I have a client who running Windows XP on 32 workstations (don't laugh, it's a requirement of the EMR system) and one system has a very weird issue that I haven't been able to fix.  When the user is typing they prefer to use the numbers located above the alpha characters on the keyboard.  When they press the number 1 it moves the open window to the right monitor, and when they press the number three 3 it moves the open window to the left monitor.  This issue doesn't happen when using the number keypad.

System info:
  Windows XP 32bit, fully patched.
  New keyboard

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
