    Ok so I don't know why, but for some reason my keyboard shortcuts have changed randomly so what I used to turn up the volume with now takes me to dashboard, turn down volume is desktop, to play is spaces, etc.
    Also it puts a black frame around things that I'm using or have clicked on and if there is text it will start to read it. It's like I have a virus or malware but I can't find anything with scans or virus/malware detection. And I know Macs aren't supposed to have viruses, but this makes me question that. Any ideas on how to fix would be great!

     -> System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> (deselect) Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.

     -> System Preferences -> Universal Access -> Seeing -> VoiceOver -> Off.

    No, you don't have a virus. Just sounds like someone has been messing around in your system preferences.

    Thanks bud. That fixed it. I figured I didn't have a virus, but it all happened while I was using it so I don't know how it happened unless I just am retarded and clicked on something. Idk. Thanks again.
