Sticky Keysor ???

Somehow my sticky keys got engaged and I haven't been able to disengage. Shift keys held down, removing the check marks in the accessibility mode and re-starting, nothing is working. I have XP and amat a loss. It is still typing in mostly uppercase, highlighting when not wanted, etc. Even went to restore but it would not click on the last bold date. If someone hasbeen thru this before please respond, thanks

What's a sticky key?

Did you already try another keyboard?

Why are you holding the Shift key down?

Don't you just remove the tick in the "Use StickyKeys" option, then Apply/OK out?

(NT) I did what you suggested and it didn't work

Just a few notes.

System Restore may require disabling something in Norton. Got Norton?

To turn off StickyKeys, press the Shift key five times

FilterKeys is a little harder.
