I have a very strange problem with my laptop.
It types by itself. What I mean by this is, I can be typing a sentence,
For example, "Hello, How are you". And it will come out like this "Hello, phow arer youuuuuu"
Letters are appearing by themselves, And it is only letters i previously typed.
The worst case so far is in instant messaging or facebook chat, when i type something,
Send the message, it starts spamming my chat box with one letter repeated. And comes up like "oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo"
Until i press the back-space button
Even writing this thread, i am being spammed by empty spaces coming up themselves without me pressing the space bar and alot of letters coming up without me even typing them.
It is VERY irritating as you might understand from the description and i would love if someone could help me with the problem.
Thank you,
Regards
Colin

Hello Ritchie999

Welcome to G2Go. :D
=====================
Have you tried another keyboard sounds like that is what the issue is.
Let me know if that does not fix the issue.

Well sounds like a hardware issue to me but I will look into your logs to rule out malware I have never seen it not be a keyboard issue.
  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on OTL to run it.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Under the Standard Registry box change it to All.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.
====================
Download This file. Note its name and save it to your root folder, such as C:\.

  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with this file.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
  • Double-click on the downloaded file to start the program. (If running Vista, right click on it and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Allow the driver to load if asked.
  • You may be prompted to scan immediately if it detects rootkit activity.
  • If you are prompted to scan your system click "Yes" to begin the scan.
  • If not prompted, click the "Rootkit/Malware" tab.
  • On the right-side, all items to be scanned should be checked by default except for "Show All". Leave that box unchecked.
  • Select all drives that are connected to your system to be scanned.
  • Click the Scan button to begin. (Please be patient as it can take some time to complete)
  • When the scan is finished, click Save to save the scan results to your Desktop.
  • Save the file as Results.log and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
  • Exit the program and re-enable all active protection when done.
