MS Windows XP SP3 with IE 8 Keyboard Issues

    I am running a Windows XP w/SP3 workstation utilizing IE8. It is all
    service packed to current configuration. I have an issue when you type
    the address in IE 8 that the first character is always double typed. In
    addition when typing one character another is actually printed on screen
    both in IE 8 and in chat programs. When the screen saver comes on or in
    Remote Desktop and trying to type a password after a period of time the
    keyboard strokes are not what characters I am typing, it starts from the
    top row of the keyboard and progress down the line.

    Has anyone seen this issue as I cannot find any information when
    searching and if so a solution?

    Thanks in advance,

    Charles

    This is not an XP issue. It's a keyboard issue, especially if it's a
    Logitech keyboard.

    To confirm if this is truly a hardware problem, you need to open
    Notepad and check to see if the same problem occurs. If it does not,
    you need to try to use the IE8 with No Addons.

    The Keyboard is the built in one on my Dell D620 portable as well as the
    external one a Microsoft Keyboard. I also tried a second image I have
    for this portable on a different hard drive and the problem does not
    occur with that build.

    I will try IE8 with no ad-dons. The bigger issue is when the screen
    saver is on and it won't unlock due to the incorrect keystrokes, even
    when IE8 is shutdown.

    Thanks,

    Charles

    In what sequence was SP3 / IE 8 installed? It should be noted that if
    SP3 is installed after IE8, you will not be able to remove IE8 without
    first removing SP3.

    sp3 was installed before IE 8.
