Random screen/keyboard erros

This may sound too vague to provide assistance but...

For no apparent reason my keyboard stopped working today and now whatever I click on the desktop produces random results - Outlook opened 67 times, menus pop up from nowhere, explore opens 17 times and folder contents appear to open themselevs.

I thought a key was stuck on the keyboard to start with so I have changed keyboards, tried different mice, de-isntalled and re-installed the keyboard software.

I am currently using a PC networked to the doomed one so the PC seems to be working but if I click on anything on the creen all hell breaks loose on the display.

Thank you for reading this far..is there an obvious answer or have I been taken over by a virus?


can you start in safe mode?

I tried to a couple of times - prsessing F8 as the machine starts up - but it wouldn't do it.

When computer is starting just keep tapping F8 dont hold it down,I take it you cant run any of your Anti-Virus or Spyware programs,

Sorry - I have been away. I tried tapping, holding and cursing and nothing worked. I have decided to get somebody in to look at the problem.

Thanks you for replying though.
