Good evening,

I have two Windows 7 machines, one PC and a laptop, both with the language set to US-International. Both have the same issue: after playing Eve for a while, the keyboard layout will get messed up, and special characters will show as something different. ? becomes =, : becomes some weird character I normally can't even find, : becomes , or some such, etcetera. A relog usually helps, but after a few minutes the problem may occur again. On the PC it happens occassionally; on the laptop, it happens each and every session.

I have searched around for a solution, but can't even find reports of pilots experiencing the same, let alone solutions :)

Any idea what might be going on?

I have had this occur once in the past, and it was due to a virus. Often this is the trite and easy answer people throw out when they really have no better idea, but in this case I would suggest (with good reason) that you update and run your AV.

Thanks Ranger, I'll have a look into that.. although it's a fresh Windows install with up to date AV, I can't completely rule out something like that.
