The "undo" function occurs randomly on various MS products

    The "undo" function occurs randomly while I am using any SW application, like
    MS Word, Excel, Outlook, IE, etc. I am running XP Pro, SP3 and am current
    with all updates for XP and Office 2007 on a Dell D420 laptop. I have run
    virus scans, RegCure, and Adware. In fact it happened twice while typing in
    this message as this is the third time I typed in this last sentence. Any
    help is greatly apreciated.

    Ctrl+Z is undo, perhaps there is a keyboard hardware problem?

    I have a wireless keyboard attached to the laptop. I toggled that keyboard
    and the laptop's and the key's seemed fine. The problem occurs when the
    laptop is docked or not docked.

    - Does it happen in Safe Mode too?
    - Have you considered that RegCure (a registry cleaner) could have caused
    this? Many people regard registry cleaners as useless at best and damaging
    at worst.
    - If it is a recent problem, have you tried System Restore?

    Another thought: Does it happen in notepad or wordpad?

    Well, it just happened while I typed my reply to you. The two sentences that
    I was typind got erased. No, I have not tried safe mode and have not done a
    system restore, although, I am getting close to that option. I will try
    notepad, but since it happened here, I think it can happen anywhere. Thanks
    for helping....

    It's like a ctrl-z that happens randomly no matter what application is
    running. Even while typing in this reply box it could happen.

    1) Change batteries in keyboard.
    2) Change to a wired keyboard
    3) This assumes you're not using a touchpad, where it's darned easy to
    erase things you've typed if you don't have the controls tweaked right.

    Did you see if the problem goes away if you disable the laptop's touchpad?
    Your heels coming close or touching the pad could be generating random
    keystrokes. Some laptops have a button along their frame to enable/disable
    the touchpad.

    The author of the thread you quote appears to think that he invoked "undo"
    but he most probably hit Ctrl+A (=select all) instead of Shift+A, then some
    other letter, thus causing his text to disappear. You are probably subject
    to the same phenomenon. In some applications (e.g. MS Word), Ctrl+Z would
    actually fix the wrong keystroke. Other applications (e.g. Outlook) are less
    forgiving unless you press Ctrl+Z immediately.

    Your heels coming close or touching the pad could be generating random
    keystrokes. Some laptops have a button along their frame to enable/disable
    the touchpad.

    Me too. Any solution?

    I am having the same problem with a Dell D620 laptop using its keyboard or docked to an external keyboard.

    In fact the "undo" occurred several times while I was typing this message in Firefox.

    Win XP, Office 2007, Firefox.

    The "undo" function occurs randomly while I am using any SW application, like
    MS Word, Excel, Outlook, IE, etc. I am running XP Pro, SP3 and am current
    with all updates for XP and Office 2007 on a Dell D420 laptop. I have run
    virus scans, RegCure, and Adware. In fact it happened twice while typing in
    this message as this is the third time I typed in this last sentence. Any
    help is greatly apreciated.
