I just ordered a new computer for Newegg, and it came in the mail but I am still using my old one right now, and haven't began to put it together. Anyway, I plugged my new keyboard onto this computer just for kicks, and is it possible that any spyware/adware could have made it its way into the keyboard, and then it will upload onto my new computer? I'm probably being paranoid but I don't want to mess that one off the bat. I'll wait a day or two. Just kidding. (I'm funny).

I highly doubt there`s anywhere in the keyboard for spyware to fester. Don`t worry.
Exactly...keyboards send a signal - they don't recieve or store stuff.
