Windows 7: CTRL SHIFT Arrow (left or right) not working

CTRL SHIFT Arrow (left or right) not working

Hello, I'm having troubles with the keyboard. Several combinations are not working anymore. Besides the mentioned combination also CTRL ALT DELETE (and it's equivalent in a virtual client: CTRL ALT END) stopped working.

I am not aware of a recent change to the system or the moment this problem occured. Quite honest, I don't have a clue where to look. So all the help available is very much appreciated.

Thank you all.

Here is a good thread from Microsoft Answers that has a few different fixes that have worked for people. May not be your problem but try a few and see if it helps. Ctrl+Shift+Arrow shortcut doesn't seem to work - Microsoft Answers

Try using a keyboard that is known to work AND known to be able to perform the shortcut you want.
