    Hi everyone, i'm new and desperate for help :(

    I'm using Windows XP SP2 and have a real problem with the tilde/hash key; everytime i press this key it automatically shuts down Window's :mad:

    I've uninstalled the keyboard a couple of times and have looked everywhere on the net for an answer but cannot find one. Has anybody else come across this problem - if so can you help me as i'm unable to use the in-game console for Morrowind or do any typing using this key until this problem is fixed.

    Many thanks.

    Reinstalling the keyboard won't do any good. Sounds like someone mapped a keyboard shortcut to shutdown the computer. How you would go about finding the keyboard shortcut that's causing you grief is beyond me, though.
