Hello guys,

Im new at this forum, so thx for future help. 2 days ago I experienced some strange things happening, suddenly while I was in online game my PC start typing on its own in global, some strange words with no sense, then it took me out of windows and start opening random files, opening CD rom and shuting down screen and PC, even internet speed was slower then usual. I had my antivirus Eset smart security and nothing happened. So I scanned whole PC and nothing was found. I downloaded other antivirus programs and some programs like malwarebytes, rkill, combofix still nothing. So I reinstalled Windows 7 and formated HD and again same problem, even in Starting screen on Windows boot.. Automatic typing of strange words. I turned off my internet but that doesnt help. I tried again that option, even burning new windows 7 copy from my friends PC and trying installing it. It looks like virus spread deep into my hard or possibly bios? Looks like I cant clean it after so many attempts. Last thing I did was to pull out motherboard batery for bios restart. Installed new CD with Windows 7 and everything was ok but then suddenly again things start to happen, Need help

Welcome to BC....


Unless you are halucinating...:)....I suggest you look to any peripheral devices attached or linked through WIFI as the source of the problem.

I suggest disconnecting ALL and resetting and re-securing the router to start. Stay away from the suspected game site until you have solved the

problem. Or stay away permanently if you really suspect that is where the problem started. Use a different keyboard and mouse.


Reformatting and re-installing Windows would remove 99.99% of any malware from the hdd.

Hello guys,
