    Illustrator CS5 keys not working

    j2cervin

      I was just upgraded to CS5 (from cs4) at work and now my hotkeys do not function in the same way.  When I have something selected with the direct selection tool and the hit 'V' to switch to the selection tool, the drop down view menu gets selected instead (also happens when pushing any other button associated with the menubar.  Is there a reason why my hotkeys are defaulting to the menu bar rather than the tool it is assigned to?  I have checked the hot key preferences and confirmed that it is set for the correct tools.  I just cannot stand having to click the art board (and thus un-selecting my object) in order to use a hot key.
