Hi,

Earlier this evening I was able to surf and use my keyboard from my other computer.  I then installed Java JRE 64 bit version.  After that, I was unable to use my keyboard to do web searches.

I did a system restore to a point before I did the Java install.  The system still wouldn't allow me to use my keyboard.  Please help.  Note: The keyboard is wireless.  However, I tried changing the batteries.

Thanks.

Phil

try a wired keyboard first - it can be bad
or test this kbd on a working PC

For some unknown reason I was able to use the keyboard today when I booted up.

I know that there is some Nielsen Online s/w running and perhaps that hung the keyboard.  What do you think?

Thanks.

i don't know that software, but you can disable all programs at startup for testing.
run msconfig - select startup tab, and click disable all
check if it helps

I ran MalwareBytes anti-Malware & found some keylogging objects.  I deleted them and then I was able to use the keyboard.  Perhaps this was the problem.

I theorize that the keylogging s/w malfunctioned.  It was preventing me from typing and seeing the results on the screen.  Once the s/w was deleted using the above mentioned anti-Malware s/w,, I was able to use the keyboard.
