yes, I am quite sure he wasn't being sarcastic with the "thank you for your contribution" part :)

I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

edit: So I did restart and it is now fixed. I became aware of the problem after installing a game and not being able to log on. Once I opened my web browser to see why I was getting a network error code I noticed that everything was being typed backwards. So I searched and found this thread, very helpful. I was not aware of this community and hope to stick around. Hope I learn and also help others.

BTW it occured after using nRPG.com's server to download 12sky2.

it was typing backwards probably because something was constantly causing "Home" to be pressed.

    When this happened to me, nothing was pressing "home" on my keyboard. And rebooting was the only solution that appeared to work.

    Unless there is some hotkey that I'm not aware of. Like flipping your monitor display upside down. That one is still a popular prank. Someone did it to the computer at Blockbuster the other day. They had no idea what to do.

    Yes, I remember in school it happened, and the teacher who fixes them was sitting there for hours, in the end he shutdown the computer, and took out the MS DOS battery ...
