Keyboard hacked?

I go to Bikeforums.net and as of last couple weeks my keyboard misses characters constantly at that site only. I run Kasperskey 2015 Internet Security and Windows Defender, no reported issues. Both are updated daily. Any tips?

Yeah, and wait 30 minutes after eating before going into the water. Do you have an explanation of why this is a suggestion? DNS poisoning?

Are you 100% sure it happens only at that site? i.e. it's not that somehow you just type different words/characters at that site? How old is the keyboard?

This happens if I access with my laptop or my desktop. It is something involving that site only.

Researching DNS poisoning.

This stuff started about 2 weeks ago, I've had Kasperskey for a couple years with no problems. I bank online so if it is a key logger protection I'm reluctant to disable it.

Update: I signed out of the site, deleted the site from my favorites list, cleared cookies. Rebooted the computer and signed back in fresh and the keyboard problem is gone. The site loads quicker now with less ads too. Thanks guys

Researching DNS poisoning.
Sorry, I wasn't really suggesting that as a cause. I was asking why someone suggested changing DNS as having 'anything' to do with this.
