Specs: Windows XP Pro OEM
Okay, I'm not sure how to explain this, but I'll try. quickly touch on the various problems and then elaborate on a couple of main issues.
There is a curved green arrow pointing upward that invades the top left corner of my screen all the time and first types............ which eventually changes to actual letters & words. It appears to be someone typing conversation with all different random subjects and then if I need to type something, it takes over anywhere I click to type, and I have to hold down the backspace button until it erases all they typed, and then immediately start punching letters before it does and if I take a second in between it takes over again. The only way that I have found to stop it is to restart my computer, and sometimes that only works for a minute or two, & then it starts up again.I can't take another second of fighting this green arrow freak typist from hell for the floor.......Oh my God,I just had to write 1/2 of this over, because of this #$%&*$!!! AAHHHG!!! I am now officially snapping, please help me out of this fu$%!#& maddening nightmare. It has been going on for around 6 months or so, & I am ready to rip my hair out. This has become like a most heinous form of mental torture for me, it is so totally beyond frustrating. If anyone thinks that they might be able to help, & if it would help you to see it, you can text me @ I can send a video msg from my phone to you so you can see it. Thank you for your time!

First try the Exorcist's Method - replace the defective keyboard.

This is a stand-alone PC - not on a shared network of sorts?

And you do have a current and active virus-scanner in operation?

And hopefully you something like Windows Defender installed/running?

And have have you tried running an on-line scan too; Trend.com - housecall - a freebie?

Disable system-restore "befroe" running any scans of any type; and when running a local utilty scan - disconnect the internet.

Also if possible scan in safe-mode when using both local utilities and on-line.

And also do you have a Linux on DVD variant; e.g. knopppix or Ubuntu?

Exorcist's approach - Now that is radical approach.. never bin aware that a faulty keyboard could/would do all that...? But who knows - only "the Shadow" knows...
