Ghost writing

I have a (medion) laptop pentium 3 which run xp and nortons antivirus. Dont ask me any more specifics.
When i open a window with a dialogue box and place the cursor in to the box, text or words appear. This also happens if I open a word document and not online. The words are rendom which include symbols and numbers.
I have just run various spyware which although has found various rubbish it has not solved the problem.
Any ideas folks?

Do you have an XP CD?

If so, insert it and then go to



sfc /scannow

Maybe a stupid thought, but you aren't using a wireless system by any chance. If so do you have a neighbour with something similar?
