    I have TWO trojans on my HD right now and I believe that one of them is making the letter "o" on my keyboard go crazy even when I stop pressing it!

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Apparently, I have...

    trojan_porndial.b

    AND

    trojan_istbar.k

    Is it likely that these trojans are causing my letter "o" to flip out? And is there any way to remove these trojans without having to reach deep in my empty student pockets.

    ALL HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED :)

    The anti virus program that you ran to detect them can't remove them?
    What did you use to get the name of the trojans?

    1) recreate "o" effect
    2) unplug keyboard

    If it stops, it's your keyboard.

    turn your keyboard upside down and shake it.

    Use your virus scanner to remove it.
    Or write down the name of the virus and go to the site that made your virus scanner and search for that virus name and they should list details how to remove it.
