Computer acting freaky
by remaw - 5/21/12 9:59 AM
I have a Dell with XP. I'm above a begginer but below Intermediate when it comes to computer issues.
Recently on my desk top menus will pop up on their own and the cursor will run from top to bottom at rapid speed on all of them. If I click a clear space on the desk top it stops momentarily but then resumes it's evil trick.
When reading pages, the back buton takes over
When trying to type, scroll lock will come on automatically and I am unable to type
If I turn off the computer to stand by, it will reboot itself and open a program several times.
I tried a system restore, it did not work.
At this point in time I have no virus scan and due to the problems I am unable to download one.
Is this wsomething I can fix if someone walks me through it or should I take it in and what do you think the problem is?
