Hi, Hope you are able to help, I pressed my Right shift key (too long) and was prompted about turning on filter keys i pressed cancel so they would not come on but now my Mouse is playing up, the wheel is causing pages to flick forwards and backwards and i cant click on anything as it selects everything, System restore wont work as it wont allow me to click on anything on the page. I have tried turning off filter keys but nothing seems to help!!
Hope someone has a solution

This is is a very old post, but I'll suggest a solution in case someone has a similar problem in the future:

Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.
