today some strange typing began in note pad. i had been using notepad, then saved and closed program. Then it opened back up on its own and typing appeared. the typing was in phrases or partial phrases with no punctuation. when I clicked the mouse on other prgrams the typing stopped. when I clicked back on notepad typing resumed. i disconnected from the internet, physically unplugged my router and the typing continued. Any Ideas out there

Do you have a microphone attached to your system? Could speech recognition have been turned on?

1.dont understand how a new notepad would fix problem. 2.my laptop has built in microphone, but nobody was speaking and it was typing.

here is some of the text...
...alot of years died all odds all know all around and michael's raiders were one or two when a game in sin rule of law is no one is how will this is going down...

this was not on the tv and there was nobody talking. no other programs were running and internet was turned off by unplugging satelite and router. I live in the country, 700 feet from the road and nearest neighbor is about 600 feet, but regardless there was no wireless networks to available connect to.

I haven't got a clue as to what's going on with your machine, but if it was mine, I'd either reformat or do a repair install! :huh:

If voice recognition is on as usasma suggests, you could install a new notepad, which isn't afflicted with the problems of voice recognition that's built into Vista.
By the looks of what you're seeing in notepad currently, you either have a Virus, or Voice Recognition turned on and a VERY sensitive microphone.

If voice recognition isn't trained, it'll make up words as it hears things.
The definitive test is easy, just turn off the microphone in the sound panel and see if the mystery typist goes away.
