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.)

Sir
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 installed.

In Google search box, when I type Ctrl+Z( for undo), it does NOT work. Neither does Ctrl+Y( for redo). When I type Ctrl+backspace for deleting the preceding word, it works perfectly, but when I type Ctrl+Delete to delete the following word, it does NOT work at all. Kindly help me out of this problem.

In Notepad, Ctrl+Z( undo) works but Ctrl+Y(redo) does not. Neither does Ctrl+backspace(to delete the preceding word) but Ctrl+Delete(to delete the following word) works perfectly.

I don't know why some shortcut keys work and some don't. Please tell me how to make all these shortcut keys work in Google search box as well as in Notepad.

Yours sincerely

Yoga 2-11 Yesterday the CTRL-C, CTRL-X, and ALT-CTRL-DEL functions stopped working; strangely CTRL-V works fine. It's very difficult to get the @  and ? symbols to appear, but capital letters using the same Shift key are fine. Also, when I would type, several of the same letter would appear, and when pressing the space bar several spaces would appear. I fixed this issue by adjusting my keyboard settings by setting the repeat rating to the slowest setting. I've used device manager to uninstall the keyboard, also updated drivers, etc, but nothing seems to fix things. Using Windows Key R and OSK to display the onscreen keyboard, and using my physical keyboard for input confirms that the Shift and CTRL keys work. One thing that I noticed: when I touch the CTRL key a round onscreen circle appears and gets smaller and disappears; this is also true for CTRL-X and CTRL-C, but when using CTRL-V the circle does not appear.

Thread title pretty much sums it up: CTRL-A disabled, CTRL Key Works, A Key Works, Other CTRL-combos work. I use CTRL-V, CTRL-C, CTRL-Z, etc all the time.

CTRL-A has never worked for me, in any application. Instead of selecting all, CTRL-A pastes, the same as CTRL-V, only when you use CTRL-A, in addition to pasting, it also makes a system sound, kind of like a knock sound. Out of desperation to identify the sound I looked control panel sounds and listened to all of them, it's not there.

I've never really needed CTRL-A until now because I'm wanting to use a specific application that has no other way to select all except CTRL-A, so I'm now desperate...

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi... I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my Dell Inspiron 1720 with a tricked out Firefox 3 with a bunch of extensions, and all of a sudden today I started notice that Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F, 2 keyboard shortcuts that I use ALL THE TIME, are no longer working in ANY APPLICATION. The F and Control keys are working fine separately and other common shortcuts such as Ctrl + C, V, A, O, and P are working just fine.

I've tried it in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Paint and Dreamweaver and Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F don't work in either one of those applications. The weird thing is without doing much of anything, it was working at some point today after I had noticed it WASN'T working, but now I rebooted for another reason and those 2 shortcuts are not working again.

By the way, I went into Vista's Ease of Access center (previously called Accessibility I believe), and everything is turned off.

And I also tried the control key to the right of my keyboard. None of it works.

Very annoying... Anyone got any ideas or know of any app that will help me find out what the problem is?

Thank you very much in advance, any help's appreciated

Hello. I encountered a weird problem.

I recently bough Acer Aspire 5734Z with Windows 7 Home Edition installed. When I type CTRL + C or CTRL + V my touchpad stops working for a few seconds. Then it get back to normal. And Except this the functions of ctrl + c and ctrl + v works.

This happens all the time, no matter how much I copy, I can copy nothing doing just the combination and my touch pad freezes.

When playing games as GTA Vice City I have problems using WASD movement at the same time as I adjust the screen(camera) with touch pad. Suddenly lot of combinations stop working, and I have to either stop walking around (WASD combinations) and use touchpad to adjust screen, then stop using touchpad and go back to using WASD.

I hope you understand. I am not very good at explaining things. And I really hope to find a solution to this.

