Hi Andy,

So this is a sign of things to come? I have had several clients over the
last weekend calling with problems with their keyboards and systems. Most
will not copy and paste and have specific keys on the keyboard that are non
responsive. Running anti-virus programs finds nothing. Spyware removers
also show nothing. I haven't had anyone call today with the problems that
you are experiencing but this may be a sign of things to come.

Regards, Tom
