Dgine what you describe seems highly improbable especially with the laptop and a USB keyboard with a new driver.
Have you tried a different keyboard language to see if the key does this:[[?

Hello,

Addition: Both keys (left and right squre bracket) type two characters!

For some odd reason, I don't have restore points beyond 6 days ago...

There's a button called something like "show more restore points" did you click that as well?

How are "system points" configured in system properties? Check it's used size and max size. Almost full? To small?

Yes, shift+ key as well gives me a double character.

And no, it doesn't do it in Command Prompt nor in Sage's ACT! client management software.

It doesn't do it in Safe mode but does it in a CLean boot...

I'll make mods on Restore Point Default but waht is done is done.

Yes, all Windows based such as Word, Excel, Notepad, Outlook.

I get two characters in any language keyboard ( I tried many). I use the French Canadian Multilingual keyboard.

So, here are the actual results:
1) actual key (left square bracket): ^^
2) shift + square bracket:
3) ctrl-alt square bracket: ``
4) actual key (right square bracket): (yes, only once)
5) shift+ right sqaure bracket: (yes, only one)
6) ctrl-alt right square bracket: ~~

That's all of it.
