    Keyboard ghosting


    recently I connect one of the friends usb and I think it contains virus.
    Now I cant press both w and space at once and also s and q. It just happened suddently and not becuz of the keyboard. Is there any softwares that scans for such keyboard error. Help how to fix it ?

    It could be a defective keyboard. Try another keyboard and see if you have the same problem.

    A small thing to try. Uninstall it's driver from Device manager, reboot and let it install driver again.

    It should reinstall by itself.

    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center


    A long shot, but ---

    sfc /scannow

    &

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    & sfc /scannow AGAIN, all in administrator CMD prompts MIGHT help.

    It won't hurt anything.
