Windows 7: Clipboard Automatically Pasting

That is odd,, but it is possible that it is something that is undetectable, or not generally malicious per se.
I would also unplug the mouse.

Personally,, at this point, I would back up all my data to an external drive.
Format any and all drives in the system. Install Windows from scratch, then see if the problem continues.

If it is still happening,, then you have a very strange hardware problem or, could be, maybe, just guessing, a BIOS virus? Who knows a this point. Maybe try flashing the BIOS.

After that, Call a Priest, exercise the f'er or burn it at the stake. Cause it ain't natural.

You know,, the other thing you could do, is open Word and let it go for a few days, maybe it's a message?

Just a shot in the dark - could it be the the on-screen keyboard is doing that? I would check whether it is running - it is called osk.exe and should show in Task Manager > Processes ( but you have to click "Show processes from all users").

Real good guess, may just work. Good going.

How about the keyboard itself? Have you tried replacing or swapping it with another one?

The onscreen keyboard is not running. I was hoping that was the problem. Yes, I have replaced both the keyboard and the mouse, but the problem still persists. I have found out that the characters being pasted are not stored in the clipboard. They are just random characters. Here's the most recent combination that keeps appearing: fa92b37d. It just keeps pasting the same string over and over. It never stops. It hits about every 30 - 60 seconds (usually).

It's like my computer has turret's syndrome and keeps blurting expletives without warning.

While in Safe Mode: Are these characters still being generated?

Is the keyboard wired or wireless? If wireless, have you got anything else that could be transmitting on the same frequency that could be causing interference?

It's a wired keyboard. I went ahead and flashed the BIOS, which didn't correct the problem. I reinstalled Windows 7 x64, and the problem is now gone. Who knows what caused it, I'm just glad it's gone. Now I'm busy reinstalling all of my software. Thank you to everyone who offered suggestions.

Hi, I am new to this forum. Hopefully someone can assist me.
I am having more or less the same problem, as above. If & when I open a WORD Doc or even the pgm, I get automatically strange little characters on my clipboard, however when I do select "clear all" the items are being removed from the clipboard. Can anybody assist me in this regard?

Kind Regards,
