Re: find and replace problem

It might be a sticking state problem. If you're using the IntelliType
keyboard drivers, sometimes the Ctrl (as well as Alt, sometimes) key state
gets stuck (has nothing to do with hardware, but is an interaction between
the IntelliType drivers and IE7, so you're more likely to see the problem
when switching from IE7 to another application).

When this happens, pressing ordinary letters then has the same effect as the
Ctrl+ versions of those letters until the stuck state gets cleared (which
usually can be done by pressing/releasing Ctrl/Alt/Shift at the same time).

Re: find and replace problem

In addition to the answers Graham and Herb gave you, it could be that you're
trying to use the browse arrows (at the bottom of the vertical scroll bar)
for Next Page or Previous Page. If you've recently used the Find dialog,
then the action for those buttons is Find Next and Find Previous (you'll
note that the arrows are blue rather than black). You can restore their Next
Page/Previous Page function by clicking on the Select Browse Object button
between them and choosing Browse by Page.
