Help! I'm having this same issue and for what I do on the computer it REALLY messes me up! What did you do with quickset.exe?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Prevent it from starting.

Start > Type 'MSConfig' into the search bar.

Go to the 'Startup' tab, find quickset, and disable it.

Then, hit CTRL+Shift+Delete, and find QuickSet in the task manager, and kill it.

Good to go.

The registry fix does not match what I have in my registry.

The quickset.exe does not work because there is no quickset.exe in my start up.

Any other ideas?

I looked up quickset and there's nothing about the caps lock. I'm disabling the msconfig entry and hope it works. THanks for the info
