    My computer seems to freeze right when I press a button on my keyboard.
    It works fine, and for a long time, but if I press on the button on the keyboard, it looks like it freezes. When I try to log on to AIM, and it freezes, but the cursor is still blinking so it's like it hasn't fully frozen.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks a ton,

    - Cafe`

    a - I bumped it because it was already at the bottom of the page.

    b - What else am I supposed to say? All I know is that right when I press a button on my keyboard it freezes.

    You don't give the Windows Version, so help is limited. That is what is meant by details.
    Without as much detail as possible, many simply skip over the problem so it will drop down the list.

    Other details are the type of PC (processor speed, RAM) and history (has it always done this, when did it start), have you run checks for spyware etc, do you run an antivirus program?

    If XP, run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and see what process is using the CPU to cause this. (Processes tab, click on CPU to order max to min or min to max)
