Hi, I have had a simple M310 mouse for about a month and a K800 illuminated wireless keyboard for a couple of days. I have SetPoint and FlowScroll installed and I'm using Windows 7 x64. I switched the mouse over to use the same Unified Receiver as the keyboard.
Last night, things suddenly started going crazy. For example, when I clicked on a program icon, like Firefox, it would load zillions of instances (several dozen at least) within a fraction of a second. I tried to shutdown & restart, but using my mouse to shutdown it strangely would cause programs like Windows Help to load instead. Pretty much anything I tried to click on would cause something unexpected to happen. Turning off the mouse and using solely the keyboard didn't help.
I eventually had to hold the power button on my PC to turn it off and then on again. That seemed to fix things.
I've never seen this kind of glitch before in all these years. I'm pretty sure it's not a virus as I have extremely good anti-virus software & firewall (Microsoft Security Essentials & Online Armor).
Could this glitch be related to my new keyboard or the unifying receiver?

This problem is happening again!
It's not just Firefox that opens zillions of instances. Other programs like Calculator do it to.
I'm able to reproduce the bug rather easily. When I switch the keyboard off, the bug stops. Then when I switch the keyboard on again, the bug is reproducible.
Since I just got this keyboard a couple days ago the problem is clearly related to the keyboard or the Unifying receiver.
Is it time to RMA this stuff?
Or just get a refund?
As I'm typing this the keyboard is inserting enter key
strokes, causing new lines to appear randomly.
This is totally unacceptable!

Looks like a bad keyboard and time for a refund.
I unpaired the mouse from the unifiying receiver and the keyboard is still injecting Enter keystrokes randomly.

Change your mouse and format your computer after that.
