This morning I woke up and started up my computer to check email, weather, etc. It took a little longer than usual to load, but I didn't think anything of it. When I loaded up Google Chrome, I tried to type something into the search bar, but no letters came up, rather my keystrokes were bringing up file drop down menus. Also, when I opened a new tab and went to click on one of my frequently viewed pages, the page would not load, rather the browser would prompt me to download the link (the little popup bar that shows up at the bottom of the page). I didn't download anything. To try and fix this I restarted my computer (nope), swapped out my USB keyboard for another one (nope), ran a virus scan with AVG (only thing that popped up was one thing of malware--mstsc.exe is what the history log said. Virus scan was clean, malware was quarantined and deleted), and then I resorted to my college "fix-all" solution: the system restore. It didn't work. Keyboard is still doing the same stuff. It was working fine last night when I put it into sleep mode. We did lose power in the middle of the night and the computer turned off completely, but I didn't think that would have anything to do with the malfunctioning of my keyboard. Any ideas or suggestions?
