Specs: Windows XP
This begins few days ago. So far my XP SP3
works fine.
However right now following starnge things are
automatically on my system ( even
right now)

1. Browser goes full screen automatically then
restored, again it goes
Full screen and so on. and it happens in very
fast along with several
other strange - automatic keyboard tasks like:
Printing backslash key, then deleting and
enter key etc.

When notepad opens and writing on it
following keyboard
Goes fullscreen (F11) , backslash key prints,
deletes them very fast
(backspace key) goes next line (enter key)

Also if I left click on desktop then menu
appers and suddenly it
disappers before selecting any tasks on it.

Please tell me a solution remove this
weired behavior from my

I'm sure that this is not a hardware problem.
this should be a software
or a driver issue.

This strange behaviour happens to start after
some time of working on
PC, say 10 miniutes.

I highly value and appreciate any kind of
answer that I can resolve my

I wouldn't rush into excluding a hardware problem just yet.

Two possibilities spring to mind:

1. Faulty keyboard

2. Overheating (you said after 10 mins) - Clean fans and airways

some other bloke...

i would try a diff. keybd. first since they're usually easy to come by (borrow one if you don't have spare).

try booting safe-mode and/or selective (verify each program being loaded/run at boot) and see if problem still there.

run msiinfo32 or use tasklist and examine programs currently running. try removing ones that appear non-vital, suspicious or kbd-related (macro expanders etc). i know these hard to qualify, but sometimes you can tell.

it looks like the same, or similar sequences of keystrokes are being transmitted (f11, \, del). do these interfere with other programs? (wordpad, write, excel, commandprompt etc)
if so, try running a keystroke checker (use google "keyboard logger", "keyboard intercept", keycheck, etc) or write one in debug or qbasic (fairly simple to do).

Have you already scanned the computer for possible viruses and trojans?
