Possible virus or malware on my computer?


placeholder

Recommended Posts

When I type on any of the keys of my laptop, a tone is generated but that is all. No alphameric symbol is generated nor do the commands such as backspace.  Also, I can't connect to the Internet. When I click on a link on the google page, for example, a file called download.html is apparently downloaded to my computer. I immediately delete the file. Anyone have any idea of what is going on?

Normally you hear a tone when you type if something with the keyboard or typing is incorrect.

 

I suggest:

a) clean the keyboard, maybe one or more keys are stuck

b) try an external keyboard

c) reboot the computer and go directly into the BIOS (often by pressing DEL). Then look if your keyboard works. Windows viruses are not active when you type in the BIOS.

Do you have sticky keys accidentally turned on? That function makes noises when you press keys.
