my computer types on it's own!

I have an advent 6422 running xp home edition. It has suddenly started hanging and then starts typing on its own when I am in a programme like word, yahoo, excel, emails; in fact any programme where it is possible to type. The words are random, but it will type for ever if left. Norton says no virus. Nothing in clipboard

Help!

Do you think it might be trying to tell you something?... ;o)

Have you got the speech to text thingy turned on?
Don't have XP myself but I've read of this happening.

Leave it for a bit it may write a book that you can sell. But no it sounds like you need to remove your MSOffice and reinstall plus have you loaded all patch files for it

Did it write this post as well?

Maybe someone has a REALLY good trojan horse on ya poota and they just happen to be majorly dyslexic?

so far so funny- thanks for the laugh, I needed that. No it won't write a book nor did it post the query, it isn't that clever unfortunately. No speech on, will try reinstalling office.

any chance that you use a HP wireless keyboard and do you have a neighbor using the same thing? :o)

...ALIENS!

On Ravin's point, have you tried another keyboard, it may be faulty?
