can anyone help please? I have been asked find a solution to someones machine been taken over in the middle of the user typing a word document and unrelated text inserted! I have tried the usual...virus scans etc and eveything seems as normal. any ideas?

is the problem repeatable? Does the user recognise the inserted text? Could they be inadvertently hitting ctrl+V and pasting the contents of the clipboard. maybe the keyboard has another paste shortcut key?

the user does not recognise the inserted text....it bears no relation to anything he has been working on. have asked him whether or not he could have accidently inserted text but it is a different subject matter altogether! Really weird!

has the text been set as a macro?

and a certain combination of keys is inserting the "macroed" text.
