I have been using my keyboard for forever and all of a sudden it had this weird thing. sometimes it starts writing backwards while typing. it freezes writing for a while, when i stop pushing the keys it writes them all in reverse order. i think it may be a virus but the scans didn't show anything. do you have any ideas why this may happen? thank you for your help.

Did you try with another keyboard? Did you reinstall drivers? Did you check if the backspace button is not stuck by something... sticky! lol – r0ca Oct 18 '10 at 20:21
    
The reason i did not do these is sometimes the keyboard works perfectly fine. For example now it works, but did not work ten minutes ago. Thats why i thought maybe it is a virus, activated by a program maybe so wondered if anyone have been infected by something like that. – dagcilibili Oct 18 '10 at 20:34

Do you have a "right to left" language installed?

It could be that you are hitting the key combination that activates it.
