Nasty? Sounds like worm/trojan to me. Be aware it takes a specialized scanner to clean. Normal AV won't do.

Could be a virus but it might just be the mouse causing jump arounds. Have you got another you can try?

If a virus is suspected it would be worth installing MalwareBytes freebie from here:

It often finds and fixes viruses that AV's miss. Even if it is not powerful enough to fix a virus it might at least show that there is one and help prove the point.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If it is a laptop, you may be touching the pad while typing...happens on lots of lappies especially when replying to e-mails etc. As far as the space bar goes...not too sure on that...maybe try a different usb keyboard....
Funny thing is, people don't let us know what they are using....it does make a difference at the best of times...
