Windows 7: My Ctrl key function became a left mouse click

10 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional
My Ctrl key function became a left mouse click

For some reason, every time I press the ctrl key, the function becomes the left mouse button click. For example, when I hover the mouse on a icon and press ctrl, it opens the application. In game, when I press ctrl I fire the gun. I tried:

-tried different keyboard and mouse - both USB and ps/2
-reinstalled drivers
-virus and spyware and both clean

I don't know what to do right now but this isn't too big of an issue but it is pretty annoying when I try to play shooting games and try to crouch it fires all my ammo. Also one other thing is that I can't do ctrl+c copy because after i select something and press ctrl it clicks and deselects it.

Mysteriously, I have lost some functionality in my mouse - specifically the roller/clicker no longer lets me scroll, or any other funtion assigned to it. I very recently had Norton remove about 10 viruses - got infected by all ten at, by the way - I had always assumed that site to be...

I seem to remember that there was a setting that I could change to prevent a drop-down from appearing whenever I clicked on an icon. Now I am presented with a drop-down that has "OPEN' as it's top item. Please tell me where the setting is.
