My computer seems to have a mind of it's own RRS feed

  • My computer is opening web pages that I have visited even though I am not working on line (although ( do have an active DSL line) and sometimes my keyboard types letters that are not the  ones my fingers happen to be touching at the time.  Could I have a virus of some sort on this PC?

  • It sounds a little bit like a trojan or keylogger is possibly running in the background.  Have you tried running a virus or antimalware scan?
