ME stops keyboard working

Hi I have been using ME for some years now. Last week macros that I use a lot started to work incorrectly and then stopped the keyboard from working at all. It also makes the mouse clicks odd. Rclicking on an icon brings up the properties window. I have done all the usual - rebooting, reinstalling - to no avail. Any ideas?

I have a few ideas that might fix this.

 

1. Did you edit the macro to hold down certain keys? (Altdown, ctrl down)

This might cause your keyboard to freeze if those got permently stuck, if this code is in the script putting the corresponding "up" key would fix it

2. You can try to restore the keyboard hooks with macro express

In the main screen menu: Tools--> restore keyboard hooks

3. My last idea has to do with the macro hitting a function key such as Scroll Lock/SysRq/Pause.

I am not sure which key but one of them can lock a keyboard up, I am pretty sure scroll lock because it locks all scrolling techniques.

What can I say - this macro has worked for years and I have no memory of adding any altu and d edits - but that was the answer!

 

Thank you
