Win XP double-click opens properties

By jdamico ·
Hi, all! One user is having issue on two workstations; basically it is acting as though the Alt key is being pressed. Double-clicking on desktop icons opens the Properties box with the Shortcut tab selected. Can right-click and choose Open, but cannot type in any program because again it is acting as though the Alt key is being pressed, i.e., typing F brings up the File menu. I have checked StickyKeys, those are not turned on (turning them on and off does not correct the issue). Can log on to these workstations as another user without a problem, and can log on as this user and at first there is no problem, but user states suddenly it will start happening. My first thought was that a keystroke combo was doing this but I have searched MS, this forum and another and have not found any resolution. Does have updated Symantec Corporate and no viruses found. Will clean out spyware but after that I am at a loss. Any help, as always, is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
