Question about HP Computers & Internet
I would first suspect a hardware issue (assuming you are not on an office VPN from your home which can drop keystrokes). If this is a PS2 (round plug) keyboard, try a USB keyboard and see what happens. If this is a USB keyboard and you have a PS2 port, try a PS2 keyboard. If you are using any type of keyboard adapter (PS2 -> USB or vice versa) get rid of it and get the correct keyboard. Newegg.com sells basic ones for about $10.
If none of those techniques eliminate the problem, check out your keyboard profile in device manager (right click on my computer, select properties, select the hardware tab and then select device manager. Find the section that says keyboard and see if you have an exclamation point (yellow circle) there. See if you have any other exclamation points. Correct the problem.
Finally, the least likely scenario is a key stroke logger (keylogger). Download the free programs spybot and/or threatfire and have them check your PC.
