Keyboard game play with Windows 7 64bit.

by vinnys8446 / May 7, 2011 3:01 AM PDT

I'm running windows 7 64bit ver. I tried different games and they all have the same problem with the keyboard, (tried 2 different keyboards). The problem is when in the game the movement keys don't work. I tried to map the keys in the game and the letter keys are replaced by numbers eg. "w" is replaced by the number "7". Please help.

System: OS WINDOWS 7 64BIT, MB ASUS|P8P67 DELUXE , CPU INTEL|CORE I7 2600K , MEM CORSAIR VENGEANCE 16GB DDR3 1600, SSD OCZ VERTEX 2 120GB SATA II, HD WD CAVIAR BLACK 2TB, OD LG BLACK BLU-RAY SATA, KB IDEAZON MERC STEALTH, MOUSE LOGITECH G5 LASER

Answer
Problem Was Constant Guard from Comcast, Now Fixed
by vinnys8446 / May 10, 2011 12:01 AM PDT

BillyB29 Resolved the problem. Here is his response: I read an article elsewhere (tomshardware) and one of the members said that it was the new protection suite he had downloaded from his ISP. Apparently there was a keylogger embedded in the suite (why a protection suite would include an invisible keylogger is beyond me...) With this information, I uninstalled my new security suite that I too downloaded from my ISP. Please note we both had 2 DIFFERENT security suites. He had some funny named one which I can't remember the name of and I had Constant Guard from Comcast. I was originally only using the Norton Suite comcast provided, but figured since this is a new computer, I'd give it a try. Well I just uninstalled it and tried one of my games - and so far... so good. Looks like that may have been the issue. If you installed any NEW anti-virus or security protection suites, I would try uninstalling them and then give it a try. Worked for me.
So as you can see it was Constant Guard from Comcast.
Thanks

I uninstalled it but still. I cannot get fire fox to remember my sign ons I use every day. It never prompts me to do that for me. So I figured it was a cookie problem. Nope. cookies are still accepted. So now I have to contact firefox and ask them to do that for me again. What were you thinking comcast and Constant guard????!!!!

Seems to be
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / June 15, 2011 6:15 AM PDT

a different problem to the one reported by the OP They had problems with keyboard game play.

Your problem appears to be with Firefox, unless I have misunderstood your post.

Why did you think Comcast's Constant Guard was the culprit with your problem?

Did you set Firefox Options to remember your passwords?
