I have two computers hooked up to 1 mouse, 1 keyboard, and 1 moniter. 1 running Windows 7 pro with 64 bit 8 gb. Ram , Intel i5 ,the other running xp. I can type into dosbox on the xp computer, not on the windows 7. I read all the help I could find and tried them all. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Search on line for instructions for displaying hidden devices in the Windows Device Manager. In the Device Manager, with hidden devices displayed, delete any "ghost" keyboard drivers that may be present.

with the help of a tech from goggames I got this solved. The problem is a service called ENTRY PROJECT by SENTRY BAY witch is encluded with AOL SHIELD. It is an anti keylogging program. I went to msconfig, and turned it off, now my games run great. I have sent an e-mail to aol to see if there is an easy way to turn it on & off

Thanks for the info but only one thread is necessary.

I think the most important takeaway is that Aol is still alive.
