(alt+fn+up) aka (alt+pg up) not a valid keystroke on Win 10 Yoga 720-15IKB

Question: (alt+fn+up) aka (alt+pg up) not a valid keystroke on Win 10 Yoga 720-15IKB

Using both the physical and on screen keyboard I can't send this desired input. Driver reinstalls did nothing. The hardware is fine. I can even get (alt+fn+down) to work. This isn't a global hotkey issue as best I can tell either. Some reported issues included the Intel Graphics Control Panel intercepting these inputs, so I disabled its hotkey manager and the problem persists.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am a very frustrated and angry customer at the moment as i keep running into Road Block and unacceptable answers.  This issue is enough to cause me to never buy another Lenovo laptop or any laptop at Best Buy!I bought my computer in July and in September i noticed a key had popped off-  the "< ," key next to the M key.  I have used the key board only when i was setting up-  now at my office and at customers i set it in downward dog mode ;-) and use a blue tooth key board.    So it is not from use that it broke.   I took the laptop into BEST BUY and was told that the key was missing a metal part on the back so they could not fix it onsite-  i would have to send it in and be without my laptop for a week to 10 days - unacceptable -  this was a month or more ago. I searched on the LENOVO website and could not find a way to purchase a single or the entire set of Keys!  I am self employed as a software consultant.   My life is pretty busy and i finally decided today to bite the bullet and ask for a call from Lenovo support.  Again i am told the only way to fix this is to send my laptop in for a repair.  I asked to just be able to buy a KEY - i am told that well they do not sell individual keys - they would replace the entire keyboard!  So sell me the keyboard and or send me one an i will take into best buy to have them replace it while i wait.  They cannot do that.   I live...

Question: Yoga 720-15ikb

Hello, i am thinking of getting the laptop above, but I have a few concerns. 1) is the wireless card in it already an intel 8265ac card? Is not, can it be upgraded with a FRU 01AX704? I'm not sure if it's compatible with the bios whitelist on this machine and my googling skills haven't come back with much! 2) what make is the SSD in this machine? Is it PCIE-NVME based? It only says 256gb. Can hard drives be replaced for any model or does it have to be in the whitelist like wireless cards? I'm hoping it's a Samsung pro 960 256gb! 3) I've also heard it's hard to install windows from scratch on these machines due to the controller for the hard drive being set to RAID rather than AHCI/NVME, which means windows doesn't detect it upon installation. I've heard there's a bios out there now which allows AHCI to be selected from the bios so it makes it straight forward enough (a lot of linux users wanted this!) but Lenovo have said it may cause issues with performance if installing windows through this way? Is this just Lenovo covering their backs or is this a genuine concern? any clarification on the bottom point would be great. thanks!

I have Sketchup Pro 2017 installed on my Yoga 720 laptop at work.  On paper it seems like this computer should be more powerful than the machine its replacing, but its performance in Sketchup is really slow.  It makes the program really difficult to use because its freezing and lagging so much.  I've run a quick diagnostic on the machine and it passed.  I also have run Sketchup with the task manager window open and it seems to be using about 35-45% of the memory while its running.  Is it a graphics card issue?  My collegue ran one of the same files I've been working on and it worked fine and her machine is in theory less powerful.  She is using Windows 7 however.  Could it be an operating system issue?  Any other ideas?

Having issues with constant ghost touches on touchscreen. Have tried checking for updates, uninstalling/reinstalling driver. Ended up disabling driver. Tried re-enabling after a bunch of updates and there are so many ghost touches that it took over a minute to click the "disable" button and make it stop. Have seen previous models have had luck with firmware updates. Anything like that available for the 720?

I started having a problem with my screen when I tried to install a program called Monosnap. At first my computer screen was completely white and I had a hard time seeing anything. I uninstalled the program and it got a little better. Virus scans said I didn't catch anything. I reset to my previous Windows back up point and it got a little better. It still had like a white film over the screen with like a halo of pure color around the edges. Then I reinstalled the display driver and that fixed the problem with the permanent white film over everything, except now it randomly flickers completely white, with verticle lines. I've included a picture.

