When I press Ctrl 3 times in a row the key board freezes :(

by sadpanda91 / January 9, 2010 10:16 PM PST

My younger brother plays this online game called MapleStory and apparently in the game to attack he has to press Ctrl a bunch of times in a row. However the problem is, whenever you press Ctrl 3 times in a row the num lock/caps lock/etc lights up top stop flashing and the keyboard basically freezes up until you hit Enter. Is there anyway to fix those so the keyboard doesn't freeze up by hitting Ctrl multiple times in a row?

Some Google addon is installed. Uninstall all Google add ons and retest.

Sorry but for most versions of Windows I look in Add Remove Software. That name changes with each version of Windows which makes you wonder why they do that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
