Alo alo, been having a bit of a problem with my windows key on my keyboard the past few days. All of a sudden my computer seems to have assigned a shortcut to my windows key which causes an instant shutdown. No idea how this would have happened or whether its a hardware or software related issue. Can anyone offer a fix because its getting really really annoying. Cheers in advance,
Stu

As in instant...the PC turns off immediately, or does it go through the shutdown process still?

I am at work at the moment, and the shutdown executable is located in C:Windows\System32\shutdown.exe in XP, don't know about VISTA/7...I assume the same

Usually keyboard shortcuts consist of Ctrl+Alt + Key, rather than a single key stroke


Sounds suspicious to me....maybe do a virus/spyware scan

Silly silly me, turns out it was hardware related. Old keyboard must have just kicked the bucket. Bought a little Logitech K200 multimedia keyboard, problem solved :D
