Windows 7: Supected virus or malware effecting keyboard usage

26 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

Yes. This has happened with me too. The only solution was to replace the keyboard and it did my job. Prolonged usage can damage the keys and for a gamer, it is rather usual. I guess you could buy a new and good one cheap from online stores. Usually, your keyboard shouldn't be behaving erratic due to some virus. When it does act erratically, it might just be a hardware issue. Are all your hardware drivers up to date? If not, try to update them and see what happens. If the keyboard still behaves like that, it might be the time for a new keyboard.

So i switched out the keyboards, it worked for a while then it began to act up again, preventing me from typing once again or using any of the keys. I've tried TDSSkiller and that didn't show anything.

where as aswMBR seems to crash after some time. Again if its a Bios virus what do I do?

It's Avast VM Monitor. On the download page for aswMBR there's this note that probably also explains the crash:

The current version of aswMBR uses "Virtualization Technology" to improve detection of stealth malware. Please note that to use this feature your machine & CPU must support hardware virtualization.

If it's a BIOS virus you should try to replace the BIOS software. Here's some information:
