I have an ongoing problem with my desktop computer. Every few minutes a static type noise comes on and takes over the keyboard. It actually will delete the last thing typed or add about a hundred of the last character. Sometimes it makes the keyboard not work for a minute or so. It is extremely annoying and no amount of virus scans seem to get rid of it. It actually disappeared a few weeks ago for about a day after a virus scan but then reappeared the next day which makes me think it is some type of annoying virus that just is not being detected most of the time by the scans.

Any suggestions? I've tried new keyboards, speakers, etc... and nothing works.

Is your keyboard a USB? If it is, have you tried another USB port?

If you have connected in the front, try a USB port on the back of the tower. If it's in the back, plug it into the front.

Hi

Thank you for the suggestion. I did try it that and the noise is still there. I have even went through a few different types of keyboards and the noise still happens. I have noticed that even with the speakers off, you can hear the noise but not amplified like it is when the speakers are on. I don't know if that helps narrow down what the issue is.

What kind of softwares have you tried using and removing this virus? Have you tried checking the problem in safemode if it's still acting the same behavior?

In safe made, I tried Malaware bytes and Spybot. Not in safe mode, I've also tried Combofix, McAfee Virus Scan, rkill. After using Combofix, the sound disappeared for a day but then returned.

Do you have any software installed for your keyboard? If you do have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the software?
