    How to purge a Keyboard Virus


    Hello all,


    My keyboard has been acting up for some time now 99% sure because of a virus at this point since my keyboard was recently replaced. I've taken a number of security steps to purge it, but all have failed. It's buried deep.


    While typing in both Microsoft Word and in a web browser, everything will be in CAPS and the numeric keyboard is disabled which often makes it difficult to sign into my computer.


    Furthermore, it is often the case when I try to compose an email or click on something in a web browser that it will open a new window.


    I've tried fiddling with MSconfig and taking other measures, but no luck. I have an ASUS operating on Windows 10.


    If anyone has experience with this or can help, please reach out. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Mouse and keyboard virus question

    Hi,

    Well, this is perhaps a little basic. I don't know a lot about IT. I may purchase a second-hand PS/2 mouse and keyboard. I have heard that USB mouses (mice?) and keyboards can carry a virus and infect your computer:

    infection - Can my mouse have virus and infect other machines? - Information Security Stack Exchange

    but is this true for PS/2 mouses and keyboards as well?

    Thanks.

    PS: I know it says I have a Win 7 system, but I am on the Win 10 forum because I am in the process of upgrading to Win 10, and have had trouble and it was suggested I remove my USB mouse and keyboard and use PS/2 instead, for the upgrade process.

  3. Keyboard problem in Windows 10

    Hi David,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to check if the issue persists when you connect another keyboard to your system.

    If the issue is with the keyboard, then suggest you to update the keyboard drivers by following the steps below.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device Manager
      from the list.

    • Expand ‘Keyboard’ from the list.

    • Right click on the driver and select ‘update driver software’ and follow the prompts.

    Hope the information is helpful.
