About a week ago my computer started typing randomly the letter "n".
Right now, it is doing it and I have to use the space bar to stop it to type.

Also, on startup there's a loud beeping noise that comes from the computer.
Then it goes into boot manager for you to choose an operating system. (Vista)
If you dont choose and press "esc" it goes to windows password normally.
However, when you try to type in your password it starts randomlly typing.

When you enter your password it keeps on typing on your desktop or online until it decides to stop.
It hinders you and paralyzes you from doing anything.

Right now I feel sad and terrible. I dont know what to do.

A month before this, someone stole my Yahoo account and emailed my friends asking for money.
Downloaded HijackThis and there are questionable things on the log.
But, I dont know what I'm doing, so I came here to seek your professional advice.

Can you please help me?

From your description, this sounds more like keyboard issues. It may need cleaning for example. Have you tried plugging in a different keyboard to see if you experience the same issues? I'm assuming you have a desktop computer.

Hello Orange Blossom,

I followed your advice and cleaned my keyboard.

Then, I deleted questionable items from hijackthis and mwb.

Further, I updated the keyboard drivers and now so far so good!

But, if my problem returns, I'll let you know because you guys are the best!

Thanks for all of your help Orange Blossom.
