Hello.. I need some serious help with a problem thats been buggering me for a while..
When I press the letter "y" in my laptop's keyboard... nothing comes up on the screen.. Then when I restart the computer, and open an program where you can type, a whole bunch of y's appear. sometimes filling over a page of nothing but y's... something like this:

yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy now multipl this by 30.

to use the y rigyht now i am using cut/paste... the y gets displayed sometimes randomly..example: i am typing a website address in internet and a bunch of y's appear...

this is really annoying... i've run my symantec antivirus, i have spware doctor full version, i recently downloaded security task manager, tried all windows updates including the malicious removing tool from microsoft.com and nothing happens..

the problem is not onl when i am writing but also anytime that im using the computer because it makes the repeated noise as if someone is pressing a key repeatedly and leaving it pressed..

with the securit task manager i got a temporar solution to the problem..which was quarantine a file which has a 100 rating called KeyHook.dll located in a folder SONy UTILITIES... i restarted the computer and the y worked properly then.. out of the blue,, the problem began again..i've tried to turn off restore and do the same thing but now there is nothing to prevent the problem.

the only bad program i had in my computer was messenger plus (didnt install the bundle adware programs) and i deleted it... and have updated my msn messenger.

someone help me please.. thank u

Perhaps the key on your keyboard is stuck?

No, it is the Keyhook.dll

I would NOT delete that at the moment.

It is a dynamic linking library (dll) file that is designed to hook typed keystrokes. It COULD be bad, as some programs use it wrong, but it could also be legitimate.
