I have windows xp and for the last couple of weeks my start menu pops up by itself, the search function pops up by itself sometimes upto 47 times in a row and when i go to type in words whether its on the net or not i get random letters that type in for me. I have AVG 7.5 and have run numerous scans and nothing shows up. I have also run panda and nothing shows. I have done system restores and it will not fix the problem. I dont know what i have, ive even thought maybe my keyboard is acting up. Any help is much welcome. Thank you.

If you have a wireless keyboard, low batteries can result in weak, mixed or no signals that can affect its functionality so start by replacing them. If that does not help, confirm that the keyboard works on another machine. It is possible the keyboard could be defective. Another thing to try is to use a different keyboard on your machine or a PS2 adapter?