When I did first-run of the laptop, the touchpad didnt have scrolling function working. So I went to acer.com, found my computer model, selected Windows 7 Home Edition and installed the newest touchpad driver 64bit. And it worked. Scrolling working. But freezing problems still occurs. And I think it might be some windows 7 anti multitasking function or something.

Hi all!
I need help to use macros properly. It is my first attempt at doing this, and I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

I have found this thread which resembles my problem, but I still do not understand what to do

Basically, I have 2 Excel spreadsheets open.
One is List A, the other is List B (Master List).

I have worker codes in List A, and have to find them in the B list to assign them a code (1) in column M.

What I did was go in my first spreadsheet, and selected the first worker code. Then, I started recording my Macro from there.

A:Solved: Macro in Excel help! Using CTRL+V inside a CTRL+F

Macro recorder only record specific actions, not generic actions.
So you can't use it to repeat the steps for other cells.
You have to code it specifically in VBA.

As for your case you can have a lookup formula in column M of the Master list to do the check.

eg in cell M12 of List B, type
=COUNTIF('
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)

this goes to your List A first column to count the number of instances the value in cell A12 occurs.
Assuming there is no duplicate, the result is either 1 if found or 0 if not found.

If there are more than one instances in List A, the formula can be adapted to
=(COUNTIF('
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)>0)*1

*1 will ensure that the result which is True or False becomes 1 or 0.

The left ctrl key when pressed immediately makes the font size in the window larger and larger and after 2 or 3 presses opens a new tab in firefox.

The XPS 15-9530 keyboard requires that you hold the Function key to do home/end (Function+Left is Home and Function+Right is End).  That works fine, but I have found that if Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End are a bit finicky.  Specifically, the key order I have to press to do a Ctrl+Home is Ctrl then Function then Left.  If I do Function then Ctrl then Left, it only sends a Home and not a Ctrl+Home.  Is there any way to work around this?  It's a bit annoying to have my Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End fail so often while I'm retraining myself.

My remote desktop session does not appear to be sending the ctrl+alt+left (CAL) or ctrl+alt+right (CAR) combinations to the target machine.

Yesterday everything worked fine. I installed Windows Vista Ultimate 64 and could successfully RD to my laptop machine, which is running XP Pro SP2. CAL and CAR worked.

Today I installed SP1 on the Vista machine. Now my RD won't sent CAL or CAR.

I downloaded a simple keyboard tester application and installed it on both machines. Locally on the Vista machine, CAL and CAR are detected. Same thing locally on the XP machine. When I RD from Vista to XP and try the keyboard test the program shoes that it is receiving the CTRL+ALT combination but doesn't register when I hit the left or right arrow key at the same time. Interestingly, the up and down arrows *do* register.

I tried the RD connection from XP to Vista. Everything works normally. I tried an RD connection from another XP SP2 machine to my laptop. It works.

Any ideas? Is there some sort of key binding in Vista that takes the CAL and CAR combinations before RD can get them? Is RD in Vista 64 filtering them out for some reason?

Thanks

Hi, so back in January I got this TOSHIBA Satellite laptop and about 2 months ago CTRL + V (Paste) stopped working. the V key works fine, the CTRL key works fine, and I can do all other shortcuts besides this one. This is very frustrating, especially for playing video games, given that you can't right click>paste. For some reason can't get onto the other site that I asked this question on, so I'm turning to here. A month ago, if I did SHIFT + CTRL + V it worked, (I only need to control C or X for any others shift was only for the pasting) and it puzzled me, but I just used it anyways. This stopped working two weeks ago and I couldn't keyboard paste since. just restarted my PC and it let me paste twice, and I thought it was fixed (it had just updated) and it turns out the third this I tried to paste, nothing happened, and I was back to square one. Please help me, this is driving me crazy. Thank you.

Hello Pat,

Try uninstalling your keyboard driver as follows:

1. Windows Key + X > Device Manager
2. Expand the "Keyboards" entry
3. Rt. Click your keyboard and choose 'uninstall'
4. After Windows has removed the keyboard, go to the 'Action' menu (at the top of Device Manager), choose Scan for Hardware Changes

At this point Windows will re-initialize the driver and reinstall the keyboard.

