I am running Windows 2000 Professional and something has hijacked the Shift+Ctrl keys. No matter what I am doing, if I hold Shift+Ctrl, the speaker beeps about once a second. Needless to say I can't use any text editing features that use Shift+Ctrl (selecting text by word for example - Shift+Ctrl+Arrow). I have restarted in safe mode with no change. I have disabled all startup programs with no joy, it still does it. I can't see anything in the task manager processes that is out of place.

Any suggestions?
