I have Windows 7 Ultimate. Right now, I've got Norton Antivirus running, but I worry it might not catch the problem. I want to manually find this problem and remove it.
This is the fourth time in a row my keyboard has gone on the fritz almost immediately after purchasing it or getting it replaced via store warranty. I'm starting to wonder if the problem isn't my keyboard, but rather, a virus.
For example, the past three times I had this problem this summer, it was certains buttons not working anymore. Random buttons just didn't do anything. I'm having that problem now (right now, it's the "2" key, although the 2 key over on the keypad on the right side still works). However, I'm also having a different problem.
Every time I press the "b" key, it pulls up Windows Media Player and my desktop switches to that. I have to close it down EVERY SINGLE TIME I press that key!
Second, the "ctrl" buttons do something different, and it's different for each application I'm using. For Firefox, pressing the "ctrl" keys will cycle through multiple tabs if there are any multiple tabs to cycle through (although if I don't have any extra tabs, holding down the ctrl key while I'm clicking on a link does allow me to launch a new tab; so at least that function hasn't been taken out).
Does this sound like the MO of a virus you recognize? If so, how do I find this virus manually and remove it?
