I have a keyboard virus that adds characters to a few select keyboard buttons eg this had to be carefully deleted to provide you with coherent text. My Trend Micro Max Security 10 does not recognise this occurring in scans.

Hi barnballot. Are you certain that this is a kind of "virus" and not just a malfunctioning keyboard?

@woodartisan55, thanks for the reply!

Hi @barnballot, sorry for not getting back earlier. 

For your issue, as @woodartisan55 mentioned, we suspect that it's a keyboard problem. Have you tried another keyboard yet? If not, can you try another keyboard to check your problem is solved or not?

After trying the above solution, if you're still encountering the same problem, please provide a description or picture of the message, we'll assist you further. Thanks.
