    Every time i click shift, command, option and control the symbole pops up on my screen and it locks and i have to click it again. I was just wondering how to turn off so it doesnt do this. It gets really irritating.

    What symbol, what locks, and why the heck are you doing that, anyway? It doesn't do anything on my MacBook Pro...

    Just to clarify, you're pressing them one at a time, and when for instance you press command, the command symbol pops up on screen and locks.

    If this is the case, I would be tempted to guess that it's something to do with the Universal Access controls.

    I don't think so, they probably use the same forum software.
