Hi,

 

My sister's computer (her kid's computer) has a problem, a continuous string of text keeps being typed whenever there is a text field or input; this happens throughout the system. The text isn't random it just keeps typing "lololol" even with the keyboard disconnected. So I'm guesssing it a script thats running.

 

I havn't taken alook at the computer yet, but I'm 100% there is something odd going on. I plan to boot into safe mode and just scan the computer. However I havn't came across this problem before and not much information regarding this on Google (I'm not sure what the correct term for this type of problem is).

 

Is there any other precautions or measures I should take to remove this? My sister was thinking of just wiping the entire system.

 

-Windows 8.1

 

Thanks for any replies.

Welcome to BC !

 

It does sound like a prank script....couldn't verify by searching. You could try using System Restore to a date prior to having that problem.