I just bought this machine and the display color is rather yucky and washed out. I did play with color calibration in the Windows 10 settings, and was able to match my existing monitor by turning red and green way down and then cranking up the saturation in Intel UHD 630 settings. The problem is, the screen now gives me headache because blue is turned up relative to red and green. So now I'm looking to see if I have the right color profile to begin with. The color profile associated with the monitor was "sRGB display profile with display hardware configuration set to.." Is this the right profile for this laptop? I did search and I couldn't find the color profile for this laptop. Microsoft site says I need to get the monitor driver, not the display/graphics driver, but I don't find that either. Does anybody know where I can find the downloadable color profile for this model?

So, I too am reporting the ghost touch issue with my Lenovo laptop.  This is on the Yoga 710-15IKB model.  Same exact issue that others are reporting on the 700, 710, and 900 models.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled ALL drivers found for this model, updated drivers via Microsoft, have the BIOS update, made countless changes to the touchpad to see if it is the issue.  But, NONE of those things have worked.  The issue appears to happen randomly after waking up from sleep.  Usually within a few minutes after wake.  I can do NOTHING to stop the issue once it starts other than to hard reset the power button, then wait a few seconds and restart.  Once I've done that, the issue is resolved until... whenever it randomly wants to do it again... usually the next day. Lenovo... there has to be a solution to this!  You resolved it with a firmware upgrade on the older 700 model.  Can you work through the issue and get us a solution?  And, please, don't say to send the unit in for repair.  The issue clearly is a firmware issue.

Lenovo support, thank you for bios solution for windows it's really helpful, but you forgot one thing. That thing is Linux users!! Instalation Linux for that laptop is like a developers quiz, you should become UNIX developer to start FREE Ubuntu on that device. After installation new issues - drivers. What`s going on, Lenovo? I can't use my fingerprint on it, cause no drivers!!!! And the most painfull for me: NOIZE from laptop, it`s like a reactive rocket, on battery it work just 2-3 hours(at the same time linux use less CPU and RAM).

Hi, MP87 ?
 
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
If you get the white screen during POST but the display is fine on an external display then the cause if most likely the LVDS cable. Try to reseat or change this part and observe.

Hello!In the past few days, my yoga laptop has been having this issue where if I unplug my headphones once, they won't work again till I reinstall my driver and restart my laptop.  However, once they are unplugged again I'm back at square one.  I've tried with three different set of headphones (different two earbuds and one normal over the ear type) and I have the same issue.I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Realtek High Definition Audio driver a lot of times in these past few days.  I've even tried installing it via redownloading the file from the lenovo support page and nothing seems to work.  Once the headphones are unplugged, only my speakers work.  It is like the laptop kind of recognizes that the headphones are plugged in, but will not play sound through them.I've also noticed that when I start playing music (while the music is still picking up my headphones) the music will start really quiet and then suddenly get VERY loud at random despite the volume number it is on.  Once it gets louder, it stays that way until the headphones are unplugged.  Then, I hear nothing once replugging them in.I'm not sure what to do and I hope I can get some help.Thanks!

Last week I spilled drop of coffee+milk on my trackpad and it stopped working properly (I know you think I must have actually dropped a gallon but I asked my friend to come over and open my laptop with me and after we opened it, he couldn't see anything -- he was skeptical that I had dropped any liquid whatsoever, so, yeah, it was a drop of milk+coffee on the wrong place..). The pointer was behaving erraticatly and my friend and I, not tech savvy but rational ppl, figured that it must have short-circuited. So I went to ebay and order a replacemente part. The trackpad came with the keyboard + palmrest. The trackpad seemed to be a perfect match. The palmrest was a little bit different. My laptop has the fingerprint reader but the one I ordered didn't have. I thought it wouldn't make any difference since I only wanted the trackpad.The replacement arrived. I swapped the trackpad, made sure all cables were connected (there's actually only one but you got the point), closed my laptop, turned it on and... the trackpad was still not working.  Does anyone have any idea of what I should do next? I took a closer look on the letters and numbers I found on the trackpad and compared the original with the replacement and there's one or two numbers/letters that are different but they are otherwise identical. I can't make sense of why it didn't work and can't think of what to do next. I'd really appreciate some feedback. Thanks,

Hi, I have this problem, which I also had on a 710-15ISK before I replaced mine with this model due to cracked screen. Intermittently, while "computering", the keyboard will stop working as expected.Only a variety of keys will work, like some mode has been activated by an accidental key press.Like I said, this happened on my previous 710 as well. It's frustrating because I'm learning programming, and the issue doesn't resolve until I sleep the laptop and unsleep it, which makes me believe it isn't some key combination I'm hitting, but rather maybe a jam of the keyboard.The same keys stop working each time, and same for the keys that remain working. If I can if it happens again, I will write down each key working/not working, but until then, does anyone have some insight on this?

