Windows 7: Can't type after playing video in browser

Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit
Can't type after playing video in browser

Hi Guys,

I have this really odd issue where whenever I play a video (either HTML5 embedded or Flash) my Logitech G510 'locks up' so i cant type anything on any window.

As soon as I pause or close the page with the video I can type again.

This happens on all 3 browsers I've got installed (Firefox, IE, Chrome).

What I've done so far:
  • Uninstall Flash (using the tool to remove every subfolder) and restarted.
  • Updated the Logitech G510 software.
  • Removed the HID drivers and rebooted (changed USB ports).
  • Rolled back to earliest System Restore point.

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Might have a look at my reply at (Firefox) My Issue "Firefox is already running..........", could be a similar issue.
