    recently my mother called me to fix her computer so I couldn't believe what she was saying, I thought probably she doesn't know how to use the computer so I just told her to restart, but the problem persisted

    long story short when I drove to her home PC was indeed going nuts, windows pop-ins (without ads), pc logging out, keyboard would stop working or write random stuff, even pop-ups of enable network shares and windows features (which could indicate intelligent behaviour) popped up though I must say that this did not look like an intelligent behaviour, intersting that even by unplugging the ethernet the random bahaviour persisted

    at some point the router would go dead (ghost in the shell I thought), but turned out it accidentally unplugged itself

    pc setup was OS armor (full rules), exe radar pro, simple wall, malwarebytes anti-exploit, panda cloud

    in simplewall I blocked MS teams internet access, updated windows and MS teams, installed a different AV, blocked access to device census 2, the problem immediately stopped

    I suspect MS team exploit which is the preferred target after covid-19 or else sometimes the touch panel can give this erratic pressing of buttons if you pour stuff on it, but too weird to be touch panel I think
