Strange Keyboard effect.........

I've come across a strange issue with my keyboard.


When I press the 1 key, just above the Q & TAB key I get this: ]
Or I'll get this: } when I press the SHIFT & 1 keys.


If I close down my browser, and go use Word or Note Pad, it is perfectly fine.


UPDATE

I did a extensive scan, and came up with some kind of key logger,
that buried it self into some cookies that I was keeping from a trusted site.


Once I removed the cookies, the issue went away.

Yeah,


It always amuses me how these new malware(s) have such strange effects on my older hardware.

I have an old 104 Keyboard that is PS/2 Connected, plus I still have my old floppy drives in this computer.
Thus, if the Floppies start acting strangely,(Light comes on and buzzes).
I know something has snuck in.

Hah!

I still have MSDOS 6.22 on 1.44Meg 3 1/2 inch floppies!


I also have Windows 3.11 on Floppies, and I also still have the 2 inch thick manual that came with it.
