I don't know why but when I'm holding down shift the "j" button does nothing at all. In order to make a capital j I have to caps lock it then turn caps lock off again.

I thought maybe my laptop keyboard was dusty or something so I plugged a usb keyboard in and it had the exact same problem.

Anyone know the reason? Its Windows Vista if that makes a difference.

Could it be a program interfering with the key hooks?

Try performing a selective startup to eliminate that as a possibility.

Also, have you rebooted since this problem arose?

Ya its been a problem for awhile, over many computer resets. I just haven't been able to figure out whats wrong. I'll try the selective start up and turn everything off that isn't windows oriented and see if that works.
