    Keys randomly stick (Not physically)


    Hello there,

    I have been having problems with keyboards on my new Windows 8.1 build. I have been able to replicate this using 2 different USB keyboards (Logitech G15 and Razer BlackWidow).

    Every once in a while when I am typing, a key will get "stuck" and type out several times on the screen. So for example, if I was typing the word update, it might look like this.

    updattttttttttttttttttttttte

    At first I thought it was the keyboard, but since I have switched and just had it happen on the new keyboard.

    I have switched USB ports on my mobo and that didnt seem to help it.

    I am using the default Windows drivers as well for the keyboard.

    Any ideas?

    You know what? This sounds like a typical malware stunt. I would get malwarebytes antimalware(it's free) and run a full scan:

    Ran a full MBAM scan and it came up clean.

    Running a full Eset scan as well and will post the results once its done.

    Update: Full Eset scan came up clean as well.
