Have I got a virus?

Every time I type the letters "***" as a block or word and then send it over the internet or email with that combination of letters my PC sends *** instead. It may happen with this note. The letters are

A

L

L

Emails with "***" anywhere end up as *** even within other words such as sm***, t*** etc.

Do I have a virus ? If so how do I get rid of it?

If you are using a wireless keyboard then change the batteries or if it's a wired keyboard then try another keyboard, I know of no virus that would cause that type of problem.

The letters appear corectly on my PC when I type them The Transformation only happens when the wording I have typed is sent over the internet either to sites like this or in emails.

In emails the correct version remains in my sent box but *** the recipents get is *** instead of "***"

Strange is it not????
