I posted an app back in a post keycastow, run that and open Browser, see if it will register anything.

Did you try IE by the way?

You can download a Linux Distro (they are free) and then run it from CD/DVD/USB.

You don't have to install it (most Linux Distros will run from CD/DVD/USB).

I'd suggest Linux Mint MATE.

1. Booted in safe mode of existing windows profile - didn't see the issue till I connected to Internet via browsers (Firefox and Chrome). Rescanned via NPE - no risks. Scanned via Norton 360 - nothing found.

2. Booted in safe mode of new windows profile - didn't see the issue till I connected to Internet via browsers (Firefox and Chrome). Rescanned via NPE - no risks. Scanned via Norton 360 - 2 browser cookies, resolved. Issue is back.

--//--
Q2. Would you suggest - any online keyboard diagnostics tools (without download)?

Q3. I'll copy all my data in an external USB hard drive in safe mode with network - do you think I maybe copying the corrupt source (if it's an undetected malware)? Usually, I go to C drive > Users > copy the desktop, docs, pics & other folders

Q1 Repeat. Any other suggestions - other than formatting?

re: Q2: It would seem that your local guy answered the question about the keyboard and/or keyboard controller being bad. (Running Linux Mint from a DVD would have answered that question for you.)

re: Q3: possibly... but you should backup your data anyway.

re: Q1: you might want to read thru this thread and comment on each suggestion. e.g. I do not see where you addressed my post #5 (video drivers) or my post #6 (the clean boot part).

Did you even try using the program I linked? It is a portable app (no installation required).
All you had to do was start it and trigger the problem.

I tried KeyCastOW - all keys are showing respective symbols excepting "Shift" and Dell's "Function" buttons.
Is there something specific you want me to do with KeyCastOW? Can't see the screens that the blog shows. Would appreciate some detailed instructions.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Noticed something - I'm in Safemode with networking and backing up profiles... Almost two hours without incident but the moment I connect to Internet the same dance starts. This makes me think there is a malware involved - @Praveen and Norton Support Team, can you help?

Also, can't enable "Windows Security Center Services" - it's disabled.
