Windows 7: Windows types qqqq letters at random times

Windows types qqqq letters at random times

Hi.
this started happening a few weeks ago, my PC for some reason starts typing qqqqqqqq on its own.
I checked and NO the letter is not stuck , it is making it very hard to chat or do anything that requires writing. It starts randomly and ends randomly ( but doesnt usually last more that 1-2 minutes )
before this QQQQQ thing my PC would randomly start to generate the "error" sound but i fixed that and it started writing qq....
can you please help ? thank you

I think your keyboard is telling you to quit crying! QQ . For those of you that online game, you will definitely get this reference.

Please note this isnt meant to be an insult

Nobodys crying... I think i fixed it anyway. I think it was a virus. After a thorough google search, found someone saying that. So i did a virus scan n found a few trojans. Got rid of em and its fine now.

Download, install, update and run a full scan with Malwarebytes followed by SUPERAntiSpyware.com - Downloads. In its Preferences turn off all updating and starting with Windows in SAS and decline Trials for both so they are only scanners.

Be sure to run SFC /SCANNOW Command to see if the infection affected any System files.

LOL to "a few trojans"... Almost like saying "Oh the doc found just a few tumors. Nothing major!"
