Re: Windows Key shuts down computer when pressed
Go to Start->Control Panel->Power Options. There you will find various options where you instruct the Windows to to do what on your actions.
Also in Control Panel go to Keyboard option and tweak there. But you must tweak slowly , while noting down what you are doing, just in case you have to revert back.

Start in safe mode and see if one of your drivers is preventing VISTA to start. Press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
Press a Windows key (the ones with the Windows symbol on as shown right), this will open up the Start Menu.
Use the cursor keys (the ones with arrows on) to highlight 'Turn off Computer' and press Enter to select it
A dialog box will open. Use the cursor keys to to highlight 'Shutdown computer', 'Turn off' or whatever your version of Windows says, and press Enter again.
***Using the 'three finger salute'
Hold down Ctrl and Alt, and press Delete.
Windows 2000 and XP Home Edition users will be presented with a dialog box with buttons on:
· Use the cursor keys to select the 'Shut Down' button and use Enter to select it.
· Select 'Shut down' from the list using the cursor keys and press Enter one more time.
In other versions of Windows the Task Manager will open:
· Hold down Alt and press U to open the 'Shut Down' menu.
· Use the cursor keys to highlight 'Turn Off' and press Enter.
***Hit Alt F4 'till you can't any more
The final method of shutting down that I will explain here is to hold down the Alt key and press F4 repeatedly. This will close every application that is open on Windows and eventually will close Windows itself. You may be asked if you want to save files by some programs, if so use the cursor keys and Enter to get past these dialog boxes.
Press the Windows logo key + U. This will open the ease of access center. Click on the keyboard icon. It will say, "make the keyboard easier to use" next to it. In some versions of Windows you will need to get to the option by pressing the left shift key five times rapidly.
Select "turn on sticky keys" and "turn on filter keys." Select "save." Your computer will now only make sounds when the keyboard is hit.
Follow steps 1 and 2 to unlock your keyboard. Unselect the "sticky keys" and "filter keys" and click on "save."
Lock your workstation. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del. A blue screen or a box will pop up that has a variety of options, such as restart or shut down the computer. Click on "lock this computer."
Lock your workstation using the keyboard. Press the Windows key and the L key at the same time. This will lock the computer. To unlock press the combination again.
Hi, It can be caused due to any driver clash or antivirus . With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is
booting you will get a stuck key message as the computer is booting. If
this occurs instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key" tap the "F8
key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Windows Advanced Options Menu Please select an option:Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging Enable VGA mode Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only) Debugging Mode

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
can be seen from the above example, you should be able to highlight and
press enter to load the last known good configuration. Once completed
the computer should restart and attempt to load into Windows.
