Cannot type & some programs say 'another user'
My keyboard types fine in some programs and browsers but not others. I tried different keyboards with same results. I cannot type anything in the Opera Browser & Microsoft Word now refuses typing. In Opera sometimes typing is accepted but then in a flash form (Crossword on USA Today site) the keyboard letters record as numbers counting the keystrokes. I tried the on-screen keyboard with same results.
Also on occasion, software will not open and shows an error message 'Another User is using this software'. But I am the only user. After 'sleep', my Logitech Camera does not reactivate and says another program is using the device. Could these issues be related to the keyboard problem?
I suspect a setting is wrongly set in the operating system. But don't know what. Anyone else have these problems and what is the remedy?
Been fighting this issue for 5 weeks.
Using Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on AMD processor with 16GB memory.
