Windows 7: Delete, backspace, and arrow keys activate twice

Delete, backspace, and arrow keys activate twice

Whenever I use the arrow, backspace, or delete keys, it's as if the key was pressed twice. i.e. if backspace is pressed, two characters are deleted, if the left arrow key is pressed, the cursor moves two spaces, etc

how do I fix?

You test with another keyboard to see if the problem is with your keyboard.

Testing with another keyboard is generally the best suggestion, but if you don't have one available or just want to try something else, visit the following link;

Change keyboard settings - Microsoft Windows Help

You state this only happens with arrow, backspace or delete keys which is odd.

E key and arrow keys working intermittently
Hello everyone.. The "e" key and arrow keys (not sure if there are others yet) are working intermittently. I either have to a) reboot the computer only to have it stop working again later, or b) wait for it to start working again on its own. The odd thing about this is that it doesn't matter...
