    Disabled DELETE key in win 8.1


    I am using Lenovo Z400 previously pre installed win Win8. In an unknown reason the mouse clicks (left/right) suddenly began to start deleting whatever you point and click.

    Believing it was a virus, I fresh installed a Win 8.1. However, the mouse click errors still there. It still deletes all files that you point and click, not only once but multiple times. I also noticed that it seems the mouse click robbed the function of the keyboard's DELETE key function. It was already disabled.

    Tried to updated mouse driver Logitech M235 but nothing happened.

    I have tried some instructions from the microsoft support and nothing happened. The mouse/ DELETE function error still persist.

    Please help.

    Go into the extra settings for the mouse. You can turn off the extra features that may be causing this. Of course it could just be that your keyboard is going wonky. The Delete key should not be disabled. I am betting either the keyboard is having issues, or the mouse is the problem not the driver.
