you want to remove it from your system and be sure /format C:

malwarebytes, superantispyware, combofix

Have you ever logged in your WoW account from a computer that wasn't yours? Who else has access to your computer? Are you sure the password was unguessable (long enough, no pattern, etc.)?

Ok, if you want advice here you go:
Format your harddisk, reinstall everything from trusted sources only and keep your system up to date.
If you say it was a keylogger that program had to run with admin privileges - and it did. That means that it could have done anything to you system. And since you cannot tell what it did there is no chance of fixing anything.
Questions?

Brute force attempts do more than use dictionary words now. They try a bunch of obvious stuff like qwerty, q1w2e3 and such.

Have you gone through your processes that are running in task manager?

Also, why not create a regular user account (non admin) and play games/browse the web from that account, instead of using an admin account all the time?
