asteriks filling password field

By bldsm ·
Hi everyone

I have Win 7 Home Prem SP1 and all of a sudden when anyone in the family goes to log into their profiles using their passwords the password field fills with asteriks before they touch the keyboard. These have to be removed before the actual password is entered.

I have run Avast, Malware bytes and Spybot S & D and removed some annoyances but nothing big and the problem continues.

What can I do to find what's causing this and kill it?

Thanks
Bruce

no, its like there is a bug in the machine that is holding down a key on the keyboard and its being entered continuously, but the keyboard is not being touched.

So did you check for a stuck key on the Keyboard? NT
