Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Scan your computer with this:
What is Windows Defender Offline?

You may have a bad keyboard.

Agree with Layback Bear - the key is faulty. This has been discussed before as others have had the same problem.

I think no sir, because this notebook it's never drop, drop by water, food or something else..

and if i watch this virus show up, usually 10-30 second after first tabbing, the tabbing stop on ti's own, and 10-30 second after stop, back to "shuffling again"...

And if the virus tabbing is out, I usually stop him with typing letter or typing on keyboard(not work with touchpad, because it's not working when the virus come out)

Thanks sir for the attention... ^^

Does the problem happen when you type letters near the tab key? Please open MS Word and test that for me. Press the keys harder that normal to make the keyboard bend.

I don't think that this is caused by a virus because I do not see any websites that describe such a virus.

This morning that virus not show up, my notebook booting normally, until now.

I tested on ms. word the tab is work normally, i press deeper still normaly, i try press letter "Q", "a", "~", "1", and "Capslock" still normal, the "tab key" not follow if i press that letter.

I forgot to tell, if the virus show up, usually the tab key it's locked, i can't use tab key although i press harder that button, and usually the tab virus start on when booting bios(before log on windows), sometimes booting windows normal but in the middle when i browsing or typing the tab come out again..
So randomly and unpredictable...

I think it's different sir, sometimes the tab key its locked when the tabbing come out, sometimes when not come out the tab key it's work normally..

And come out randomly and unpredictable, its very very weird . . .

It could be a virus. Their are some going around that are set to effect different keys.
Did you complete downloading and running Defender off line as UsernameIssue suggested in post #2?
