Question about Computers & Internet
I have been using w/o problems the Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1 for 1.5 yrs. Today, I used it in the morning and when I came home the mouse is working, but the keyboard keys are not working properly. No letter keys work; the number keys are reversed (1 is 9, 2 is 8, 3 is 7 etc. weather on the 10 key or keyboard row. The "0" key on the 10 key is z; and the "0" key on the number row performs a return.) The space bar is the Num lock key; the back space key is *, the left arrow key is [ ; the right arrow key is ]; the up arrow key is -; the down arrow key is =; the tab key is /; the enter key on the 10 key is 0; the enter key on the main keyboard is +; there are a few other keys that perform other functions that they are not supposed to be doing. The only key that does what is supposed to do is the Start Key. It does bring up the start menu. I have rebooted several times. I have down loaded new drivers, I have changed USB ports, nothing fixes the problem. What is peculiar is the mouse still works. Fortunately the keyboard on my lap top works, but I did not purchase a wireless keyboard to use the computers keyboard. Can you offer any assistance?
Could be spyware or a virus. Try this.........If this does not help let me know.
Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link.
