    I am helping a friend with an Acer Aspire 4330. The problem is some of the keyboard keys produce multiple entries(of varying letter) when pressed. All hardware drivers are updated, however acer shows no keyboard drivers to update. A USB keyboard works fine when plugged in. My question is this: could this be a spyware related issue? I want to make sure before I tear this apart and try cleaning/replacing the keyboard.

    No, it's not malware if an external keyboard works fine. The problem is with the physical keyboard. Before you start replacing parts, find out what happened to it. If someone spilled something on it, the keyboard might not be the only thing damaged. It looks like an old laptop. Not worth sticking much money into.
