My laptop is behaving erratically. It runs on XP Home (32 bit, Service Pack 3). In MS Word and while surfing (all browsers: FF 3, Opera, Chrome...) the character 's' randomly appears in erratic bursts (sometimes single, sometimes multiple) - while I'm typing (any character, or even the space bar and backspace) or even when idle.
The problem can be seen in MS Word, even when typing in Safe Mode.
I ran AVG Free (latest), Malwarebytes Free, Kaspersky TDKK Killer, Sophos Rootkit, Wise Registry Free and CCleaner - in Safe and Normal mode (Sophos only in Normal, because doesn't run in Safe - get an Initial Error).But no error/danger/bugs etc.
Also tried System Restores - as far back as a week, even though I only noticed this problem over the past day. Yet, no difference.
I'm attaching the Hijack This logs - both, in Safe and Normal. You can see that evil `s' even in the file name. I'm typing this request on a friend's machine - else you'd be hisssssssing as you read this.
PLEASE help!!!! Many thanks in advance.
