Backspace/Space bar not working properly


M

When I double click and select a word, then press the backspace key, it
does not delete the word (or phrase, etc. that has been highlighted).
Some thing with the space bar. Delete still works, but I'd like to get
the backspace/space bar to work again. Any help you can offer would be
great.

Please email directly, in addition to the list:
(e-mail address removed).

Thanks,
Michele
