+ 0 Votes If you ctrservices Updated - 6 years ago have access to another PC which is fully updated with AV and anti-spyware apps you could install it as the slave drive and scan the drive. BUT, in this case I would advise you to install it into the above PC, copy important data to its drive, then reinstall the bad drive in the old PC and repartition/reformat/reinstall the OS from the original PC setup CD(s). This often saves time in the long run and you can then be certain that the offending malware has truly been eradicated from the hard drive. + 0 Votes Consistently sticky keys d.s.williams 6 years ago Well, this is embarrasing! It seems that this really was just a faulty keyboard, although I'm totally baffled as to why the number of letters "entered" in the password dialog was so consistent and even evenly distrubuted around the keyboard (rising from 0 to 6 as you got closer to the middle of the keyboard). In any case, our hunch seems to have been right and now that a new keyboard is fitted everything is working fine! No wonder I was drawing a blank on finding a description of any virus, worm or trojan that had the effects I was experiencing! I shall call this "virus" StickyKeys2007!
