    I was using a different keyboard, and in order to use the Function keys I also had to press a special key that looked like a magic wand. Now I have the following behavior with my mouse and keyboard. If I am in Windowx XP (but not in a program such as Excel or Word), and I press the right mouse button, instead of getting the usual drop-down menu the computer starts to run the installer for Counter Spy, I program that I do have and use. I have to press Cancel a couple of times to end this, and then I get the usual drop-down menu. Same thing with the Delete key. If, for example, I am in Windows Explorer and want to delete a file or folder and I press the delete key, I get exactly the same reaction.

    Any ideas on how I can restore normal mouse and keyboard behavior?

    What happens if you uninstall and reinstall CounterSpy?

    the problem seems to be resolved. I was hesitant to do this, as I once had a system where the kbd and mouse both refused to work, even in safe mode. I had to use a restore point and perform the entire procedure by hand. Not fun. But here, it was do or die, so I did. Thanks.
