    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into a new thread in our security and the web forum, only after doing the above.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Yes, follow the instructions in my post above.

    You obviously have some kind of virus/spyware infection.

    This probably won't help anybody but you can access the Task Manager by right clicking the Windows Taskbar and then clicking Task Manager. I think I recall having a virus that didn't allow me to open the Task manager, and you can use a program such as Spybot S&D that shows a list of running processes.

    The solution

    I have had this same problem in fact earlier today at a lan party My Keyboard decided to act up the same way,and also whenever we would play my keyboard would act as if esc and tab were being held down,I borrowed an extra keyboard and there was no problem.


    You have to buy a new keyboard.

    I recently had the same problem with the control key not functioning.

    What worked for me was;

    1) downloading Hi Jack This...

    2) Fixing and removing "yahoo object browser helper." I then rebooted and all was back to normal.

    I hope this helps someone.
