lol, yeah.. when this fist happened to my I was like WTF?!? it was really making me mad and Im sure its having the same effect on you

assuming you are on a desktop computer, about the 4 arrow keys are insert, home, page up and down, delete, and end. That insert key is your problem.. Try pressing that and then typing

there ya go..

What I don't get is, I swear I don't ever press the Insert key, so how that turns on, I don't know, but it always seems to.
