Windows 7: Behaving like key/button is stuck!

Behaving like key/button is stuck!

Hi there guys

I have had a strange intermittent problem with my PC for many months (Windows 7 Prem 64bit).

At times it behaves as if one of the keys is stuck, like the right or left arrow key. Sometimes when I click on things, I have to double click to register and at times it will behave as if I have the mouse button held down.

I haven't found any consistent way of fixing the problem. I have tried removing the keyboard, unplugging the mouse, replacing them with other ones and the problem is still there. And then it can mysteriously correct itself and behave normally.

Any ideas? Could this be a corrupt driver of some kind? What would be the best way of fixing it?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

Hi guys,

I have the same problem intermittently, maybe once every week or two. I have a Logitech Dinovo Laser kb & m and sometimes it acts like a key is sticking. It's not normally a problem - it will be a 't' or another letter that doesn't matter, but today it was the delete key and it started clearing out my emails in Outlook!

I pulled the batteries out of the keyboard and it was still deleting, so I don't think it's the keyboard physically sticking - does anyone have any suggestions?!?
