wrong characters when i type inside IE 11 browser RRS feed

  • Question

  • Win 7 completely patched and updated, using IE 11. Only when using keyboard (have tried two wired and one wireless) and only typing in browser what is typed changes, if i type for example"tttttt" i get "nomam" address bar typing no issues.

    Any other browser works fine as do apps like word and word pad.

    I have wiped all and reset browser. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled,

    I have checked all keyboard settings, did a complete system scan (webroot internet security)

    Upgraded the Bios.

    When i remote in or use on-screen keyboard no issues. 

    any ideas appreciated.

    Make sure you AV products are up-to-date with the latest definitions.

    Make sure your IE encoding settings are set to use utf-8 Unicode. (View>Encoding menu)

    Include links to problem websites with your questions. Some websites (particularly Japanese) may be using ja-jp encoding and not utf-8.
