    Hi,

    I have a very strange problem. I cannot type URL/adress/location bar or text boxes - keyboard locks/freezes up. I have to go to the Task Manager to End Task (to close browser:Firefox, Google Chrome)
    I restored my OS from my previous Norton Ghost image, but nothing changed.
    1.There are not any viruses (scan with ESET NOD32 Antivirus)
    2.I can use the keyboard almost everywhere but browsers (Firefox,Google Chrome)
    3.Firefox SaveMode - The same, nothing changed.
    4.My KB has USB connection, but I tried to use my old one (old cable connection) and there is the same situation.
    P.S.
    Every time when I try to type Firefox freezes, and I have to Start Task Manager to close it.
    I did CMD SFC /scannow and it found nothing.

    Maybe you should try to disable hardware acceleration, in options, advanced settings, general, then restart firefox.
    Be sure you 've installed latest graphic card driver.
    Also do Winkey + Left Shift.
    Rules.

    What real time security software do you have installed? That sounds a lot like a conflict between anti keyloggers, or between an anti keylogger and an antivirus, for example.

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Eset Nod32 Antivirus. I tried to disable hardware acceleration but it didn't help.

    P.S.
    The same problem when I try to write message in the Skype (freezes)

    Process of elimination. Start uninstalling stuff and see. Start with AVs/FW's/AntiKeyloggers..

    BTW scan with Eset (or any AV) doesn't qualify you to say you have no viruses. Try Hitmanpro, Herd Protect, then Emsisoft Emergency Kit and Norton Power Eraser, then you can probably say you are clean.
