When I try to save any file my keyboard gives random outputs when naming. I have to use sticky notes to create the file name then cut and paste it into the save window. Here are some examples of the results of pressing each key 8 times.It only does this when saving a file. Everywhere else the keyboard functions normally.

Have a look in Programs & Features to see any suspicious programs installed. try using cmd to view installed programs

Step 1.
wmic product get name

Step 2.
wmic product where name=“ProductName” call uninstall

replace "ProductName" with the name of the program that you want to uninstall from the list brought up from the first command.

We had the same issue precisely, we are not 100% sure what we did, but it was to do with Function NumLock... the NumLock was set to a weird setting. Now we fixed it we cannot break it again... but at least it is fixed.
