Is your receiver going through a USB hub, or plugged directly into a rear port?
It's a Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard (IntelliType Pro) and Mouse (IntelliPoint), which is an older version, Explorer 2.0 I believe. And the receiver plugs straight into the PC. I'm thinking that if the keyboard and mouse WERE Bluetooth, they might be designed to avoid this kind of interference but since they are fairly old fashioned, they might not be well insulated for this particular RFI.
