Tell me Why and how to get rid of it

by Oldgeorge / May 1, 2004 1:42 PM PDT

When I am online trying a message like this, the first time I hit the spacebar on the keyboard the computer locks up for about one minute. From that point on I have to use the following procedure:

"Control Key Space Bar, Control Key Space Bar".

This procedure then gives me one space in the text. I have double the procedure to get two spaces between
sentences.

Count the spaces and how to get rid of it, PLEASE!

You might look at the Accessibility Options in Control Panel. Lots of keyboard settings there.
