Windows 7: keyboard CTRL+C doesn't work

keyboard CTRL+C doesn't work

CTRL + V works.
C key itself works
CTRL key itself works

But CTRL + C to copy to clipboard doesn't work. (Copying using mouse works though).

Why?

Why?
DO both left and right CTRL + C not work? Maybe a keyboard issue, or a keyboard driver.

Nope not work. Just uninstalled keyboard from device manager and reinstalled no luck.
Edit: Just tried Ubuntu live cd, CTRL+C works there...

Fixed. Found a tip from another forum that it could be another program "trapping" all of my CTRL + C. Also thank you zigzag for making me think it is a driver related issue which helped me point to right direction (software related).

I was running a program called "Synergy" which I use to share my keyboard and mouse over LAN. Uninstalled that program and everything works now - thank you so much!!!!
