Hi Guys,

 

Have a real strange issue here...

 

I have an Asus X55A Laptop running windows 8 and my keyboard suddenly went crazy! It started adding random characters when typing or added spaces between each letter! 

 

I was able to try a restart using ALT+F4 but it would then not let me type anything into my password box. I wasnt able to cursor over the on-screen keyboard function.

 

I eventually got logged on by using a USB keyboard and Mouse which work fine. Still getting spaces between letters when I type.

 

Even stranger...when I click on ANY desktop item it will simply vanish! I used msconfig to get a safe mode with networking boot. When I click on an icon then a dialog box saying 'Item Not Found' and then something about file transfer - try again or cancel. If I select cancel the icon will vanish.

 

Even selecting items in folders will disappear. 

 

I am assuming this a virus and any help at all will be greatly, greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

ndonaldson2912

Tried a system restore from several points and all failed. Tried a system refresh, which successfully completed, however problem still exists. The laptop keyboard does not function, can only type using a usb keyboard. Once I select any desktop icons -  i find the message:

 

3 interrupted actions

 

This is no longer located in C:\Users\Public Desktop.
Verify the items location and try again.

 

Any action taken, whether, try again, skip or cancel, will all lead to the icon being deleted.....
