I think I have a virus on my computer. We just got our brand new laptop fixed and we thought perhaps the key was stuck. It didn't appear so, but we decided to use a different laptop and it's done it on that computer- this made me conclude it's a virus. It just presses 0. We can use the computer for a short time and then it will happen again. Any help?

Have a look at anti-virus progs like Avast and AVG -- and anti malware progs SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes -- all free and widely recommended.

Personally, I would reformat the hard drive and reinstall the operating system and just put aside any floppydisks or CD/DVD which might have been infected.

try booting up in safe mode and see if it happens. by rights the virus shouldn't boot up when you enter safe mode.
