    Keyboard Virus
    Hi.
    I have just posted this in the virus section as well, so hope im not breaking any rules.
    I have an Eee Pc netbook, windows xp, dont use it much other than for web etc

    I think i have some sort of virus that is effecting the typing

    whenever i try and type anything the typing just starts automatiaclly, and randomlly, so i may be about to type the letter m for instance, but then a + sign will appear, and continue, even hitting the delete button, may stop it but let go of the delete button and the typing continues, and dosnt stop..

    This was happening on the netbook keyboard, so i tried using an external keyboard and for a few days the external keyboard was fine, but if i tried to use the built in keyboard the problem was still there

    anyway the problem is now happening with the external keyboard as well, so i cant do anything. using the mouse is fine, and as long as i dont touch the keyboard all is fine, then touch the keyboard and the typing starts

    Im sure its not a sticky keyboard, no interference from anothe keyboard, or anything like that so the only thing i can think of is a virus of some sort. ive ran my AVG and malware but nothing

    help.....
    Thanks

    I have heard that hitting Ctrl+Num Lock will fix the problem.

    HI
    Unfortunatley that did not solve the problem, and i fact the issue has got stranger.
    I have attached another keyboard to my note book, to see if that makes any difference. Now the external keyboard continually types the +++++++ and the netbook types the Spanish nnnnnnn, its a spanish netbook.....
    does anyone else have this issue or know of a solution??

    thanks
