Hello all!

I have this really ODD problem.

Sometimes, and without a good reason, my Pad/Mouse stop to do the 2-left-click selection on texts, or right click. The keyboard from the other hand, if I press ANY key (even the arrows, or the INS, or any other letter like numbers and SPACE) it will popup the letter "b". Yes, the b will pop no matter what I 'll do.

So I thought to check the Synaptics/Microsoft Mouse driver/properties program and the only problem that occured is a faulty (?) main.cpl file. After googling that I realised that it would do no harm to my mouse, since its the Synaptics which alerts me about that. And I read in forums that the device should work properly, only I wouldnt be able to make any mods in my Synaptics settings.

The problem disappeared for a week or so, but now it's here again and it's alive O.o

Many of you would roll on the floor laughing with that, but I have NO IDEA how should I google a fix for that :thumbsup:

I scanned with Lavasoft Ad-aware, Spybot and Malware and nothing found. Also I use PC tools firewall and nothing popped up asking permissions...

Help plz :flowers: Thank you :trumpet:

Since you ran all of the usual scans & found nothing I suggest going to the Device Manager , uninstall the keyboard, restart the unit & let the keyboard reinstall.
You might want to do the mouse/pad .

If that doesn't fix it I would suspect device failure.
