Hello,
Accidentally..of course.... I clicked shift five times on my generic keyboard for my pc that uses windows xp home edition. It opened up the sticky keys menu and somehow I accidentally clicked on something within that folder that disabled the keyboard. Any time I press any key it just makes a "click like" beeping noise. How do I reverse what I did?!?

Unfortunately, no clock-like icon, but your answer gave me enough information to know to go to Accessibility Options. IMHO, what a stupid, stupid thing to be able to disable your keyboard in Windows. Thank God I had another computer.
