  1. whenever i open my computer, it starts typing random things.

    for example i cant write a normal text. because it seems like the 0 and . keys are stuck but they are not. so i get something like this appearing on my screen.

    ex- .....................................00000000000000000000000000............

    also everytime i click on a file a popup comes up asking if i want to delete the file. as if the delete button is stuck. but it actually isnt.

    my start menue is always popping up like it is being held down. and same with all the F keys on the top of the keyboard. after unplugging the keyboard im still getting the same problem.

    anyone know how to rid this problem?

    Have you tried another keyboard? (ideally a USB direct connection keyboard)

    Could be a virus / malware. Maybe post a log with HJT so we can check if theres something that shouldn't be there.

    If anything you can back up your computer and reintall your OS. If the problem still occurs after the OS is reinstalled, then it is no doubt a hardware problem.

    Shouldn't they do the Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions as I suggested first?
    Otherwise there's no use I feel. ie you could be chasing Virus\Spyware that the guide can remove on its own

    Anyway, that's my thoughts
    Oh and I agree with the Re-install, which will confirm Hardware
    Actually you could use a LiveCD like Ubuntu too

    Sorry I read it too fast =(
    Yes do the 8 Step Removal Process as kimsland suggested. Sorry again.
