The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A105-S1712 running Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit, this is concerning the built-in keyboard. I am working on it for a friend because the computer was experiencing assumed adware (Internet Explorers popping up, random letters being punched in, redirected to homepage & severe slowdown) so I ran my usual scans and found 61 infected files. Deleted those, did one more scan, found 3 viruses. Deleted those, one more scan.. 3 viruses.
Basically the computer needed a wipe because of all the unnecessary programs were leaching memory and bogging down the entire system. So I re-installed Vista and assumed everything would be a-okay. Nope (but the computer runs about a thousand times better now). Internet Explorers kept popping up, random letters, redirect to homepage.. So I did some searching and found the problem with the IE's popping up, I pried up the Home key and cleaned it, haven't had a problem since with that at least.
The only two problems that remain are: 70% of the time when you're typing something, instead it'll type "uit" in a millisecond (even sometimes turning on Caps Lock to do so) & being redirected to homepage while browsing. These typically happen in unison with one another. Is there anything I can do short of sending the computer in to have the keyboard fixed?
