hi guys

been have strange pc problems lately, from time to time, my pc would act very strange, like for example some days out of the week or month, whenever i do some typeing it would type something different like if i type this " i know my abc's" it would be like this "asdddddd" or something different. like now my capslock , and shift is disabled, and whenever i play one of my rpg games online, i cant type in-game or type in my password its like disabled , but i can type fine in this forum. same goes with my other older pc sometimes, like some of the keys would be disabled like w,a b, or something, then when it restarts its fine. i usually have my virus scanners active, i dont surf much, i use avast scanner, didnt find anything same goes with antivirus zonealarm. i must have altered something in my config dont know what though, never mess around with it. now my backspace wont delete whole sentence as fast as usual like when i hold it down it would auto delete , now it just erases 1 by 1 with click.

I would also suggest installing Ewido malware remover. It seems to find a lot of stuff that adware and spybot miss. and a nifty little virus scanner that is free is Smart Cop

You should be scanning at least once a week if you do much of any surfing. and be sure you check the updates before each scan. There are new definitions all the time
