Toshiba laptop "sticky keys" message pops up,caps comes on at will,mouse selects multiple things


Basically what i said in the description

After having the computer on for about 1/2 hour ,when you type, it decides to type in caps at ITS will.

Also there is an error for selecting "sticky keys"

When you drag mouse on desktop it selects multiple things,more than what you select.

After some googling,i get about 80% answers for hardware/keyboard problem,20% for a hijacked script


Should i start with malwarebytes/hijack this log in another thread?


Please and thank you folks..I am so greatful to have this place and you people.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Your problem may not be related to malware or a virus or Trojan.

You can scan with MalwareBytes just to be sure of this, it certainly wouldn't hurt.

I do believe you may have a keyboard related problem, since the errors are all related to the mouse pad and keyboard keys.

Can you please post the model number of the laptop?

Bruce.

I looked at your MalwareBytes log and seen this.

Registry Keys Infected:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{1d4db7d2-6ec9-47a3-bd87-1e41684e07bb} (Adware.MyWebSearch) -> No action taken.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Win Antivir 2008 (Rogue.WinAntiVirus) -> No action taken.

Both say no action taken, did you have both of those infections removed?

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic344981.html 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 MRT Team member, nor should you 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

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

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
