Hi,

 

Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) doesn't work for me, on win98SE.

 

Under Windows 98SE, the keyboard is blocked. I can't shutdown properly, when opening a notepad, it's automatically filled all the lines with the hyphen key. The same occurs if I make a search or wanted to run a program (Start, Run or Start, Find, Installing a program) the hypen keys is automatically activated so that I can't write anything neither even deleted it. If I open Explorer and click with the mouse on a folder, somethimes, this occurs also.

 

My laptop restarted automatically every time I plugged with the adapter into the wall.

Example : ---------------------

I'd like to be sure that I'm not infected, thanks in advance.

 

 

 

PS: CD drive and USB key are working on it. Mouse is ok.

Hi ramaflore,
 
Have you tried another keyboard?
 
 

My laptop restarted automatically every time I plugged with the adapter into the wall.

Do you mean for the power supply?

Hi Tofee,

 

Thanks for your assistance.

 

I don't have any others keyboard to try it.  This is about an old compaq Armada laptop.

 

Yes, every time I plugged into the wall.

Hi ramaflore,

 

Sorry about the delay.

 

Is there a reason why you are still using this laptop with windows 98?

I would say that the keyboard is likely broken or has a stuck key. This is not surprising considering the age of the laptop. Is the power supply the original one?

Hi ramaflore,

 

No malware in that log. You may want to try seeing if you can buy an external keyboard to plug in or seeing if there is a replacement online. Another solution which I recommend is buying or using a newer machine, and then installing VirtualBox on there so you can still run programs made for windows 98, but without the security risks which come with running windows 98.

Toffee,

 

I've just bought a USB Keyboard. Could we go on to be sure no malwares found it  with another program, please ?

Hi ramaflore,
 
Please download and run AVG 7 from here. After installing, right click the yellow/black/green/red AVG square in the bottom right of the desktop. (near the clock) Choose the launch AVG test center option. Here you will see large buttons, click check for updates (do this first), and then click scan computer. Let me know if it finds any threats.
