Mouse Keys Sticky Keys Startup Issue


I hope this is the right place to ask this, it seems the most appropriate to me. I use mousekeys and stickykeys to improve my performance in a game involving tons of clicking. As correctly stated in 'ease of access center > make the keyboard easier to use' 'when you select these settings, they will automatically start each time you log on'.

This exactly is my problem, once mousekeys and/or stickykeys have been enabled, they keep returning when i log on windows, even if i turned them off before shutting down. I tried using regedit and changing the values to the default ones but this does nothing, it only changes things like the speed settings back to default. Reboot and they're back. Is it possible to make it so that mousekeys and stickykeys do not start on startup. I would like them off by default without, of course, having to completely remove them from my computer.

Keyboard Keys Malfunction

I'm having alot of problems when i have to type something on my new laptop computer. It's windows 7. I didn't have this problem before, so i don't know if it's because of the system. When i try to use specific punctuation i get another character. This only happens in certain programs, such as microsoft works word processor, if i use a search engine, yahoo answers, and a few other places. For example, when i press shift + ?, In certain programs i get ‰.

If i want to use a question mark i have to open another program, type the question mark copy, and paste it. That's alot of damn work to ask a proper question. If i type shift + @, i get ", shift + #, i get /, shift + ^, i get ?, Shift + {, i get ^, shift + } i get ", shift + i get<, etc, etc, etc, etc. I need this resolved. It either makes my business letters look unprofessional because of the typos, or it takes me longer than necessary to type.

Some Keyboard Keys Not Working

Most keys work, but a few don't; the space-bar only works after i press it around three or four time.

'm'  key  types 'ym'
'v' key  types 'tv'
'y' key types 'ym'
'. ' only works after i  press  it thre or  four  times.
Left shift key doesn't  appear  to work.

Dell support won't help because i'm running windows 7 rtm. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The keyboard was working for a while after i did a fresh install of windows 7, but stopped working for some reason. I don't recall making any changes prior to this issue.

System:dell mini1010
Bios: a05
Windows 7 rtm with all windows updates installed.

Activation / Product Keys

I have just purchased from ebay a "legal copy" of windows 7 sealed and in a box with the activation code and all the relevant paperwork, however it has not been recognized by microsoft and the site tells me the activation code has been blocked by microsoft, when i enter the product key i get options for contacting microsoft or buying a new product code, how can people get away with selling what appears to be a legal copy yet microsoft doesn't recognize the key, looks like i'm going to out of pocket on this one !

Shortcut Keys Not Working

Ctrl + a and ctrl + d stopped working in the mail program to select all and delete selected emails. These functions work if accessed through edit on the toolbar but not if want to use the shortcut keys.
Also, backspace key is not functioning on one particular website i access. The backspace arrow in upper left corner functions properly but not the backspace key.

This makes browsing very slow and this is a shopping site that you want to be able to browse back and forth easily from a product to it's description and back to the next product. Oddly enough, this is the only site i have this problem with so i thought the problem was on their end, except my problem with the other shortcut keys makes me suspect. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Anytime Upgrade And Keys

So i managed to upgrade from xp and kept trying to activate my key through anytime upgrade to no avail until i went into the system directory and used the "activate windows" prompt. If i had, say, a windows 7 ultimate key, and entered it into the anytime upgrade prompt, would that automatically upgrade me or would i need to purchase it exclusively as an anytime upgrade issued key? I am still confused about this, as that anytime upgrade made installation a whole lot harder than it had to be

Arrow Keys In Explorer

When in windows explorer (and some other programs), i tend to use the arrow keys to move between folders and directories. The only problem with this is the fact that even once a folder or directory is highlighted, it's contents are not displayed in the right pane until you press enter. If i remember correctly, this is not the way it was in windows xp, and i find it very frustrating to need to press enter every time i move to a different folder, and sometimes confusing to have one folder highlighted while the contents of another folder are displayed. What is the reason for this difference, and is there any kind of workaround or fix?

Change Quick Keys On Keyboard

Is it possible to change the "quick keys" on my keyboard with windows 7? I'm not sure if the title describes what i'm asking for correctly, but here's what i'm wondering. I have a multimedia keyboard, with buttons at the top for my home page, forward, back, email, etc. Before wiping and upgrading my pc to windows 7 (which i love), i was able to set what these keys did. For example, i have a shareware calculator program, i'd like it to run when i hit the calculator button, instead the windows 7 calc comes up. Anyone have any ideas for this?

