I have a computer that is running Windows XP Home edition, it is in the lobby of the hotel where I work at. As of recently, I've noticed that it seems like the tab key is going crazy, like someone is holding it down. It scrolls through the links on the page rapidly, just keeps whipping through them, having the page go up and down as it goes from top to bottom. At first I thought it was just a stuck key but when I logged into the admin account, it didn't do this, just on the guest account. I plan on switching out the keyboards anyway, but could there be something else going on as well? I have run MBAM and it has come up clean. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!!

How are things now, any changes?

It sounds like something in guest account. You may be better served in the xp forum either fixing the problem in the account or creating a "new" guest account.

If you suspect malware I will be happy to offer some apps to see what we can find.