I have come to my last resort, which feels like I have wasted money on this Yoga - It has taken me almost a year, I still don't have a clean event log and the only thing I have minimized is the locking up of the machine when the nvidea goes haywire.  Simple answer - on edge and explorer I force fed it the crappy Intel chip.  Now it's 'rev up' is limited.   I'm running Win10Pro 64bit. up to date on everything.  This situation has been since the first day I used this thing.  I can't trust it enough to use for work, so here it sits. just something to do nothing much with.   Is there a real fix for this that makes better sense than having a GPU that isn't used?

Hi there,  My very new Lenovo Yoga 710 (15" IKB) laptop/two-in-one has been fantastic so far except in one regard. Whenever I play a game, the fan gets quite loud and the temperature shoots up. I'm not one hundred percent sure if this happened in the first few days but I have come to notice it far more recently. When playing a pretty standard game, such as World of Warcraft, the temp will shoot up to somewhere around 65 degrees celsius (sometimes up to 70) with the bottom getting quite hot, and the fans will become quite loud. Even a very low requirement game, like FIFA 15 (which is obviously 2 years old now), can cause the temp to reach about 60 degrees and the fans to get loud, and when downloading a driver from Nvidia I noticed that the temperature had again risen, this time to 52 degrees with the fans spinning loudly again. I had earlier had a display issue that I fixed by downloading display drivers from Lenovo's website. I'm not sure if there's any driver I could download to rectify this issue (I already updated BIOS from the download on Lenovo's website)?

Recently I found out that my lenovo yoga 710-15ikb laptop doesnt support digitizer active pen technology. Its hidden in online talks and also frustration when you buy a $70 wacom bamboo ink pen to find that it doesnt work. I understand that most active pens wont work with my computer because the screen (and maybe motherboard) dont have a digitizer. However, I have been looking online and some retailers appear to be selling digitizer lcd screens for my specific model. My question is whether or not these retailers are selling aftermarket screens and if they are will the digitizer work once one is installed? Also, I have a lot of experience doing repair work, mainly with digital cameras and building my desktop, so the task of replacing my laptops screen is not a problem Im just unsure as to whether or not buying a new digitizer lcd screen will work. I dont want to spend money that I dont have to if it turns out that I am just being misled.

Two days ago, my internet was being slow, and I had the adapter reset as per usual through the WiFi troubleshooter. The adapter for the first time caused a BSOD when doing this. So I thought "Fine, its a one time thing", I didn't get the chance to get the error message but the cause involved the adapter, I know that much. When my laptop restarted, I noticed a nice little "x" on the speaker tray icon. Scrolling over it, it told me that "No Audio Output Device is Installed." Nothing I did would fix it, including the basic solutions across the internet such as uninstalling the drivers, etc. While looking at the drivers, not all of them were missing, only maybe one or two, definitely one in the Sound, video and Game Controllers area with the name (MEDIA) in it (that much I remember, I believe it was from NVIDIA too), along with one that was put into the "Other Drivers" area, or whatever it was called, by Intel but with a yellow exclamation mark on it and it related to audio.

After i upgraded to BIOS 2XCN30WW(V2.05) dated 2017/06/21 i started to experience lags and temporary freezes (for 20/30 seconds and it would recover) while using windows 10 creators edition.The lag/freeze can be described as a period of time every 10 minutes or so in which the computer stops responding to keyboard input and eventually to mouse movements, if you had a youtube video or audio playing in the background it starts coming out distorted, everything makes you think there is something hogging the CPU or RAM, it recovers itself after 20 or 30 seconds, sometimes less than that.I first blamed Slack Client but quickly found that it didn't have anything to do. It didn't seem related to load as the CPU/RAM usage in Task Manager remained low during these periods.I then blamed a recent Windows Update patch , which i rolled back prompty without noticing any changes.My last option and what ultimately resolved the issue is the rolling back the BIOS upgrade that i applied at about the same time of the windows patch.I enabled the Allow Back-Flash option in BIOS setup and rolled back to version 2XCN29WW, and the problem dissapeared for good, and just to confirm that the BIOS was to blame after a few days of happy computing i decided to give the new BIOS another try and TADAH! soon after the update the freeze/lags started again.I just wanted to share this with you guys in hopes that if you are having similar issues you can resolve them using this message.And since Lenovo doesn't seem...

