    I need help!

    For some reason my '=/+' key has a problem. When I open internet explorer, it is as if the key is being held down. I have removed the key itself from my keyboard, and there is nothing physically causing the problem.

    I am currentley using the internet explorer in Limewire Pro, as the problem is not present here.

    It just makes it impossibe to enter any text.
    I have ran virus scans and malware scans, but they come up clean? Is this something really obvious, 'cos its driving me insane!

    Please help me

    I think that you should have posted this in the Hardware forum. In the mean time have you tried using some compressed air? I'm always surprised at how much stuff comes out of my key board when I use it from time to time.

    I have a similar problem except it's with the "e" key. The computer keeps typing it yet nothing happens when I press "e" myself. It's not a stuck key. I think it's a rootkit and I can't find a way to get rid of it.

    Hi , this really interesting, as i have typed message, and sent
    them, only realizing on re-read that some letters were omitted.

    So, a good sweep with a vacuum cleaner sorts that out?

    Thanks, this really is a great site!!
