I play an unofficial online game and someone on it is making my computer type back to me things that i've said on the game. it only happened while i was in the game originally. i tried unpluggin my keyboard one time and it stopped. but today it happened while i was in a different game altogether. it seems as if what i said was recorded somehow and they are forcing my keyboard to send the characters to me. if im on my desktop things start going haywire from the key commands and stuff like that. if i open notepad it shows the typed messages. please assist.

From what you say, your computer has been hacked (with at least) a key-logger installed.


I suggest:

1. Googgle "Trusteer Rapport",

download the free program,

install it and read instructions how to protect your keyboard entries when you are connected on the internet.


2. Uninstall  the game(s)

3. Ensure that your anti-virus program is up to date, and run full computer scan.

4. On the homepage of BleepingComputer, I found the recommendation for  

    MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware Pro

5. I believe a free version of Anti-Malware Pro is available. Use this if at all possible

    DO NOT do any financial transactions over your PC,

   before you know that the key-logger has been killed-off.

6.Come back to this forum for help from people who are better equipped than I to help you.
