Ok Im not sure if this is spyware or a virus or what. When I type somewhere that allows text (even such as this message box) wierd things happen. Little dots show up and then words just appear where the dots were? I took two screenshots of my IM's when it did it.......

Hi Jacqui R,

What kind of keyboard is it? What kind of connection, Wireless? Brand name and model? Is is old and could anything have spilt down inside of it? Any other information you can give us, like any changes to your computer lately?

I found another possible solution, it is possible that speech recognition could be causing it, if it is turned on:

Turn Off Speech Recognition

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. Click Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options.

3. Click Regional and Language Options.

4. On the Languages tab, select Details.

5. Under Installed services, select Speech Recognition, click Remove, and then OK.

6. Click OK to apply all the changes You may have to restart your computer

Lets see - its a HP Media Center edition keyboard, that is hardwired not wireless. The kids did spill ketchup on it the other day....hmmmmm but this just started today. I did install a bunch of free fonts that I got offline in the past 24 hours. Other than that I dont think anything else has gone on. I first suspected a stuck key or something like that, but it was typing real words - heck one time it even typed "Rothermel" - my last name!
