Kazza is well known for infecting computers with viruses... click here and use the free online virus check.

You will need to remove Kazza, it looks as though it has brought some virus with it. Use a removal tool then do a full scan for any virus. I think you have AVG and Adaware on your system, but here are the websites in case you have not.

Adaware click here

AVG click here

or a free click here checkup which will remove trojans, jokes and all the nasties too. It also has unknown virus detection.

Never had a problem like that before.
Now everything is normal let me try to explain what was happening.
When searching on Google found that typing "m" the browser mininmised other letters struck had different results,some brought up My Desktop,another Run box,while another Find files ,each time minimising browser.
My stilted typing was the result of that,an achievement for me to converse and for you to understand? but very annoying.
Things were a litle slow reacting when I booted up tonight,and to be honest have installed Blubster to meet my daughter half way,the lesser of two evils maybe,but even that is not working when tested tonight...so I am in trouble tomorrow.
Thanks for all your help and I trust Kazza wont return,but I am not here all the time and my daughter is sure its the bees knees...what can one do?

Vaguely remember that there used to be a way of locking the windows key on, so that taping the "R" key would bring up the run box, "M" would bring up minimise, "E" would bring up explorer etc.

I rememeber seeing it set on Win98 systems a couple of times by accident & having to tap the windows key 3/4 times to clear it, due to senility I can't remember how to start it.

If you're running Win98 may have been this to blame & not Kazza
