Some time ago I noticed that all the special keys (media controls, IE, mail, calculator as well as Internet hot keys etc.) on the Natural Keyboard Pro are not working when and only when IE8 is running (foreground as well as background/task bar). This occurs with IntelliType Pro v5.50 as well as with the latest v7.1. The problem occurs in IE itself as well as any other program and the OS itself as long as IE is running. If IE is not running, the special keys are working as they should. This issue has occurred only a little while ago (I cannot say exactly when), and I supsect that some recent Microsoft update might be the culprit. Until a few weeks ago, this problem was not present. I would be grateful for help and a solution.
