    I have been puzzled on this one, my computer for the past few months has had a mind of it's own. It first started typing full and half sentences about two months ago, at first I thought it was a virus and took the easy way out and reformatted. I have two hard drives in this machine and I have formatted them both twice at least, loaded both xp home and ubuntu on them and still seem to get the mystery typing. I have even taken memory out , switched the order and changed out my g15 for a normal keyboard. I have yet to find a solution, somehow it keeps typing on its own, deleting characters , using the arrow keys to go back and forward on websites and pressing enter on it's own. I have used spybot, windows defender, and adware tagged up with norton 10.2 corporate edition. I have used two different online scanners and still no luck, does anyone know what else it could be? I don't have office or voice recognition nor do i have a microphone plugged in so we can safely rule that out.

    Cute problem .....is this computer in a network? If it is, you may have a program installed that lets your IT manager view what you are doing ....

    Second question ....if not on a network ...do you use a wireless mouse and is there another wireless mouse near you? Possible that both are on the same channel.

    Lol no, its a home network, me being probably the only person who would know any of that. Like I said it'll happen right after a reformat, so it isn't anything that is installed. There is a few wireless mice in the house but I don't see how that would type on my screen.

    Keyboard also? ...We did have a case where this happened ....have you file shared with the other computers ....is anyone on those units when it happens? Got Kids?:) Is your router secure? Do you have a firewall?

    Like I said its a g15, so its wired usb, I don't think it's anything to do with the file sharing since it's happened on mutiple OS systems, we have about 3 pcs on the network on one time, but its just this one pc acting up.
