Win XP Pro, Firefox, Thunderbird.
Lats night my screensaver wasn’t kicking in.
Clicking once on a desktop item caused it to remain highlighted until I clicked it again.
Open a folder and click on something, ditto. Click on something else and they were both highlighted. You had to manually unselect it.
Select a subfolder and it opened in a new window, which my comp is set not to do.
I opened an excel file, but was unable to select or modify any given cell.
Clicking on a link, at any site, caused it to open in a new tab. I couldn’t get back to the previous tab except by closing the new one.
I couldn’t enter text into any field on any site, eg to post a question here. The cursor just didn’t want to be there.
I could access mail and hit reply, but couldn’t type anything into the new message.
ctrl/alt/del did nothing. No way to see what else was running. I restarted a couple of times by hitting the button, to no avail.
I haven’t changed any settings at all, and the mouse works fine in my laptop. I disconnected the keyboard too, in case it’s sending some weird signal, but nothing changed.
Tried to navigate to system restore via the help and support thingy, but the link did nothing. (Didn’t think to try and get there through the programs list, d’oh!)
And tonight it’s fine. What’s going/gone on?
Is Gus fiddling with things again?
