  • Please take Oldhobo's suggestion. If it doesn't work, please test the issue in Safe Mode.

    If the issue doesn't occur in Safe Mode, it should be a software problem. You can try to use Clean Boot to narrow down the issue.

    Thanks.

  • I have a similar though much more specific issue. When I type in a textbox in Excel 2007 in Windows 7, the forward and backward keys are reversed. They work as they should everywhere else, so it's not a keyboard fault, but in an Excel textbox, they reverse. Up Down is OK. Left Right is reversed. Very weird. This is on the keyboard on my Compaq laptop.

  • This is happen when using Outlook 2007 or MSN messenger as well.

    maybe it happens with other software but i didn't catch the same behavior till now.

    maybe there is a problem in the keyboard messages on windows 7.
