Today my computer has developed a annoying habit. It seems whenever I type fast the mouse and keyboard stop responding. This is occasionally just for a few seconds however I have had to do a hard reset on two occasions. Last night I was doing a lot of typing with no trouble and did nothing in the meantime to make it develop such a problem. Any idea what it could be? It also occasionally happens when I am just moving my mouse about. This bit has only just developed.
What program are you typing in? When I type into Word 2000 I find it takes about 3 seconds to catch up with me (70wpm) but after that it keeps up no problem. If I type text into MS Publisher text boxes (or any other program that accepts text) there doesn't seem to be a time lag at all. So, to me looks like it's all down to MS Word.
AV? Keylogger? Anti-virus and someone checking what I type?
I have a optical mouse and regular keyboard, both go into standard keyboard/mouse slots with wires.
At first I thought it was a word problem though it happens elsewhere too. It is getting to the stage that if I leave my computer for a while then shove the mouse I get a angry system beep and a freeze before movement.
I do not think it is a trojan. I have downloaded nothing suspect to get one and why would someone be hacking me and causing my input devices to lock up? Surely they would want me to think all is normal.
