Windows 7: My keyboard is not responding in games (how to fix it)

My keyboard is not responding in games (how to fix it)

This fix is time consuming but useful as a last resort.
The problem can be caused by any program that interacts with your keyboard including key loggers. Assuming that a virus scan fails, you will have to remove the offending processes manually. To find out which process is causing the problem you will have to test each one by ending it in task manager.

1. Open task manager.
2. End the first 10 background processes, then try to play the game.
3. Repeat step two Until the game is playable. You have now narrowed down the offending process.
4. Restart the computer.
5. End the last 10 processes that you previously ended individually, testing the keyboard in game after each one.
6. You have now identified which process has caused the problem. You can now delete its program, or end it each time you want to play games.

Good luck
