    ok so i try to log onto my computer this morning and i cant get my password to work

    trying multiple times and nothing

    so i push the capslock button jjust to try it and it works

    go into the control panel to see about fixing the password and i cant click on anything when i click on anything it highlights that one thing and everything before and above it
    so i cant open that
    open up firefox and i cant scroll using the keys
    anytime i click to open a link or a new website from the drop down address bar it opens up in a new window
    wont let me open anything in a new tab

    also i cant use any punctuation
    its like the keys are stuck in shift <>?:"+_)(@$%^%& numbers too

    wtf is going on here? im running some software but have never had any issues with viruses

    you have a stuck shift key

    smack your keyboard around a bit and see if that makes it work

    if not you probably need a new keyboard

    that does sometimes happen that it never gets the 'up' command from the key. just smack both shift keys a couple dozen times, should fix you right up.

    Happens to my alt key all the time.

    God I hope that's all it is. I've never had a virus on a computer of my own, not something I want to deal with.

    and sometimes you can't help getting some on the keyboard. when you find that special pic or video, the excitement just takes over.
