Word runs away on me!

I start to change a client number in a word document and then the cursor runs down to the bottom and will not allow me to access it for a few minutes.

Also for some reason the system will load up to the login screen and does not show the password bar for you to enter it.  Just the blue vista screen.

Thanks,

Sounds like you have a sticky key, check your keys on your keyboard to see if one is stuck down, or try a different keyboard etc.

What is special about the client number? Is it in a Word field?

Nope to Malware, I have scanned twice and also with Kasperksy.

It now is just doing it once in awhile instead of every time.

Keyboard has been cleaned as well.

I will keep you posted.

And is it still confined to editing a particular piece of text?

Hello everyone,

Well I have the system back and have updated system, registry repair, registry Defrag, Disc Scan, Auslogics Disk Defragment etc.

System will not act up at all at the office.  I guess next step is to go to customers and see what happens.

I have also asked them to bring keyboard for me to clean to see if it was a possible sticking key or something.

So, hopefully I will be able to go in the next day or so and see if it acts up for me.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts it is appreciated.
