Right shift key problem

I recently upgraded to windows 7, and my iwin game "family feud" will not allow me to use the right shift key. this wouldnt normally be that big of an issue, but you need to use the right shift key to "buzz in" and there is no option to change the buzz in key... my right shift key works fine in all other aspects of windows 7... i need help pleeease

Hi and welcome sean

If it works in other situations it is the game. there might be something else already using right shift. there are apps that will let you configure what key a particular app does with the keys.

Shift 2
My advice....Don't bother! Managed to get it a day early , what a let down. To me the graphics seem even inferior to the original Shift. Car handling not impressive. No wow factor what so ever.
