Slow Response By Keyboard

This may seem a strange problem, but it is most annoying.

When I type anything...in Google, on this forum, in fact anywhere, instead of words appearing immediately, there is a delay and it is driving me potty.

I have a Wireless keyboard and Mouse, but this problem is only recent and I cannot think why it has happened.

Has anyone any ideas on how to solve it?

Check your drivers for both mouse and keyboard.

Check for Viruses/Spyware.

I did an A Squared scan...1 item of malware within my new tool called System Mechanic....then I did a scan with my newly installed AV Kapersky. It came up with three items requiring a password for scanning:

They were in C drive archives:

C:\ ...arrow1.bmp

C:\... arrow2.bmp

C:\bck1.bmp

As I do not know what these are, I am very suspicious of them.

Any clues?

click here might work.

I should have said, I use Mozilla Firefox and XP2 Home with SP2.


That tool seems to be for IE....so if I download it in Mozilla, I guess I could not use it?

Usually indicates that the batteries need replacing, check your keyboard software to see if it has a utility that indicates battery strength.

The two things that occur to me are batteries running low or something such as spyware slowing the processor up. Have tried downloading and scanning with adaware? click here
