    Windows 8.1


    No development :-(
    I open Microsoft excel and this is what I see
    Same with MSWord also
    excel has detected you are holding down the control key do you want to start it in safe mode
    Spent more than 6 hours on this issue.. Have an assignment to do. Service desk guy says it is because of the moisture! If it is because of the moisture, how can it work for 10 minutes everytime!
    Guys, can you help me with more solutions ..

    Midou
    I tried everything else possible
    Still no use
    I tried the following things
    Set the language to US only and delete all other languages
    Disable touch pad
    Disable sticky keys
    Run in safe mode
    Closing and opening the on_screen keyboard
    running chkdsk
    all drivers are uptodate>
    I am yet to figure out the solution>
    The problem I understand is there is some key like Ctrl or Shift that is being automatically pressed

    The highlighted part in above quote shows quite clearly that you have an issue with your keyboard, a physical issue. CTRL key is stuck. There's no other solution than to fix the keyboard or to get a new one; no setting or registry entry can fix a stuck key.

    Thanks Kari. I assumed the attached USB keyboard would override that, but I see now it doesn't. And I guess there's no system speaker constant warning beep for such on some systems?
