after i restarted my win7 desktop this morning, for about 10 seconds, the c & v keys did not work. This was about 2 minutes into boot time. I only had 10 seconds to try but it seemed all other keys were working correctly

Before I try out things like combofix, has anybody seen something like this and could it be a potential keylogger? I'm always extra careful about visiting malicious websites but wanted to ask here

Hi rotade,

Please note the below which is in the AII forum:

When posting your problem, do not run and post a ComboFix log. ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer. Any posts containing CF Logs will be ignored.

To receive help, you should instead provide a detailed description of your problem, detailed word-for-word error messages that you are receiving, screenshots of strange behaviour, and your operating system. This information is much more useful to our helpers than a ComboFix log.

the c & v keys did not work.

This is probably a temporary glitch.

If it continues try disconnecting your keyboard, turn off the computer, then reconnect the keyboard.

Regards, dev00790