Keyboard Keys Issue In Word

My keyboard goes stupid sometimes. When i strike a key i get the entire keyboard left to right top to bottom, one key at a time for instance this is what i get in word
1234567890-=qwertyuiop[]asdfghjkl;''zxcvbnm, . /-+. But if i start ie8 the problem goes away, as long as ie8 is open. If i toggle between word and ie8 all is well. If i close ie8 the problem returns. If i reboot all is well until it goes stupid whenever it feels like it. I checked device manager, driver, all is good. Changed keyboard but still happens.

Shortcut Keys Changing Keyboard Language

Concerning short cut keys (ctrl + shift) changing keyboard language setting and changing the short cut key. For all the windows versions i worked with there is one short cut key set which has annoyed the out of me. Being ctrl + shift. Why? Simply because it changes the language setting of my keyboard from the used (us/international ) to the near non-existent (dutch ) and of course back if i accidentally hit it again.

In the netherlands, us/international is the standard keyboard format, yet all the version of windows have supplied us with a dutch keyboard setting (which is totally different, and jumbles up you key bindings big time)! This dutch keyboard however does not exist or is extremely rare, and it's a mystery to me why it is still existent.

To change the keyboard settings however there is the above mentioned short-cut combo (ctrl+shift) which is easy to hit accidentally. I want to get rid of the short cut key combination to prevent the constant frustration of discovering i accidentally changed the settings.

Is that possible? If so, how?

Fn Keys On Win 7 And Vga With Dual Monitor

Okay so i just installed windows 7 last night and was looking forward to plugging in my laptop (hp latitude d600) into my 32" lcd in my room via a vga cable. Which worked on my previous os of windows xp. However it is now not working when i plug the cables in and i can't find where to tell the computer to use the vga link. On top of all that i tried using fn f8 to solve that problem to make it go crt/lcd but my fn keys are now not functioning. I googled it and used the hotfix they provided but that also did not work. Ideas?

Keep Receiving Prompt For Backing Up Encryption Keys

Backup your file encryption keys my windows 7 ultimate laptop is prompting me to backup my file encryption keys. When i run "cipher /u /n" from a run as admin command line, the result is "the system cannot find the file specified"

Why would i be being prompted out of the blue to backup encryption keys?

( In the tray, there is a "solve pc issues" flag. It says to schedule a system backup. )

( Also, i downloaded the source code of a web programming book. After that download the encrypt your keys prompt started. Those folders and files display in green text in windows explorer. Normally with zip files i copy them to another directory to unzip em. That does not happen with these files. Are these green files encrypted somehow?

Touchpad Keys Do Not Work When Pc Waking Up From Sleeping Mode

The keys (including touchpad) of the hp notebook with windows 7 do not work when pc waking up from the "sleeping mode". If you plug in the external mouse in the usb port, cursor moves.

1 - keys of the pc ( including the touchpad) stop responding when notebook wakes up from any mode. If you just connect external mouse, the cursor start moving again over the screen. The problem disappears after the pc is switched off and then switched on i.e. After reloading the windows 7 operating system.

2 - this problem exists from the day one when the operating system was installed.

3 - internal win7 diagnostic system doesn't show, as far as i understand, any missing driver.

Please explain the reason and the detailed algorithm to fix this problem.

Keyboard Keys Don't Work Or Get Suck

I'm having problems when i try to play a game that requires the keyboard. Either the keys don't work or they get stuck. For instance, if i want the character to go right, it won't stop going right (same with going left or jumping, etc. ). It doesn't seem to be the computer itself and it doesn't matter if i use the w, a, s, d keys the space bar or the number pad. I have a dell laptop with windows vista.

How To Use Sticky Notes From Vista ?

While i think the sticky notes in windows 7 are 'cute', they're not nearly as functional as the sticky notes in vista were. For instance, i have over 1800 sticky notes on my vista machine that i keep because they are auto time and date stamped. I write directly onto the notes using my tablet, and keep them instead of keeping a pad and pen at my desk. Now, however, i open sticky notes and 1) nothing is date stamped and 2) i can't keep 1800 notes on my desktop visible at all times.

Is there some way to install the "old" sticky notes (the one where you could even record a verbal note or write on it with a pen) from windows vista onto windows 7?

