    I recently installed Mac OS Lion in my mac desktop and i've been having some problems since.

    Just now, no matter what program or application i'm using, it just starts scrolling down the pages when i press the backspace button, it's just impossible to work!!!

    Could it be a virus? Or it's related to Lion? Can anyone help me!!??

    That's really weird. The spacebar or down arrow key is normally the button used to scroll down.

    A few questions: What kind of keyboard are you using and is it wireless? Has anything been spilled on the keyboard ever? What kind of mouse are you using and is it wireless as well?

    Other than hardware issues (damaged keyboard/mouse, low batteries if they are wireless) I can't find any particular settings in Lion that would cause such behavior. One thing to try is go to system prefs> keyboard>keyboard shortcuts > and click Restore Defaults.

    Other than that, you can try creating a different user account and see if the same thing happens in the new account or not.
