Question about Keylogger viruses and stored Password data




I was out with one of my sisters tonight, and, on the way home, she asked about "Keylogger viruses" ... in particular, if she had saved her identity and password data for a site (pick a site, any site) so that when she went to the site, her stuff was auto-filled in, so she could get to a site, .... and then, after her data had been stored on her computer, she then got infected by a Keylogger virus, would her identity and password data be collected by the Keylogger??

At first thought I said "NO", because no keys had been pressed ... but is it that simple?? Would the keylogger also register that a file had been accessed to supply the log-in data?? The data didn't come from the keyboard, but did come from somewhere.
