I'm trying to fix it using this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665220#LetMeFixItMyselfAlways

However it says:
Quote
For 32-bit Internet Explorer on 32-bit Windows or 64-bit Internet Explorer on 64-bit Windows
installations:
...

For 32-bit Internet Explorer on 64-bit Windows installations:
...
How do I determine which of these I'm running?

It also says
Quote
3. Create a new DWORD called
iexplore.exe
and set its value data to 0x00000000(0).
How do I do this?

It also says this as well
Quote
If after creating the registry key you want to re-enable connectivity events, set the value for
iexplore.exe
to 0x00000001(1).
Again, how do I do this too? Thanks.

Thanks for your help everyone. It's been a pleasure. :)

You're asking how to modify the windows registry , which is critical to the computer's operation : if you modify the wrong thing in the registry the computer can become totally inoperable.

It shouldn't be necessary to modify the registry to solve your problem.
Modifying "iexplore.exe" relates to Internet Explorer internet browser,
any modification there won't fix problems encountered on other programs like Microsoft word-processor.

If you must modify the registry, the tool to do that is regedit , but IMO do not change anything in the registry : risk without benefit in this case.

That your computer is not paying enough attention to the keyboard sounds like it is busy doing something else, if that is the case it should show up in "processes" tab of task-manager as a process using a lot of CPU , ( say constantly at about 50% CPU even when the  computer should be idle ). 

If the CPU is not running high then it's probably a problem specific to the wireless keyboard , this Microsoft page looks relevant ...

Thanks, RD. I'll take your advice and leave it alone. I don't want to mess with that stuff for fear of really messing it up.

Have you checked the settings for the keyboard "typing stroke delay"(basically speed and repeat speed-hold down) in the control panel for the keyboard. You may need to first install the keyboard driver for the OS to properly understand it, as much the transmission terminal.

I am sorry to butt in but was just wondering, PmbPhy what is your hard drive? Is SSD or the older type?
