CTRL keys not working

  Widows Son 00:25 10 Jun 2004

Both CTRL keys on my keyboard have stopped working - both at the same time which would lead me to believe its not a keyboard fault. I'm running XP home which is up to date. Could this be a virus? apart from the CTRL keys everthing seems fine.

can you elaborate on this slightly?

when did they work? does system restore if using win xp or win me fix it?

Worked yesterday I think... I haven't installed anything new so I'd not considered using restore - I suppose its worth a try though. I've just updated Norton & am currently running a full scan. I'll try a restore after that

A full scan nas been done with Norton Antivirus and I've restored to about a week ago when everything was working fine

Any suggestions would be very welcome

Can you borrow another keyboard to test?

It's the keyboard - I borrowed one and it works fine. Strange that both left & right CTRL button failed at the same time but there you go.

Thanks for all your help
