VMWare: When using VPN my keyboard pretends I'm crazy
March 28, 2014 3:04 AM Subscribe
New laptop, windows 8.1. No issues. Except when I use my company's VPN through VMWare (Windows 7). Unpredictably, but often, it acts like I'm pressing the C button. But I'm not!

In a Word or Excel doc, I see a bunch of c's, in other applications it does whatever it would do if the C was pressed intentionally. I can stop it by pressing C. A few minutes later, it will happen again.
Note: this does NOT happen when I use my laptop for personal stuff, without the VPN. So I don't think somethings actually wrong with the key or the wiring of the keyboard. The laptop is a Toshiba.
