While typing documents Microsoft Office somebody keeps typing a single letter to destroy what I have typed.  Example: MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM 

 

 

Even when I just did that it seemed to get stuck and wouldn't stop until I kept hitting the space bar.

 

One day I noticed on startup that I got a message that read: Intel - "Active Management Technology Enabled.  To enable or disable Intl AMT, contact your authorized system Administrator.  Intel SA 00075 Detection Management Tool."

 

A few days later my computer said: "Desktop Restored" -- and it looked slightly different so I logged off and back on again and it returned normal.  It had also said: "You have logged on as another computer..." 

 

Another day a message asked me to complete my group networking by creating a password for my group, but I never requested a networking group.

 

I did eliminate group networking, and refused to make a password.  I also downloaded Crypto Prevent, Key Scrambler, and Bitdefender instead of Avast.  I also have free versions of Super Anti-spyware, and Malwarebytes.  I locked my desktop and have encrypted some of my files with passwords.  Since downloading Bitdefender I haven't noticed any interruptions with single letter shown above in my example, but when it was happening, it also happened when commenting on Yahoo news and showed up everywhere I would normally type.  I had to shut down my computer and restart to stop it.  Any suggestions as to what this might be?

If this is a desktop - try a different keyboard

if this is a laptop - carefully clean the keyboard
