Hey there
I'm not sure if it is responsible, but certain keys on my keyboard have all of a sudden stopped working, around the same sort of time as I was hit by the Smitfraud Trojan virus. I'm able to use the majority of them but, every now and again I'll find a random key that refuses to work. It depresses but nothing is outputted. The main victims appear to be the 1 - 4, 7 - 0 keys - not on numeric keypad however - which obviously affects the shift symbols above them too.
It's starting to get really frustrating now and I cannot work out what is causing it. I have managed to free my computer of the hideous virus and seem to have cleared it all up, apart from this problem. It also cannot be a fault of the keyboard as I have only had it 2 or 3 months - it is a BNI illuminated compact keyboard.

If anyone could help or knows of similar circumstances I would be extremely grateful for some assistance.
