Hello lloyders88. Welcome to the forum.

Not a lot of information about the device on that website. So it is seat of the pants time.

I suspect a driver conflict - the flirc drivers and the input devices drivers are not playing nice together.
A device driver normally consists of multiple single files. Sometimes the new device will replace a single shared driver file that is more to it's liking, but not to the other devices that share that file.

You can try and reinstall the mouse and keyboard to see if when they reinstall they will replace the buggy file.
Assuming you have a standard keyboard and mouse - just go into Device manager and "uninstall" the mouse and keyboard listed there. Then restart the computer. The mouse and keyboard drivers will be reinstalled on the next startup.
