the b,n alphabet is typed automatically endlessly & alpha keys k,n,b,m dont appear when typed

I have checked the keys thoroughly for spillage or damage but none what so ever and the alphabets appear when the aplhabet key is physically removed

Am I infected?

If the keyboard is typing incorrect characters, the settings may have been changed.
To change it, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options.
Click the Languages tab, then the Details button.
Change the default input language to US English and make sure the keyboard is set the same.
Then click OK/Apply.

If you have a wireless keyboard, low batteries can result in weak or mixed signals that can cause the wrong characters to appear on-screen, so start by replacing them. You might also try moving the keyboard closer to the wireless receiver and positioning the receiver farther from other wireless transmitters (such as wireless phones or network adapters) or metal objects that might scramble the signal. In addition, don't sit your wireless keyboard directly on a metal desk surface. If none of the above helps, 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?

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/234919/hijackthis-log-please-help-diagnose/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message to quietman7 or myself indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:

Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
