Weird one this,
my wife is running a brand new computer with Windows 8.1 installed.
One of her app's given to her by her employer (on her intranet) which collects financial information from customers has a "Confirm" button. Occasionally (once or twice a day) when she clicks it immediately the windows "run" box (Win-R) pops up but the only letter the keyboard now generates is "r". I assume that the run box opens because of the "r".
So now if she goes to any open app/window and types she gets "rrrrr" etc.
So far the only solution seems to be to reboot - however she gets time docked off her pay if this happens, so it is not merely an inconvienience.
My only thought was that somehow some kind of sticky key sequence has been initiated, or that a key was stuck down on the keyboard (maybe ALT) - but this is not the cause.
Any thoughts as to what might be causing this and/or how to escape from the situation without a reboot?
