Windows 7: ctrl c ctrl v not working.

ctrl c ctrl v not working.

Recently i've encountered this problem with CTRL C and V unable to copy or paste anything anywhere. Able to do so with mouse where right click copy paste works for that. CTRL F works which means ctrl button is functional. i've tried restoring to an earlier restore point, ran SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker but no errors. I still can't solve this problem.. I've clicked on all the relevant search results from google but none works for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do CTRL-C , that should place something in clipboard. Then paste by using mouse right click->paste. Works?

Right click and select copy. Then paste using CTRL-V. Works?

In command prompt:
Code:
dir/s  c:\
This produces a lot of output. Press CTRL-C after a few seconds. Command will be aborted so output should stop. Works?

Press CTRL-V. This should put ^V on your screen. Works?

Right click->copy. This copies something to clipboard. That works as you said
Now copy something else using CTRL-C. Now right click->paste. Does it paste nothing, or does it paste what you copied by Right click->copy?

in command prompt press ctrl-v nothing happens?

also try ^Q^W^E^R^T^Y^U^O^P^A^D^F^G^K^L^Z^X^B^N
So ctrl+Q, ctrl+W etc. Works?

CTRl-h =backspace
ctrl-m=return
ctrl-s=pause

Which don't work?
in notepad ctrl-i (=tab) and ctrl-j(=new line)
