Hi, Some very strange things happening with my mac keyboard and mouse. Mac Pro (mid 2010), 10.13.3 (updated from 10.12.6 yesterday)

I have nothing wifi or bluetooth and they are always off. My keyboard and mouse are a year old.

For the past 3 weeks my keyboard stops working after about 30 mins. First thing to stop is the ability to use short cuts for cut, paste, undo etc. then i can't type anything at all. at the same time when i click my mouse in a text field nothing happens. if i click on a program icon instead of opening the program it opens the programs location in finder. all i can then do is force quit all programs and shut down.

i have tried resetting pram, smc, different usb ports etc. i have run a full test for malware using kapersky. nothing has helped so far.

Has anyone had the same issue before or have any ideas to help?
