Windows 7: keyboard will not work with iE 8 64 bit nor win explore

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
keyboard will not work with iE 8 64 bit nor win explore

Odd one this, I have come up with a problem on windows 7 ultimate 64 bit in that the PS/2keyboard will not work with IE 8 64 bit, when I attempt to type anything
into IE 8 it stops responding, this problem is also apparent in windows
explorer, however IE 8 32 bit works fine and if i have IE 8 32 bit open both
windows explorer and IE 8 64 bit are fine if opened afterwards, I cannot find anything on the net and it is not the keyboard.

this problem is more weird then i thought as my keyboard will work in explorer as long as some other software is open the accepts keyboard input, such as firefox or ie 8 32 bit.

There can be any number of reasons, one may be compatiblity. You may want to try the compatiblity center to see if they can help.

Hope that your problem gets resolved quickly.
