I have been using a USB keyboard for ages (one of the kind that is floppy and rolls out).  A while back, the space key and various keys started either not functioning or doing the wrong the thing (I wish I could remember what they were, but I didn't document).


I went out and bought a new, identical keyboard, and for some reason got the exact same results as soon as it was plugged in.  Strangely enough, when plugged in to a different computer that should be entirely malware free, same results.


Right now I'm using a different brand of keyboard, and it seems to be working just fine.  Does this sound like malware, or just being incredibly unlucky?


Malwarebytes and McAffee have shown nothing.


Thanks for any and all assistance.


I'm running Windows 8.1 (upgrade version).

I also ran the ESET scanner and found nothing.
