If I enter gibberish, I can enter anything I want such as lasdj goseu4 ot;iba.... but if I enter my real password, it stops after the first five correct characters and will not allow me to continue unless I enter it again and again. I suspect that there is some tracking going on and when it figures out the remaining characters, it will have all the login info it needs to log on to my computer. I got frustrated with it and was going to change my password, but the "wizard" said I needed to save my password and offered the removable F Drive. However I do NOT have a removable device plugged into my computer and the wizard would NOT allow me to change the place to save it to another location. I am thinking something has installed itself and disguised itself as a a removable device. I just changed its name to "SUSPECT" on My computer. Another thing that is worrying me is I am unable to access certain websites that I used to be able to browse before. I cannot open www.burchperch.blogspot.com or open Calendars.com... which makes me wonder if this thing is disabling my browsing ability ALPHABETICALLY? HELP!

This definitely sounds strange and no keylogger I know of works like this.

Have you ran any AV scans on the computer?

I am not familiar with the term AV scan. I have used SuperAntiSpyware and Malware Bytes Anti-Malware Free Editions.

When I click on the Kaspersky link I get "404 Not Found nginx/0.8.27"
When I attempt to download eset, I get the blank white box with a small square in the upper left... it appears to be blocked.
