    Does anyone know of another way to stop the Sticky keys being activated (ie pressing SHIFT five times) cos when the dialog box pops up and I click Settings...nothing happens...no idea why :rolleyes: so I was wondering if there was another way to get rid of this damn thing...thanks all :biggrin

    I don't think there is a way of getting rid of the accessibility options Noel. I had a look but it appears they are there as part of the standard OS in XP.

    Can't you remove Accessibility via Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows components ? It's deff an option you can add, so one would imagine it can be removed in the same way.

    I tried that Gav but it isn't there in the add/remove list, though I am sure it used to be in earlier OSs :blink

    Going into Control Panel only takes you to the same applet that pops up when you hit the shift 5 times. So if Noel can't access the settings to turn it off there, I wouldn't have thought he could through Control Panel either.

    What's the score Noel, can you access the settings from the CP applet?

    Hmm, I found the same too - I might be thinking that it's an option available during initial install ? Might be doing an XP install soon, so will take note then.

    Yeah, Accessibiliy options were definitely Add/Removeable in Win 9x (not sure about 2k or ME).
    If you want a slightly more permanent solution you can edit the registry as per this link:

    Removing Accessibilty Options forever

    EDIT: Just found this on the MS site as well:
    I'm guessing that goes for XP Home also.
