Have a Dell optiplex 380, Windows 7 pro, MS office 2010.  Logitec wireless keyboard and mouse.  Seems like "sticky keys" or filter  filters keys are enabled but they are not.  This is the 3rd keyboard and mouse in the last 2 months..  any ideas would be great..

Set up a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and test the keyboard and mouse.

I guess the cause is interference signal. change the keyboard USB to the back of computer port ( if available ) .
When using a USB 2.0 2.4GHz wireless peripheral device (such as a mouse, keyboard, or headphones) with a PC that also has a USB 3.0 peripheral device plugged in, you may experience erratic operation caused by interference. This is especially likely to happen when using USB 3.0 remote hard drives or flash drives.

hah - the blessings of wireless..i avoid wireless wherever i can, only use it when needed

often moving a device several inches may change the behavior - did you try that?
eg now the usb dongle is in the back - move it to the front usb port, or VV for a test
