Ctrl+V, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X disabled, but Shift+Del/Ins & Ctrl+F not?

As the title suggests, it was one day impossible to cut, copy and paste in Windows XP across apps using Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V and to use left-Ctrl+PgUp/PgDn to move around tabs in SeaMonkey. Shift+Del, Ctrl+Ins and Shift+Ins worked, so did Ctrl+F, Ctrl+Q and a few other keyboard shortcuts.

The keyboard was Logitech Internet Pro Keyboard (iTouch Pro or somesuch).

I did do my standard run through tech forums (even a keyboard driver change) and scans with software (Spybot Search & Destroy didn't find anything). MBAM found a few things, I deleted them (the scan log of this well below).

LATER it turned out that the non-standard www button on the keyboard was STUCK. I had it moved to normal position and then using the Ctrl+... keys worked like a charm, even after a restart. Trouble was that I failed to test if the Ctrl+ keys also worked after the MBAM scan and correction.
