Delete key when i use the delete key, my caps light comes on and the microsoft assist window opens with out deleting the desired charactor. after a second attempt, the microsoft save as box opens and further subsequent attempts only result in other windows unrelated boxes and windows to open. this happens not only in MS WORD but Works and any time the dlete key is attepted to be used. the only way I can delete anything is either to reposition the curser with the mouse and backspacing or via menu selection. I have tried everything short of a ball peen hammer to fix this problem

    more on this problem, turns out not to be a software problem but hardware. after playing around with the computer I noticed the screen to have a little play at the hinges. If i pushed slightly on the screen the problem was evident, if i pulled the screen toward me with very little force the the problem ceased. I lifted the hinge cover at the base of the screen and tightened the hinge screws on both sides and that did the trick. who would have thunk it. thanks to those who gave me input

It sounds as if the keyboard is shorting out internally. With the cost of keyboards so low (many times under $10), it's not really worth troubleshooting it very long or hard - a better fix likely is to just buy a new keyboard.

    How can i fix m3plugin .dll error


    Do the following step and get rid of it.
    Open Run , type regedit and press enter
    Go to

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

    and check for the key Shell, the value of this must be Explorer.exe . if you can see some other after that like Explorer.exe C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin... , then remove the second file from the value, means it must only Explorer.exe

    In Regedit go to;

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    and delete any value except "Default".

    then go to;

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    and delete value except default and anti virus.

    Best of luck.
