    { and [ popping up when I type

    when I begin to type while online I suddenly have either a { or a [ that appears out of nowhere first. For ex, I want to type www.Amazon and get {www.AMazon.

    Is this some sort of virus, trojan or??? I use Bitdefender and it is up to date.

    Thanks

    Try a different keyboard. Sounds like something wrong with your [ key.

    Run AdwCleaner to see if that finds anything.

    I recently had Amazon search engine try to foist itself upon me and while I declined that and got my www.google.co.uk back, when I was typing www. that would change to ww42.

    AdwCleaner found a rake of Amazon stuff to remove and I was okay after the cleanout.
