My Computer Randomly Types 'q' or 'qqqqqqqqqqq'

Hello im CrazyKilla

For about a month now, my computer at random times started to type 'q' on its own or 'qqqqqqqqqq', and before you say it, No, it's not the keyboard, when the keyboard is unplugged or the drivers aren't even installed, still types Q, this might be a virus because it happens mostly when im away, and then come back and sit down, as soon as i put a finger on my mouse, it starts typing, also if i haven't got a chat box opened then it will make the windows sound 'Ding', like if there's an error. I have disabled the sound, but the q is still annoying, it sometimes happens while im typing too.
Help Please!

What antivirus do you use?

Make scans with the following:

Quote:
-Kaspersky TDSSKiller-ESET online scannerIn addition, you may run the malicious software removal tool and WDO:Microsoft Security Essentials.
Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.

Kaspersky TDSSKiller Didn't find anything.

ESET Free online virus scanner wouldn't scan/download

In Malicious Software Removal Tool i got:
"1. Open the Start Menu, and type mrt.exe in the search line and press enter.
NOTE: This file is located at C:\Windows\System32\mrt.exe."
My Pc doesn't have this application

Windows Defender wants a USB/CD which i do not have

MSE and Malwarebytes?

The fact that you can't d/l ESET is a little troubling as some viruses prevent you from accessing AV sites.

Try running RKill & then run the programs koolkat77 has listed.

RKill Download

Quote:
RKill is a program that was developed at BleepingComputer.com that attempts to terminate known malware processes so that your normal security software can then run and clean your computer of infections. When RKill runs it will kill malware processes and then removes incorrect executable associations and fixes policies that stop us from using certain tools. When finished it will display a log file that shows the processes that were terminated while the program was running.

As RKill only terminates a program's running process, and does not delete any files, after running it you should not reboot your computer as any malware processes that are configured to start automatically will just be started again. Instead, after running RKill you should immediately scan your computer using some sort of anti-malware or anti-virus program so that the infections can be properly removed.

Below are a list of RKill download links using different filenames. We offer RKill under different filenames because some malware will not allow processes to run unless they have a certain filename. Therefore when attempting to run RKill, if a malware terminates it please try a different filename offered below.
