Hey whenever I press "t" it takes me to the search bar instead of it coming up as just t. It also uses the 6 button. I know it is not num lock. That's not all though as "u" is 8 and F7 and p is to stop using the search bar. Some others have changed too. Sometimes nine is p and the only way to use "t" is to copy and paste it and it is driving me mental please help.

Thank you
Hi

Now I get it and I'm sure about my answer.

It's circuit problem very frequent on Acer (Chineese assembled). Only a qualified technician can take a look at it for possible repair as it would be impossible to give instructions online nor do we have circuit testing equipment.

Sorry about that, I should have asked sooner.

Regards

Download, install and run Malwarebyte which you can find on this site:

http://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebyt es-anti-malware

Ensure you make an update.

Please request a FULL system scan, which may take from 20 minutes to hours. Do not interfere no matter how long in takes. The creators of Malwarebyte recommend that while the tool is running that you go do something else, such as watching a rerun of Gone with the Wind or read Tolstoy's War and Peace.

If Malwarebyte restarts your system, launch it again to finish the Full scan.

When the scan is completed, delete all items found.

Once your computer is clean and working normally just to be on the safe side
*Turn off system restore and wait 30 seconds,
*Turn it back on and create a new restore point.

This way it gets rid of anything bad that might have gotten saved in a restore point and you have a clean restore point to use in the near future if needed.
Do not turn it off until your computer is clean and working normally because you might need to use it if something goes wrong during the clean-up process.
It is better to go back to an infected restore point if something goes wrong then to not be able to undo changes that were damaging.
