typing - appears as CTRL key is stuck

By okhuntin ·
When working in any Office application suddenly it appears as if the CTRL key is stuck. Can't type anything and when you move arrows or cursor it highlights all text. No out of ordinary processes or virri. Only way to fix is to reboot.
Have replaced keyboard to no avail. Bosses'PC - IDEAS??

Check to see if "Sticky Keys" is enabled. It is fairly easy to hit Ctrl+Windows keys simultaneously keeping Control enabled until Windows key is pressed again.

You can find info about Sticky Keys in Start -> Help and Support. It is one of the Accessibility options.
