Default Annoying Problem

Hey all,

just recently an annoying prob started occuring. Whilst on MSN Messenger 7.0 (beta) every time i hit the left shift button, it opens up windows calculator, ive done spyware checks with adaware and spybot, nothin, and have PCcillin 2005 installed, and it has not detected anything.

Just wondering if anyone has come acroos this before and how do you fix it before you throw the bloody thing out the window.

Cheers

Dan

ok, it says "none" in the properties so no, there is no shortcut associated with it.

lol, poor computer!

i have run out of ideas, what does right shift do, does it do the same as the left one?

Look on the bright side, you have a handy shortcut to your cal.

Before i forget do you have hot keys on your keyboard? maybe the drivers went a bit wrong!
