    Default keyboard confusion

    Hi,
    I started using zonealaarm extreme security 2010 9.1.008.000 back in december. About the same time I got at&t dsl after having dial up for years. Anyway soon after getting extreme sec., and dsl, I started having occasional problems with my keyboard. It gets "confused", by this I mean that if I hit the "f" key or the "g" key another charachter pops up. If I hit a key multiple times, it spells out "querty".
    This seems to happen when I am connected online, & there seems to be a lot of cpu usage t the same time as this is going on.
    This is happening on my desktop pc, as well as my gateway laptop, and my brand new compaq laptop(wirelessly connected).
    Sometimes I have to shutdown, or unplug the keyboard to get rid of the problem
    Could this be virus activity, an at&t problem, or a zonealarm problem?

    This is an easy Fix, that Occure on a few Computers..

    This Bug has been Fixed in the BETA Test version of the next Version of ZA Extreme..

    Go into ZA Menu and Click on Browser Security, then click on "Settings"
    now click on "Advanced" and UN-CHECK..
    "Block Programs that secreatly record your keystrokes"

    Now.. Click OK, and exit ZA Menu..

    Thanks, I will give it a try.
    When the next program update comes out, do I go back in and Check that box again? (seems like something that should be blocked)
    Is there any significant risk in leaving the "block programs that secretly record keystrokes" unchecked?
