    From what I can tell the hijackthis looks clean, although I'm not an expert. Also, from what I can tell, you've been using a P2P client or a Torrent Client haven't you (i.e Limewire, Morpheus, Bittorrent etc)(look at your AVG Scan)? I would stay away from those if I were you. Also, when did you keyboard stop working, before or after you got rid of the trojans?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Delete all files in AVG Antispyware quarantine.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard,ShellNext = "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe"

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: WRNotifier - WRLogonNTF.dll (file missing)

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your computer.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).


    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Let`s check for any rootkits.

    Download the AVG Antirootkit programme. Disconnect from the net and install the programme, then restart your computer.

    Run the programme and click the click "Perform in-depth search." Allow AVG to complete the scan. The AVG scanner will give the "Rootkit path"
    * Select the Rootkit Driver by placing a checkmark against it and click "Remove selected items." Next, agree for the terms and conditions that is displayed by AVG and click "OK" to reboot the PC. Reconnect to the net.

    Download and run the Blacklight programme. Follow all the instructions carefully.

    Also, run the Nolop programme as per these instructions.

    Please Download NoLop to your desktop from one of the links below...

    First close any other programs you have running as this will require a reboot
    Double click NoLop.exe to run it
    Now click the button labelled "Search and Destroy"
    <<your computer will now be scanned for infected files>>
    When scanning is finished you will be prompted to reboot only if infected, Click OK
    Now click the "REBOOT" Button.
    A Message should popup from NoLop.
    If not, double click the program again and it will finish Please Post the contents of C:\NoLop.log along with a fresh HJT log

    --If you receive an error, "mscomctl.ocx or one of its dependencies are not correctly registered," please download mscomctl.ocx to your system32 folder then rerun the program.-- http://www.boletrice.com/downloads/mscomctl.ocx

    Let me know the results please.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    That sounds hauntingly familiar to a problem I had with 2 different Toshiba Satellite laptops!!! Both had to have keyboard replacements.

    As tomrca says, your HJT log is clean. I assume the results of the rest of the scanners also came back clean, in which case it probably is a keyboard problem.

    Regards Howard :)
