Keyboards are cheap to replace, couple of quid at the most.

In the meantime, pick it up, turn it over and hit it a few times on the back (not letting it touch the table), you will be truly amazed and/or disgusted by what falls out of it.

Oh, and stop eating over your keyboard :-P

Thanks - it seems to be behaving after a good whack:)) I don't eat by the keyboard well try not to! - use to but was horrified by the mess:x I've got some of that gunk gel in a tub for cleanig it so maybe I need to do that.

Will run malware bytes and a scan this weekend.

Thanks again - sorry I did not reply earlier but have been out all day.
