windows 7 is in the habit of ghost typing the number 65 and various punctuation and then shutting itself off entirely... this happens what appears to be 100% randomly... while in chrome browser and this happens it opens up chrome help, when i was browsing the events in the event view and other management console windows open it opened up windows help, so it seems to open the various help pages, type 65 and various punctuation if a text box is available, then shuts off... i have tried to find any help from the various forums on this issue but so far no luck... several talk about computers shutting off while online but none of them mention the ghost typing and so far none of the solutions have helped, i ran several external virus scans and cleaned off a couple of major threats and the issue seemed to be cleared and the computer stayed on long enough to run several more scans, however it began shutting off again as soon as all the scans were finished and coming up all clear

Welcome,

Sorry to hear of the problem. I'd strongly recommend that you visit the forum where you can get some help with your infection.

Don't try any more do it yourself fixes as you can make the problem worse

im not messing with anything do it yourself yet, just scans and a microsoft hotfix... i was browsing the event logs looking for information as to what might be causing the shutting down but it closed while i was browsing... im not just an uneducated user, i have not been able to find any topics with similar issues, one or the other but not the same, im not even sure it is an infection since all the scans now are coming up clean... are there any other possibilities? could this be a hardware issue or is it just a bot buried THAT deep into the system?... it only seems to happen while the computer is connected to the web, could it be a bot with remote access keeping monitor?

Hi,

My recommendation is still to go to the forum linked above and get trained assistance. The clean scans could indicate that it is hardware related but as you have mentioned it could also be something else.

I would go to Am I infected? first. You don't need logs, just repost what's happening and let others ask questions.

 

EDIT: Never mind :lmao:
