Old school - win3.1 & works: Erratic dat

By siliconad ·
User gets erratic responses in Works Spreadsheets, i.e. multiple cell selection when clicking on 1 cell or using arrow keys (behaves as if F8 was pressed and ESC won't cancel this). Also, Exit windows doesn't work (nothing happens - system continues running) I tried another keyboard (no help). Recently removed Stealth C boot virus on this and several similar machines. All others work fine. Thank you for any guidance.

Sounds like it is time to rebuild this one. The virus infection may have corrupted the program files.

Re-run latest virus checker and then re-istall the operating system as an upgrade. If you have the programs re-install Works also as an upgrade.

Sounds possible corruption of hardware drivers devices so above should fix it! Also run scandisk and defragment your hard drive.

I agree with the others as it could be a corrupt driver. However, I have seen BIOS and keyboard viruses run around with the Stealth C virus. Make sure you have a current anti-virus update. It also sounds like you may have simply a bad mouse or keyboard-- swap them out.
