have you tried using the tab key to select an icon in control panel then using the arrow keys to move around between the icons. once open you can tab through the fields to turn it off... this is how some of us older types used to have to do everything as there wasn't a mouse on my first 2 computers

i got it... just a simple reboot did it. Yes i know how to use a computer without a mouse - I had to use one without a mouse for 2 years; when i was 3!! I know keyboard shortcuts VERY well. Not all young people are dumb :-)

ok smarty - the reason for the subject line being in lower case is probably due to the admin setting so that SPAMMERS CANT MAKE SUBJECTS LIKE THIS!! HEY LOOK AT MY THREAD! I CAN TYPE CAPS TO GET YOUR ATTENTION MORE THAN ANYONE ELSES!!

Holding shift for 8 seconds will turn on StickyKeys which holds down ctrl, alt or shift for you so you can type without holding it, for people who can't hold shift down and try to type an exclamation point.

Think a little bit more deep when you try to be smarter than someone else.
