I use a wireless Logitech keyboard, Model K800 and yesterday it started typing the characters / and * randomly. I tried the following tests to determine the problem:
1.) I turned off my keyboard and disconnected the USB dongle, but it was a no go.
2.) I ran a Mal-Ware Bytes scan and Windows Defender scan in Safe Mode, but nothing showed up. Also, ran a CCleaner sweep to clean things up. Even after all this, the problem persisted.
3.) Uninstalled the keyboard from the Device Manager, but that did not work either.
4.) Tried cleaning my keyboard, but the keys were not stuck.
5.) I tried to disable the sticky key option and other keyboard options, but problem still persisted.
When I boot my computer up, I hear sounds like keys are being pressed.
However, when I am in Safe Mode, the problem stops. Could it be a software problem? Does this problem sound like a Virus or Trojan?
Sorry, forgot to mention, I am running Windows 8.1 and my computer is about 6-7 years old. Don't know if this is relevant, but thought I would put that in there.
