All of a sudden out of nowhere, my touchpad buttons and alphabetic keys stop responding; I could still alt-tab between programs and go into task manager but the only way to exit the latter was with the ESC button. Shortly followed by that, my Windows 7 scheme changed to basic.
After 2 minutes, my alphabetic keys and right mouse button started responding again. My left mouse button still wasn't responding, even the tap to click function which I know I enabled, wasn't working. I didn't know if it was a virus but immediately disabled my WiFi just in case.
I restarted my laptop, and thank goodness everything was working again. I can't remember if the Windows 7 scheme changed back before I restarted or not but it is no longer basic.
So I'm not really sure what to think or make of all this; not sure if it was a virus, a program I was using, or something I accidentally enabled. Anyone know what this whole fiasco was all about? I'm really worried about it; not sure if I'd rather have it be a hardware or software problem if it was anything.
The specifics I can recall was that I was playing on an emulator (zsnes) and switched to Firefox to go to GameFAQs to look something up; can't remember if it started happening once I was on the site or if I switched back to the emulator.
