|My collegue's computer has started acting very strangely - she will be in the middle of typing something in Word or Notepad or Dreamweaver or Excel, and suddenly each new letter will start appearing to the LEFT instead of the right of the preceeding letter.|
Sometimes this will happen mid-word, for example:
She types AUTUMN
It comes out as AUNMUT
(The AUT come out correctly, then after the T, the next U appears to the left of the T, then the M appears to the left of that U, and finally the N appears to the left of the M).
This happens in both upper- and lower-case, regardless of whether CAPS or SHIFT are being used at the time. As mentioned it often starts mid-word.
I've gone through accessibility options and they're all turned off. I've scanned with Spybot and MS Anti-Spyware and Nortons 2004 and they detected nothing. I've gone into regional and language options and everything is set to English (New Zealand), with the keyboard set to English (United States).
The key combination for switching languages is ALT+SHIFT (a combination my workmate never presses).
This problem seemingly started one day out of nowhere, even though my collegue has had her computer, and it's worked fine, for over a year.
Can anyone help?