Hi! I have read everywhere that fn+esc should activate/deactivate Paper Display (for example here) but it does not seem to work on my new Yoga 720 15". I found this but it is supported only by different models. Any ideas on what to do? Is the hotkey function working on other Yoga 720 computers? Thanks!

As in my subject, can the Yoga 720 (15-inch) be hooked up to a 2560x1440 @ 144Hz External Monitor? I understand that I have to get a usb-c to DisplayPort adaptor to get it to work. However, I am not sure of the DisplayPort specifications in this Thunderport 3 port of Yoga 720 as for a laptop to run 144Hz on an external monitor, it has to be at least DisplayPort 1.2.

Answer:Yoga 720 - 15IKB: Can it be hooked up to a 2560x1440 @ 144Hz External Monitor?

I'm not an expert with monitors, but I'd check the monitor's specs to see what kind of inputs it'll work with. I would imagine the monitor will upscale or adapt to the input signal. It'd be silly to make a monitor that wouldn't work with anything the installed base of computers can throw at it.

Hi everyone. I have tried searching here and on Google for a solution and can?t find anything for Yoga 710-15IKB owners.

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 710-15IKB Touchpad Settings? Two-finger gestures?

Ended up taking the laptop back to Best Buy. The Geek Squad rep and I compared the model on the shelf. While the driver information matched, my model did not recognize the trackpad as being standalone (it was acting as a mouse in a PS/2 port). We concluded my computer had a faulty trackpad and got an exchange. All is well!

I have a customer who has the above model Lenovo laptop. She hooked up an an external display via HDMI using a HDMI-mini HDMI adapter connected to the mini-HDMI port of the laptop which was working fine for more than a few months. She was using the Best Buy Insignia brand. All of a sudden, the external display no longer detected the laptop and the laptop didn't detect the second display. I remoted in and checked everything out and it seemed OK as far as drivers and such so, for simplicity sake (and after having her verify the external display was working wtih other devices), I had her pick up an Insignia HDMI-miniHDMI cable and just bypass the adapter. She tried that, no luck. So I remoted in again and uninstalled the Intel and Nvidia drivers and reisntalled them using the drivers from the Lenovo website. There was no change. I've done some extensive research about this issue in the forums and there have been other models with similar issues and the fixes were... using a different cable, different adapter, or both. These were mainly solutions to solve the problem of secondary displays not being detected at first, not fixing the issue of it working just fine for a while until one day... nothing. Has anyone come across an issue similar to this? I'm trying to get more of a definate solution versus swapping more adapters and cables around. One last idea I have is to hook it up to my monitor via an HDMI to DVI adapter using her HDMI to mini HDMI cable but I have a feeling, th... Read more

I am a part-time computer technician when I am not at my actual job doing IT Help Desk for the bank, and I have an issue with this laptop i am working on.

Laptop specs:
Toshiba Satelite L455D
Windows 7 32bit (sticker does not say which version)
(per belarc and magic jelly bean software)
it listed this on the OS:
Windows 7 Home Premium(build 7600)

under the Software Licenses(on belarc)
Microsoft - Windows 7 Home Premium XXXXX-OEM-X...X-XXXXX(Key:"listed key here")
with magic jelly bean, it pulled the same license key

The laptop was brought to me because it would not boot. After diagnosing, i discovered the hard drive had/is failing. So, preparing to install windows again i was hoping the hard drive was just lying to me about failing. it wasn't.
I had to get a hold of the laptop's owner and he informed me he did not have any discs or anything for the laptop.
*the sticker on the bottom of the laptop (where the key is suppose to be) is blank so i think it faded? but the "Proof of license Certificate of Authenticity Microsoft" is on there nice black and bold. so this is why i had to ask the customer if they had their discs.

To get the laptop to boot to the hard drive, i had to do some work on it. I plugged it into an adapter to my computer and ran multiple different chkdsk switches, and to my surprise it finally booted to the os.

Question: Keystroke lag

Keystroke lag problem:  My HP laptop running WIN7 intermittantly has keystroke lag problems, i.e., i type a letter and it will not show/be visible for a few seconds.  This problem always happens when I can hear, what I assume is,  the hard drive whirling.  I've looked at Task Manager during this problem period and nothing jumps out at me.  When the hard drive goes quiet, the delayed keystroke problem goes away.
I've read several past posts regarding this problem, but given my limited knowledge base, I'm not able to figure out a solution.   I've run virus, malware scans, nothing seems to help.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hello MG,

I d/l and installed the above program from here. My avg picked it up as a virus and hence I uninstalled it asap and ran the avg. Is there a keystoke that you can recommend where children cannot access it?

