Are you sure it is in the safe mode.See if it is in safe mode you will see SAFE MODE written on the top and bottom left as well as top and bottom right of your screen.Please let me know.And i guess you must be chatting with someone else right now?Let me know if you got the solution from him.

Sounds like you have a sticky up arrow key,or you have a virus on your comp.Try booting in safemode by turning on your computer and tapping the F8 key while booting,then choose safemode.Once you are in Windows,open the program you are using and try your text document again.If it works correctly,you may have a virus.While you are in Safemode,run your virus scanner,then reboot your computer to see if the problem is solved.If it does not fix it,try running System Restore back to before the problem started.Good luck :)

Hi there,

You have mentioned that your computer works in safemode. This means that there are programs that starts up with windows that is causing this problem. In safemode, click start then run. In the run box type msconfig then click ok. At the startup tab you will see the programs that starts up with xp. Try disabling some or all of them (trial and error) to check which software gives you this problem.

This is a tough one. sounds to me like you have a bad driver. if you press f8 repeatedly at the beginning of boot before windows starts up, windows should give you a choice to start in 'safemode'. 

Safemode doesnt load any drivers from your manufacturer.

The tough part is finding the culprit.

I suggest removing all the drivers in safemode and then reboot, and install one driver at a time till you get the error again.

If you need to change drivers while in windows normal mode you can get to the device manager by right clicking my computer and selecting properties with a left click. this will open a section with tabs, one of the tabs will have the device manager button on it.