A:Ctrl +alt + del dont work

Hi there
if CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't work then I'd suggest ".... Houston We Have a Problem".

CTRL+ALT+DEL should work on ANY type of keyboard.

Something is either hosing you up or your keyboard has got broken.

Just try switching keyboards for a quick test. If this doesn't work then maybe the Mobo is broken although even on a Laptop a USB keyboard should still work .

Cheers
jimbo

A:ctrl/Alt/Delete does not work

Hello wilson186,

We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting any malware that may be present. As noted in the final step (Step 5) of our sticky topic IMPORTANT - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help....

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop.

What DSS will do:create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review.
DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt in your next reply.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and

When I hit 'ctrl + alt + delete', nothing happens. It doesn't even pop up for a second like some other have said. 'alt + f4' and 'alt + tab' also do not work at all.

I'm still able to get the task manager up by hitting 'ctrl + shift + ecs', but would like to get the other functions working as well.

I'm using Windows XP is that helps at all.
 

A:'ctrl + alt + delete' Does not work

Click on start, then try CTRL ESC - Does it open the program menu?

Then open 2-3 program and minimize it, then use the combination ALT TAB - are you able to navigate to different windows this way?

Launch Nopad -- Type something, then highligth it , then press Delete -- are you able to delete the text?

If all the above combination work, then you know that each key works correctly, if not, then is possible that you need to replace the keyboard

Have you tested all the keyboard combinations, the left CTRL, Rigth ALT etc.... Do you have another keyboard?

Also test in Safe Mode.

It's very possible that you have Trojans.
Update or get Antivirus program, and run it in Windows Safe Mode.
If you don't have Antivirus software you can get Free Trial version from the Internet (Norton or Kaspersky).
Good luck

It has been about 2 weeks with no response from my C.A.D. buttons in tandem. I have seen no signs of anything thing fishy going on till tonight when I went to log on I noticed my Screen was black, and when I tried to log on I could see the mouse move but nothing else. I then tried to manually turn off the tower when I got a message that said as best I can remember "others are logged onto your computer, shutting down now will cause them to lose data, would you like to continue this operation." of course I said yes, but I couldn't get it to work. so I pulled the cat5 and manually shut her down then, upon reboot I tried to access the f8 function for safe mode, but after 2 tried I realized this wasn't gonna happen. Odds are someone is getting a kick out of seeing me type these words... Can you help?

Ctrl Alt Del does not work at all. I have pop ups with Firefox and IE. Every time I start my computer, Spybot catches some things that want to change registry. I have no idea what they are...just groups of numbers. Also, occasionally a screen pops up that looks like it is trying to install Microsoft Office, which is allready installed. In addition, the computer seems to be running slow. I have completed all of the first 5 steps. I did not download the SP2, but I think it was allready on my computer. Thank you so much for your help.

I had a traumatic brain injury severely affecting coordination in my left hand. I keep losing my work -- all of it -- blank screen, and don't know what wrong key I hit to provoke this useful little accomplishment.

I wonder if I am hitting Ctrl-A, then typing some characters so that the whole page gets deleted and replaced with the next characters I typed.

If I perform another action before realizing what has happened, Ctrl-Z undo isn't going to help, right? (Unless there is some kind of "Undo history" I am unaware of.) Are there 'timed document backup' and 'original document backup' functions that work inside other applications such as e-mail?

What I would MOST like to do is to shut off all Ctrl-key, Alt-key, Shift-key and Function commands so that there is no way of accidentally invoking any of them. If anyone knows how, and if possible how to set it up so that they are always off whenever I reboot, that would be awesome.

If there is some other possibility I'm missing, please advise. I've really tried to find the answer on my own, but I guess my cognition isn't what it used to be. Many many thanks!