Thanks,

Answer:Keystroke Spy

It's not a virus but AVG likes to boost it's 'detection' ratings.

It should really be classified as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) and there ought to be a way of setting an exception for it so that you can use it without the antivirus bothering you or blocking it.

If you use AVG, all similar software will be flagged as a 'virus' until you find a way to set AVG correctly.

Hi, after using Google and searching through forums I'm still stuck with the following problem. For a installation at the Deutsches Museum in Munich I need the Yoga to boot itself at a defined date/time. Shutting down is not the problem, but automatic boot is. Normally there are two ways how to do this- Wake on LAN- Wake on RTC- Wake on Power (if a PC gets connected to a power source it will start automatically) I'm missing those options in the BIOS settings. But maybe I've overread something. Maybe I have to look somewhere else. The only source I found (not yet tested) was https://tinkertry.com/wol-over-usb3 where I have to built my own solution. Anyway, is there any chance to boot the the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro or Yoga 3 Pro at a specific date/time? Best wishes 

Answer:Yoga 2 Pro/Yoga 3 Pro - Missing BIOS function to automatically boot the Yoga at specific time

I have been spending hours to find a way to apply WOL to a yoga 3 pro. I could not believe that it is simply not there. Is that to protect the user or a mistake? Is there an update I missed somewhere, or is a correction  being prepared? Thanks

I was logged into my system through remote desktop, when someone else attempted to access the same machine locally using the same user account. I was naturally dropped from the connection, but the local user is now experiencing a problem where everything they type is altered in some way. When she used msn messenger to contact me and ask "What's wrong with this keyboard", we both saw "what 5s 4- w5th th5s 2eyb6ard". Everything she types, regardless of the program used (messenger, notepad, word etc), gets scrambled like this. However, when I connect to the machine through remote desktop, I don't experience this problem. This leads me to think that this is not a font-related problem. Can the local keystrokes be misinterpreted? This is beyond the scope of my experience with XP. Any thoughts?
 

Answer:Odd XP Keystroke Problem

a simple system restore to a day prior to the problem can fix this problem

Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.

On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system checkpoint in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next. A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

I am having major problems opening and closing everything on my computer and it is getting worse. I have PC Tools spyware doctor with antivirus,registry fix, privacy guardian, spam monitor and symantec antivirus. I ran malware log and it noted multiple low level tracking threats but also noted malware in the form of application.keystroke spy and adyieldmanager. Spyware doctor says they quarantined it and also caught adyieldmanager but computer still takes several minutes to open and close anything, with some things like email account sign-in pages and symantec antivirus application not closing at all. I know the malware is not gone cause I am getting warnings from spyware about other "ad" type threats. When I run malware log again, it freezes when scanning browser "trusted sites" area. To make matters worse, spyware tech support emailed me to add three spyware exe type files to spyware doctor, symantec and windows firewall which seems to have made things worse. On top of that I tried to tighten up my browser cookies and now browser pages are not loading colors and pictures (when they load at all). Word applications won't open and the whole system stops for long periods if I open task manager. spyware tech support is not available until day after tomorrow and I am afraid everything will be corrupted by then.

I just received a T420s which I bought mainly for its supposed keystroke noise suppression. However, I can't manage to enable it. In the ThinkVantage Communications Utility (v2.06) there?s a checkbox saying "Enable keystroke suppression" but I can?t detect any difference when the box is checked and unchecked. I?ve made audio recordings without seeing and hearing any difference, and I?ve made VoIP calls through GMail and Skype without hearing any difference at the receiving end when the box is checked and not.  Any suggestions to what I?m doing wrong, or is this feature actually not a real feature (merely marketing)?

Answer:Keystroke suppression?

The Lenovo marketing of this feature was in my opinion highly misleading.  I bought the T420 partly for its keyboard noise suppression, only to find out that it is a VOIP-only feature only after my purchase.  It is vaguely mentioned in so many places, without any mention of this restriction, that I thought it was based on destructive interference, which would be a really useful feature (although I can see how it would be hard to implement). I just wanted to mention that I don't think it will work with your audio recordings, but should work to some effect with Skype.  I've read another user report that even when working, it doesn't work perfectly; you should hear some noise reduction but the occasional clickety-clack.

