We have several computers at work and when my boss types on her computer (#1), another computer (#2) picks up all the text. It doesn't matter which program is running on computer #2, the internet could be running and whatever she types, pops up on the other computer. Every heard of this?

Are you using wireless keyboards?

Actually, computer #2 (where the text is appearing) is a wired keyboard ASUS KB2621.
The wireless keyboard is Logitec model #S520.

If you use a wired keyboard on Computer #1 does the problem stop?

We just hooked up a wired keyboard to computer #1 and so far it's stopped. We had to restart the computer before the keyboard would work and so far so good. Finger's crossed!
If it does it again I'll post another message. Thanks!

One more thing that I forgot to mention/ask. Doesn't the computer that's receiving the text have to have a usb receiver?

As far as I know it does need a USB receiver.

I think it's fixed now. Computer #1 is currently using a wireless keyboard that used to belong to computer #2. Computer #2 has a receiver which is a mouse/keyboard combo but that computer was only using the wireless for the mouse. We think the receiver that's still plugged in to #2 was still receiving data from the keyboard.
Anyway, we believe it's fixed.
Thanks everyone!!!
