Have you recently spilled any liquid on the keyboard?
I remember dropping a small bit of fizzy drink on my keyboard and it went mental. Stayed like it for a good few hours too.

If not, try removing the key and making sure it's not stuck down or anything. It would be very unusual for your PC to be constantly keypressing 8 through just software / virus.

As soon as place the cursor to begin typing anywhere the number eight just start typing continuously if I don't hold down the backspace key while typing. I just sprayed my keyboard with Duster and I don't recall spilling anything on the keyboard. I wish I could solve this problem because it's truly irritating. But thanks anyway.

What is duster?

Is it a liquid spray or what?

Was the computer switched on, when you sprayed Duster?

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
