Angry Keys will not repeat!!
I am having an issue that would seem easy to fix but it's not. On one of my user accounts, keys will not repeat even if you hit the key multiple times.. None of the other accounts on this machine have this problem.

I have tried changing everything in the keyboard portion of the control panel and nothing helps. I have installed the newest driver. When on the internet, everytime you hit a key the pages flashes like it is reloading. On Word, you can not type the same letter twice in a row. Someone, Help!

I have a Dell Dimension 4400. Keyboard is a dell enhanced QuietKey PS2 with delltouch. I am running XP home.

If all the other users work fine, I would discount it being a hardware problem, sounds like that user may have something loaded thats running in the background and is effecting your keystrokes.

Thanks for your help. I found the offenending software issue. It was something called Filterkeys in the accessibility options.