Sticky Note Sticking Too Well

I pressed the little x button to delete the sticky note on my desktop i had used, but it would not go. I right clicked the icon on the task bar and pressed 'close window' but nothing happened. I have done the close down, restart, cclean but just cannot shift it (the writing went and it is now blank). I went into start, right clicked and got rid of it there but the little horror won't leave my desktop. I don't know if i have deleted the program or not, cannot find it anywhere, but is there anyone that can please help me to remove it from the desktop.

Sticky Note Can't Be Deleted

I have a particular sticky note that seems to be stuck somewhere on my laptop which is running windows 7 home premium 64 bit edition. I can create new notes, delete all other existing notes, etc. , But this one particular note can't be opened or deleted. When i select it from a search box, a new blank note opens (rather than opening that note). A screen shot of what i mean can be viewed at http://www.Zumodrive.com/share/6xrwotnmmz. Note i crossed out the names in the memo title for anonymity reasons, but you'll see the note is stuck there from july 8th, and you'll note a new blank note which opens if i click it.

I hope i've adequately explained the problem i'm having with this screen shot. It's kind of a strange problem to describe in writing, particularly because i doubt that most people use a search box like this to view a list of their sticky notes, but rather probably just open the sticky notes to see all their notes at once. If i can provide any further details, please advise, and i'll be happy to do so. I'd greatly appreciate any assistance anyone can offer.

Mouse Scrolling Stuck With Wireless Mouse

I have a labtec wireless optical mouse for notebooks. It causes scrolling to involuntarily occur with sliders and drop-down boxes as long as the mouse is hovering over the item.
For example:

1) when i signed up to these forums and had to choose a country the mouse scrolled through the list right to the bottom without my intervention (other than selecting the drop-down box). Almost all drop down boxes tend to be effected regardless of what program it is in.

2) if i try to adjust the volume in the system tray the mouse raises the sound even while i am trying to lower it.

3) in certain programs the mouse will scroll through the page automatically. It does not do this with all programs. Chrome, ie, firefox, acrobat, notepad and many others are not affected.

4) i did not have these issues with xp at all, but i did when i used ubuntu (mouse would cycle through tabs and always cycle to the first box on the ubuntu taskbar. I had to alt-tab to change windows. )
 
5) when i first installed chrome the mouse would automatically scroll through the tabs to the first one even if all i did was hover over the tabs. I could could only properly select another tab if i clicked it and then moved the mouse from the tabs quickly. I did this which fixed the issue: "the document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior.

Win 7 Startup

I'm running a dell e521 which started life with vista. I upgraded months ago to windows 7. The upgrade went quite smooth. This past week i was performing a system restore to a previous date when during the process the computer rebooted which is normal. I got the dell logo, then the windows 7 start-up screen with the four little revolving lights. Then the computer progressed to the black screen with the cursor in the center and froze at that screen. I have been unable to get past this screen since. I tried rebooting with the windows 7 repair disc but with no success.

I have since bought and installed a new hard-drive and was able to extract most but not all of my files from my external hard-drive. I would like to know if there is a solution to fixing my old drive so that i can retrieve all of my data and perhaps use it as a second drive in my computer. Note; when this problem hard-drive is connected i can't get past this black screen so i cannot access my computer to find a fix.

Unmute On Startup

I purchased my laptop with vista on it, with an upgrade to 7 home premium when it was released. I've since installed, but now the system automatically turns the sound on at startup. It never had a problem with vista, and i didn't mind that the very first time i booted into 7

This is particularly annoying when i'm in class and someone sends me a message and the whole class think's i'm talking away. I've had more dirty looks from instructors in the past few months than i can remember.

I know i can go through and disable all the sounds, and switch between sound schemes, but i would rather not bother going through that path 2-3 times a day. How do i get my sound settings to stay where i put them?

No Startup Folder

Recently, i put a program in the startup folder in

C:usersadminappdataroamingmicrosoftwindowsstart menuprogramsstartup

I later decided that i didn't want the program to startup every time i log on, but instead of deleting the program i accidentally deleted the startup folder instead. The folder is no longer in the recycling bin. Does anyone have any idea of how to replace my startup folder because i would really like to put some programs in there.

I've tried using task scheduler, but didn't find it to be very effective. What i really need is a new startup folder.
