Altgr doesn't work after windows update, help!

Hi,
I just joined the forum and this is my first post, so i apologize if it's not the right section.

I just did a major update to the system, even though about every time I update Windows, something stops working. I couldn't resist the urge...
After the update i noticed my alt gr key it's not working anymore, i guess it's been hijacked by some service or background app, but i can't figure out who's the culprit.

I'd appreciate if someone could help me before i do a system restore.

Thanks,
Roland

I checked your link, but this only applies to the case where you have VirtualBox installed.
Thanks anyway...

I did a major system update, that's why i can't figure out which one messed up the ALTGR key.
I've already checked that link, and some other forums but non of them helped me till now.
Unfortunately i've also deleted my last good system restore point...

Samsung laptop user here. The solution is in Spanish, i think, but it worked for me. Probably you'll have to disable automatic updates.
