This can be a few things.
1. Stuck keys, some keyboard can get dust, food, hair in them which cause the keys to stick. If you have a vacuum cleaner you can gently vacuum the keyboard to remove some of these obstructions.

2. bad keyboard, if after cleaning the keyboard the problem continues you may have a bad keyboard and it may need replaced.
If it is a desktop you can pick them up pretty cheap at almost any store that sells computer parts. If it is a laptop the keyboard can be replaced as well, but may need to be done by a computer repair shop or other professional.

3. virus, back in the 80s-90s viruses that allowed another person to take control over your computer where very common. Now days these types of viruses still exist but are not as common. You may need to update and run an anti-virus program or have your computer looked at by a computer repair shop. However, I would not do this until the first two solutions have been tried.

Further help can be provided if you let us know if full sentences are being typed, or just random letters.

Trojan types letter p automatically

My question is how do you know it is a Trojan doing this. My keyboard typed zzzzzzzzzzzzz automatically as well and after frustration I looked at the keyboard and the key was stuck down. Try cleaning the keyboard or getting another keyboard to see if this still keeps doing this. It is a keyboard issue nothing else. It may have some debris under the key so try a new keyboard. This is my suggestion. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Well it could be several things, not the least of things is radiated electrical noise. Seriously, I had several customers get hit with this problem. One test was to hold your hands just over the keyboard. If random characters appear, you sitting within the radius of a strong transformer.

Look around the area you are in, do you see any type of antenna nearby? If you do, rotate your lap top 90 degrees.

Also, the keyboard may be starting to fail. From your description I would suspect that the scan code for the key you pressed is not getting reported back to the CPU properly.

Replacing the keyboard on a Satellite is fairly straight forward. The replacement part from Toshiba only cost $35. and that included shipping.

My keyboard automatically typing letter y and apostrophe's..

Sounds like the keyboard might be bad. Run your fingers thru the keys in a sweepting motion and see if that stops the keyboard from continously typing keys on the screen. If that doesn't do it then its time for a replacement keyboard.
