Sounds like you also copied over some malware. Did you have those issues with the XP computer?

Seems funny replying to myself, but here I go. I found I had to go into my control panel, under ease of access, there is options for the keyboard. I had selected a delay between keystrokes. I just clicked them off and then apply. I didn't even have to reboot the computer. I had that problem for over a year. It's fixed now. I have no idea why I ever selected that before, but it's okay now. Thanks Anyway Teck Guys

Apparently, you found your answer here.
Think about it, if someone has a neuro-muscular disease and has some muscle control issues (shaking, etc), it may make keyboard use tolerable for them to use a computer. For your, annoying, for someone else, very thoughtful.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I expect that the delay of 30 seconds reported in the original post is the
maximum possible value for that setting, and a delay of one or two seconds
would be more usual.
