Hello everyone. I have a Dell Laptop that was brought to me by a friend with issues that look similar to sticky key settings. However when I went into the Ease of Access center Sticky Keys was disabled. I tried turning it on, applying the change, turning it back off, applying the change and still nothing. I tried a virus scan that brought back a clean scan.
I then created a new user account. When I logged into the new user account the keyboard worked properly!! At this point I could switch users to the original and it would continue working correctly. However once I restarted the computer it would go back to messing up. After the restart I could go into either account first and it would have the issue. However if I switched users then the second accessed account would work fine.
I decided to go into the registry and edit the value of the flags for sticky keys to 506(disable value). Exit reg edit and it works, however on reboot it goes back to messing up.
Any ideas or suggestions? I thought about moving all the data over to a new user account and removing the original, but once I noticed it was still doing the same thing on a new account(if chosen first from the sign in screen) then I decided to hold off on that idea.
