I have Windows XP. A few days ago the control keys (Ctrl) stopped working, which is a minor inconvenience for some functions, and a catastrophe for others that don't seem to have a mouse equivalent. The keyboard has been checked; it is OK. I have checked for all the possible viruses that the forums say could cause it; the computer appears clean. I have restored (Restore) the settings back to a day when the keys were working. Suggestions about using redegit for resetting the code always break down at a point where the suggestions instruct one to enter a code at a place that does not exist. Oddly enough, I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Fn or Del+Alt+Fn, (I forget which at the moment, I would have to look it up), but it fixed it for two days, and then the keys stopped working again, and the solution that worked before did not work the second time. Hence, two questions:
(a) any other suggestions?
are there any mouse equivalents to Ctrl+F, Ctrl+H, Ctrl+Alt+Del?
