    I've had my PC completely restored after some Virus got me.
    Now I have a prblem with the typing and maybe the same problem when changing programs. Other than my age a my own typing problems.
    It seems like one character will be missing as I type, or an extra space will show up.
    My guru thinks it's in my bios setup.
    I dont know how to change that and I was too embarrassed about my ignorance to ask him. You guys cant see me face turn red.

    Something about typing speed and delay.
    How do I get into that? And what other suggestions might you have for me?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge.

    To assist you we will need a bit more information about your system and the "virus" that caused the problem.

    1. What version of XP are you running ?? Home or Pro ?? Service packs installed, patches up to date ??
    2. What was the virus that you had and how was it cleared ??
    3. How is your keyboard connected to the computer ?? USB wired or wireless ??

    Try going into Control Panel>Keyboard. You can change the repeat delay and repeat rate there.
    Also Control Panel>Accessibility Options>Filter Keys>settings>filter options.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
