    Basically my keyboard has stopped functioning properly al of a sudden. when i press the r-key 'rtq' appears instead, when i press the f-key 'afgh' appears instead, and when i press the v-key 'bnvz' appears. as you can imagine this is really frustrating to deal with. does anybody know what may be the issue?
    i have already tried resetting the pram.

    What Mac OS X version do you use? Since when does this happen? Has anything happened shortly before?
    Does it also happen in another, even temporarily created, user account?

    As to being a virus: No.

    Currently there are zero viruses affecting Mac OS X in public circulation, but there are other kinds of malware existing, that can infect your Mac.
