when I boot up my xp pro pc the bios come up and ask me for my password but in the password box the max amount of letters are already typed in. i delete them and type in the pass. next comes windows when it loads the max amount of letters are filled into the text box i delete all of them and type in my xp pass which is different form the bios one. the other error i literally noticed while typing this message is that when i try to make parentheses i can only get the right one ) i tried again an first a left ) came up but then a never ending stream of 9s came after it and only stopped when i hit a different key. now the only working 9 key is on the numpad. the one above the board won't make 9s or left )s ! i am going to try using a friends keyboard later and see if that resolves the prob.
p.s. this happened a while back but stopped. also i am currently scanning with Avast Ad-aware and Spycatcher.
