I am currently up to NTP 4.95 on XP Pro and have never seen this sort of
behaviour. Sounds like you might have the typomatic rate set too high - a
control found both in the BIOS and in the Control Panel of XP Pro. For the
Control Panel option, go to:
Start -> Crontol Panel -> Keyboard
You will find a repeat delay control, repeat rate control, and a space to
test it out just below that. Play with it to get the rate you are looking
for. Note that below that is a cursor blink rate control, and has nothing
to do with the speed in which the key presses are repeated - just in how
fast they are displayed on the screen.
For the BIOS option, you will have to consult the hardware book you got
with your computer/motherboard on how to get into the BIOS and where the
typomatic control is. Usually, you can ignore this and make all of your
adjustments within the Windows Control Panel, but if you can't get the
repeat speed down to a rate you want, you may have to adjust the hardware
side and then try the Control Panel option again.
Thought for the day: One that would have the fruit must climb the tree.
