    Help! Keyboard aint right...

    I am in desperate need of a fix for my keyboard. For some reason, when I hit the "enter" key it refuses to scroll down. I cant start a new paragraph or anything. Thinking that the keyboard was screwed up, I got a new one, and still neither one of the "enter" keys is working correctly. Anyone got any ideas as to why and what will fix it? Thanks.

    Are you a gunsmith trying to fix electronics? I think that's your problem. :)

    Last time my electronic thingie went south I fixed it with a sledge hammer--permanently. The neighbors always run inside when I come out now.

    Got it fixed. It was a compatibility issue with IE10. I just added the website to it and it took care of it.

    One thing I do not have patience for is computers.

    I just switched to Windows 8. I'm constantly saying "WHAT JUST HAPPENED?"

    Computers make me feel so stupid.

    IE is some seriously bloated, poorly-written software. Switch to Chrome or Firefox and you'll probably find that your system runs much better.

    Vote for Firefox here. Install the AdBlock plugin and you'll never see another ad while browsing again. It even skip YouTube's in video ads.

    Internet Exploder is a horrible abomination, as stated by WHEC.

    I'm with Whec on this one. We use IE at work and it stinks. I used to use Firefox at home and it was better than IE but still just OK. Chrome or its non-Google counterpart Iron is MUCH better.

    Glad this worked out. I sure as heck wasn't going to intervene; I was going to call the Geek Squad and be a good witness.

    I vote you switch to Chrome or Firefox. IE is crap, and IE10 is far worse than IE9 ever was. I work in computer support for a living and have seen countless problems resolved by rolling IE10 back to IE9 or 8.

    +1. That was pretty clever.
