I have been having start-up issues for the past couple of weeks with no resolve. When starting up, there are numerous loud beeps and when I go to log in the field for the password autofills on its own. I backspace and attempt to retype the password and then the utility manager and narrator pop up. At this point, I usually shut down or restart because I cannot stop the autofilling and popping up of the utility manager and narrator. When log-in is successful after numerous reboots and attempt to work in excel or on the web, the excel fields autofill on their own, and the search fields on Google autofill on their own. I have run Ad-Aware, SpyBot, and Kaspersky virus scan numerous times with no infections, just the usual tracking cookies. I also ran the free on-line Trend Micro Housecall scan with no infections found. I have attempted to run these programs in safe mode but cannot log on in safe mode or in safe mode with networking. When attempting to log on in safe mode, the computer freezes up and when attempting to log on in safe mode with networking, the screen goes black. I have a Dell Latitude D520 laptop with intel Core2 Duo processor. I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.
