If your keyboard is wired, could be a loose connection...

No it it a logitech cordless keyboard and mouse.
I looked to see if it needs a driver update but thats not the case eithier.I have run through the trouble shooter too.

I have just tried a wired mouse from hubbys PC which I know is working fine, but it will not work on my PC

if you have a wired keyboard i would try that anyway, it may determine if its a communication error between keyboard and PC


scan your PC for spy/malware,

Hetti with reference to your last post it could well be spyware related...

Run the spyware/malware scans adaware,superantispyware and threatfire is also installed , they found some issues but it has made no difference to my not being able to use text,

mshtmler.dll could be related to this, either missing or corrupt

I have tried a wired keyboard/ and a mouse that came with keyboard as a set, but it does not solve the problem.

If it is spy/malware and my software cannot deal with it, is there something else I can use?
