Every once in a while my computer enters strange things all by itself, following several examples:

7<31
pp723
<4
,<p,
78p8p

 

This can happen if I have a notepad open (Jarte), or a Word document (2003), or a browser (Firefox 35.0).

Sometimes I notice it after I wake it from having been in Sleep mode, but not necessarily always. It apparently can also happen when I just leave it on but without doing anything.

 

I have run the Sophos virus removal tool scan and it says the computer is clean.

 

Any ideas what this could be? Thanks.
