Why aren't you using the replace sticky keys trick?

You need a windows boot disc of some sort for that.

The windows 7 installation iso is around on the net.

Burn that to dvd - boot it up - when you see a window that says "Install Now", press shift+F10 - command prompt will come up - then do the sticky keys thing .

Slightly off topic and my two-penny bit on passwords. I think it is no use being paranoid about passwords. There may bad guys in the wild but mostly they don't target the lowly home user.

I have 4 hard to crack passwords that I use everywhere instead of managing hundreds of them. So far in over a decade I have not come to grief due to using only a few passwords everywhere. With just four passwords forgetting them is out of question. One of the four will always open up the box of treasures.

Well if someone ever figures out your password for at least one of your accounts, they now have the password to multiple accounts of yours. I remember seeing my friend putting in his email and password on his xbox, and one day I decided to mess with him by putting in that same email and password on facebook and sure enough, I was logged in his account and messed with his status lol a reason why I like to keep my passwords difficult
