I need help, since last night, my keyboard type one wrong character. Instead of typing "r" it type either u or 4. I'm running a virus scan right now but for now nothing. And when I searched internet I can't find my p4oblem. I find more of multiple letters one wrong. And I can't keep on typing and using ctrl+v all the time. I did learned that alt-114 also a way to type r....

For a deskopt: try another keyboard.
For a laptop: before replacing the keyboard try if an external (USB-)keyboard works OK.

Did you try reseting the keyboard mapping?
