Hi, this is probably a very weird thing to be asking but i can't think of anywhere else to ask it.
I'm using visual c# on windows xp in work. I build basic database stuff for internal use.
I was copy/pasting some code from one event to another a while ago and when i hit cntl+v, what had been a line of code had become a text sentance. I did it a few times and it kept happening except the text kept changing.
I said to the other people working around me what was happening and one of them asked me to read out the text. When i did he said it was something he was typing. This happened a few times over a few months but i didn't mention it when it happened again.
To cut a long story short i suspect the person in question of interfering with my computer but i just wanted to ask if there is another explanation for it. I don't actually know that much about computers outside of the programming and database work that i do so I'm hoping someone here might have an explanation.
Any chance at all this is some sort of bizzare fluke related to windows or the c# ide?

It is not by default in Windows and I'm not even sure if it is installed anymore. It use to come as part of the resource kit if I remember correctly. In other words it is not a Windows or IDE issue.
