    So I often use Ctrl + C, Ctrl + V, and Ctrl + x for various things. Randomly, the binding for paste, Ctrl V, stopped working. After a little experimenting, I found out it had switched to Ctrl + Shift + V. After a quick google search, I found out a possible solution was uninstalling you keyboard. I tried that, it didn't work. Any solutions? Because it is really annoying.

    Have you installed any key remapping programs such as Auto Hotkeys? Also look in the registery here HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout and you have a value or key named Scancode Map, delete "Scancode Map" and reboot that should get of the remapping.
