Hello,

 

I have a annoying new off/on problem.

When I press "Ctrl" key, my Outlook will start open. Not once, but for every time I hit "Ctrl".

That often gives a lot of Windows to close  :smash:

 

Any ideas for me ?

If you reply me, please make it simple, I am no geek in pc.

 

Greetings from

What is the make and model of this computer?

 

Try doing a System Restore.

 

Click on the Start orb startorb_zpsvudtmgfg.png.
 
In the Search programs and files box type System Restore.
 
Under Programs right click on System Restore, then click on Run as administrator
 
When System Restore opens click on Next
 
You should now see your restore points listed by time and date, click on a restore point prior to the time your problem started, then click on Next.
 
Click on Finish to initiate the restore.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

 By the way,..... if I follow steps to restore, will ALL files not related to Windows still be on computer ?

It will not effect anything in Windows.  If you have made downloads after the date you select those will be uninstalled.

 

The restore points which are created are basically images of the operating system at the time they are made.  Doing a System restore for a specific date will produce an image at that time.
