    Delete key not working

    A co-worker has this problem on a Windows 98 machine: In Word 2000, if you select a word and then hit delete, nothing happens. If you hit backspace, nothing happens. But if you hit backspace again, then the highlighted word will delete. If you don't highlight a word first, the delete key works normally to delete one character at a time.

    The same behavior occurs with the DEL key and the ./DEL key on the numeric keypad (with NUM LOCK off); therefore it's not a keyboard problem.

    This does not occur in any other program on that machine.

    We tried a complete re-install of Office 2000, and the problem remains.

    Any one have any thoughts on this? Thanks.
