I've been using MS Word and other Office applications for a while on my desktop, but recently Word has been acting weird. While it's running, certain keys will stop working; most recently, the c, v, and h keys. Even the on-screen keyboard's c, v, and h wouldn't do anything. However ctrl+c and ctrl+v still worked. And when I close Word, the keys return to normal. Although maybe unrelated, other times while running Word, if I click anywhere on the page, it highlights as though I'm holding shift. This also occurs other places like explorer as well (highlighting files instead of selecting them.) But when I close Word it seems to fix the problem.
Another strange occurrence that is likely entirely unrelated (but I'm putting here just in case):
The last time this happened, I restarted my computer. However, before it even got the windows loading screen, it would just go black and have a blinking cursor in the corner. I wasn't able to boot to safe mode or anything. I tried restarting several times, and just as I was about to post a message on here about it, it booted up just fine.
I've run Malwarebytes to see if there's anything awry on my system, but it hasn't turned up anything so far.
I recently got a new keyboard (Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000 v2.0). Could this possibly be the cause of at least part of it?
