Ctrl key and alt key, have you tried that combination?

Did you check your display settings to see if possibly your rotation got changed?
Right click desktop, properties, settings, advanced, and see if you have a rotation option. Some video card support this and others don't. pahoo31

Are the movements backwords too, maybe an upsidedown monitor, when i was at school last year, the kids before us in the computer class used to turn the montiors upsidedown they had flatscreen ones... and they could turn.

I seem to recall a small program that could be detected as a virus that turned the display upside down, and disabled rotation settings at the same time.

Just recalled who had the write up: http://www.symantec.com/security_response/...-99&tabid=1

you should be able to remove this with an online scanner, such as trend micro house call

Yes I have gone via properties to see if the rotation option is set right and also tried rotating the display using this option, no change.

I tried search for all joke.flip files and found none, ran my AVG virus protection also no luck. Check for windows updates and my system is updated as I have auto update on.

Did you run the housecall scan? no anti virus can detect everything.

Right click
go to "Properties"

click on "Advanced"
go to "graphics driver"
click on "graphics properties"
click on "rotation"
