Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work

Windows Keyboard Shortcuts have gone crazy on my Inspiron6000.

Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work. After awhile, the keyboard not longer responds either. Striking the "F" key reacts like a Ctrl+F "Find" feature. I have to reboot to use the keyboard.

Thought we might have caught some sort of virus, but McAfee says it's clean. I tried a system restore to an earlier saved date without any luck. Next I did a Dell PC Restore by Symantec (F11) and Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V are still screwed up Ran McAfee again to no avail.

Anyone have an idea what can be done? Please help!

Hi nomar05...

Smells like corrupt drivers to me...

Check on the Dell Support site and see if there are updated keyboard and touchpad drivers available for your machine. Just select your make and model from the drop-down menus on the right side of the page.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions. If anything is found while running the applications suggested there, post back to this thread and we'll look a little deeper. Let's just make sure there's nothing malicious on there first.
