Windows 7: PC being affected by CB Radios?

PC being affected by CB Radios?

Hi guys,

This is a weird one...but it's driving me crazy!

I don't have any new hardware, and I have wifi turned off on this PC. Every time a vehicle passes by my building my mouse/keyboard freezes (both are wired) and starts imputing it's own characters (generally a repeated character)...goes on for 7+ seconds. I had a MS wireless mouse, and bought a cabled one just in case. But the problem persists!

Any idea what is causing this? It never happened on vista (the one good thing I can say about that OS), or XP.

I'm sure it's a CB radio that's affecting it as I can hear them talking on my studio speakers when the keyboard/mouse freeze. (So it's police, taxis, buses, etc).

I have two towers hooked up via a wired KVM switch. Just the fact that it's coinciding since the time I installed win7/64-bit makes me think it's some driver thing...but how am I being affected by CB radio waves??

{get's hammer ready to destroy said PC! lol}

The first thing I would suspect is the KVM. Try disconnecting it, watching each machine (one at a time if you don't have the additional components, ie, monitor, keyboard, mouse) long enough for the problem to occur.
