Hi my application key keeps popping up and its really ANNOYING. I can't type cause it keeps popping up. I know its not my keyboard cause I unplugged it and it still happens. And it only happens sometimes, and by sometimes i mean like every SECOND. Sorry about caps but its frustrating trying to write this post but having to press esc. every other letter to make it disappear. Some times i have to press esc. 20x b4 it goes away to pop up again in like 1-2 seconds. REALLY ANNOYING. PLEASE HELP. :thumbsup: Also I have run combo fix and I have uploaded the log if it helps. Thanks in advance.

Is this happening all the time or just in certain programs?
