    Yesterday, I cleaned up the start up menu, unchecked programs not were no longer used, and then I did a defrag yesterday and now whenever I type on my emachine e642 (yes i Know it is old) anyway it keeps putting in the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\. It keeps going until I hit the back space. I have tried the following:
    I checked all the items back in the startup menu. so it is exactly the same as yesterday.
    system restore back to the start of yesterday
    uninstall and reinstall keyboard drivers
    added another keyboard, it did the same thing for ages now it is working ok. but not the laptop keyboard.
    I cleaned the \ (back slash) key

    I have read many forums they do not give any help other to say they have dropped liquids on it. I ensure you I have not.
    Can someone please help me, this is my Mums laptop and I so hope I have not done any damage to it. I need it for my new job tomorrow :)
    Any advice would help me
