text entering backwards

Just recently sometimes when I enter text into a box it goes in backwards eg today going into my on-line bank account instead of 100958 being entered it entered right to left and appeared as 859001. Another example is that a postcode will appear as LR3 7OS (being SO7 3RL).

This is happening on various sites, but not always.

I've run Avast, Defender, CCleaner and found nothing nasty.

The text cursor is also very shaky.

Any suggestions, please.

try running sfc /scannow in case it is a corruption within windows. If may ask for the windows cd and keep asking for it I have clicked on retry over 100 times on some occasions. If you do not have a cd google running sfc without cd for instructions.

Thanks howard I'll try that when I can. At the moment when I go into All Programs (Vista) the menu zooms up and down and I can't hit Accessories to get into Run :-(

Download what from that link rawprawn? Seems to be all spy equipment.

btw I did run the above in Safe Mode.

howard I've now got into Run but when I enter the scannow nothing happens - I remember experiencing something similar to this before.

Sas found a few tracking cookies thats all.

But when the Restart completed Windows told me that SPMgr.exe is not working.

Don't know yet of any other affects, but the text cusor is still shaky.
