Windows 7: Sticky keys screwed up my PC.

Sticky keys screwed up my PC.

Hi, for some reason when I pressed shift five times the option still popped up even though I'm pretty sure it was set to off. I clicked "yes" I want to enable sticky keys. Now it screwed up my PC.

When I want to hit say the windows button for some reason I have to hit it twice to open it and close it. Moreover if I am in a video game my movement and everything is screwed up my mouse goes nuts and I lose control over it.

How can I undo this?

Why did you select Yes when you knew you did not want to use Sticky Key?

But I remembered sticky keys as being like using shift to do stuff like capitalize and other stuff like that such as ctrl alt del. Anyways I turned it off now.