I set a book on my keyboard and I heard something beeping. After I took the book off the keyboard, I now can hear beeps with every keystroke. Also I can't type duplicate any letters without a 5 second pause. I don't know what to do or where to go to undo whatever I inadvertently did! Please help!

Answer:Every keystroke beeps !

grc has a program that will do that ...did you download it or turn on type sound ?

I`ve got an HP Pavilion Desktop T3640 with Windows XP Media Centre edition 2005. Am using the keyboard that came with it.

To shut down, I have to click Start, Shut Down, and then Shut Down again when it appears in a new little window in the centre of the screen. I fancy it`s possible in one keystroke. The top left-hand key on the keyboard shows a black fingernail-moon, and seems to put the machineminto some low-power state - I don`t know if that`s hibernate or snooze or something else. Perhaps that button can be adapted to shut down. Or maybe another of the row of buttons could be reassigned.

Query 1: Any ideas about that ?

Query 2: Is that really too elementary a query for techguy, and if it is, can anyone recommend a kindegarten site for me ?

Answer:Shutting down with one keystroke ?

Question: Phanotm Keystroke

Hello i play a lot of pc fighting games, so of course i use a joypad and adapter.(just to verify this is not a hardware problem.. I think. If it is i will move this to the appropriate section)

One day i was trying to set up a second joypad to the program (this is not a specific program problem) and before i could map the inputs on the controller, some weird input from the keyboard took the place of the input.

The keystroke differs from program to program but the fact is that every program in which i try to map inputs (not just controllers, any game where i try to change the control scheme) this weird keystroke pops up before i can map a new key.

Thes are the keystrokes i have observed:
0xFF
0x8D
0x6F
other programs just read the input as ?.

edit: forgot to mention that Rootrepeal ran into these errors:
FOPS-DeviceIoControlError!0xc0000024 Extended Info (ox000000ec)
DeviceIoControlError! Error Code = 0x1e7
DeviceIoControlError! Error Code = 0x0
Could not initailize driver! Please contact the author!
 

Answer:Phanotm Keystroke

Hi and welcome. I can indeed review your logs so we can rule out malware, and if so, once we have, we can refer you to the appropriate software/hardware forum.

FYI though:

The version of MGTools.exe that you have run is very outdated. Please follow the below instructions:

Go to this link Using MGTools and download the new version of MGtools.exe using the black bold print link in the first sentence. Overwrite your previous MGtools.exe file with this one.

Now run the new MGTools.exe and attach the ---> C:\mglogs.zip that it generates. into your next reply here.

Thanks
kes13!

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help with this!

I was in my registry yesterday trying to completely uninstall a particular program (a question for another time), and noticed the following under HKEY_classes_root:

SKBMonitor.KeystrokeMonitor

and

SKBMonitor.KeystrokeMonitor1

Both have a subdirectory of CLSID, and the first has a CurVer subdirectory, as well.

I've searched all over and can't find anything about this on the internet - can anyone enlighten me? This worries me, obviously, but neither Trend nor a couple of spyware removal programs have detected anything - and I would be surprised, I guess, if any true keylogger would be that blatant about the name of the program.

Help!

Answer:Need help - keystroke logger???

Hi DonDomande,
Welcome to the forum,
I just checked my registry for that and could not find anything in my registry. Something you have installed I guess put that there? Hmmm I too do not like the looks of it.

Hello,

I was just wondering if there was a program available which can exchange keystrokes between computers rapidly in real time. E.g, if two people were to play a video game intended for two players, it could be achieved over 2 different computers with one computer sending the buttons he's pressing over to the other one.

Thanks,
Khemical_91

I'm running IE on MX. I like IE because of it's compatibility with all the other MS programs. But recently it has started not accepting ever keystroke, for example if I'm not watching what I'm typing and retyping every letter that doesn't appear, if I was to type:
"The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" it would come out like this:
Th quick brownfox juped over t lazy og.
I have tried downloading the latest version of IE and reinstalling it. It seemed to make a bit of a difference because it was really bad before I did it, but now it seems to be getting progressively worse again.
Any suggestions?
 

Answer:IE not accepting every keystroke

What kind of system is it running on, as in CPU speed, RAM, and OS?
