Seems like "sticky keys" ... are enabled but they are not.

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

Have all of the keyboards been of the same make model and / or are wireless?

What about a simple wired keyboard and mouse?


John - user is leaving in a week.. will try as last resort..
Scott - All wireless last 2 were same - Logitec   Tried wired but she refused.  Will setup wired tomorrow after storm today.

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


i removed the wireless and installed the wired.  Will toy around when have more time.
