  1. i could upload a list of the programs removed if you like
  2. thats fixed thanks for everyone who helped figure it out now the job of reinstsalling steam etc
  3. yeah that makes more sense but in windows 8 i can't remember anyway other than uninstalling each individual program one at time do you have any how to do it in windows 8
  4. safe ode does seem to improve the situation for thief but was unable to launch portal to test even after enabling networking so i tried running shadowgrounds to see if the issue was removed from steam and it seems to be fine minus framerate issues so I'm just trying to work out what safemode disabled to fix the issue now my first thought is maybe just refreshing my OS or maybe running a Linux portion and seeing if that improves the situation at all
  5. i know the only thing i haven't tried a clean install of the OS do you think that could ork
  6. sorry for not replying been a bi busy over Christmas but yeah i've run my anti viruse kerspersky ( both on old system and on new one and all hard drives ) and nothing came up and yeah it works fine in word notepad firefo etc and games work fine with mouse inputs or controller imputs but i can only move with keyboard with one of the most awkward hand positions i have ever used which is not greart for prolonged sessions in terms of movement without the keys presssed control or shift (shift isn't even a sure fix for some games) down if it moves it will be unbelievably slow i'd say about 20 to 30 times slower than normal i've run the steam cache check and all was apparently validated fine but the problem still persits and yeah i agree this is proably not the place for this kind of question but when i came acrosss this issue as it is so rare it isn't really diacussed on the internet an no on i know had any idea of where to go to get answers so i thought this might be the best bet i have tried to reinstall steam clean i had more different usb keyboards and updated all drivers but still no luck so here i am hoping for some kind of suggesting of what could fix it
  7. Hi i'm posting here as i couldn't think of a much better place tio ask these questions. Back in 2011 i noticwed some odd issues when trying to play a pirated version of minecraft which i borowed from a friend to see if my at the time crappy laptop would run it resaonablely before the purchase of the full game, in that i could only move my character by holding down either control or shift i could interact with my mouse fine but the use of my keyboard was only possible when i was holding down either of these keys as well natural i put it down to a bad cracked copy and put it asiede then when the humble bundle came outin may 2012 i took advantage of the deal and got some classics to add to my collection that would still run on a terrible laptop but after i had launched limbo i noticed the issues that were present in minecraft srtill existed in this legitimate steam game i then tried to launch braid and portal( a game i had before the issue exsited) and found that the issue was prevalent in all games so i decied to persevere and just play my way through limbo and after that laptops motherboard failed and i was put onto the familes (posibably worse than my old laptop) windows 8 laptop i thought the issue was over so i just went about everything fine. However when i reinstalled portal 2 adding it into m my steam library from m old laptops harddrive onto my laptop last month after playing a lot of civ 5 until then i noticed the issue had returened i fixed for portal 2 by pluging in my xbox 360 controller into my laptop. Then i was looking through gog today to see if anything interesting was on sale and i saw theif gold eddition was their for $2.50 so thought it was well worth it but after downloading and installing it i discovered the issue was still present and i can't relly just plug a controller in to fix it this time as the game has no native controller support i've been looking into buying a proper pc for a while but refuse to until this issue is resolved does anyone know why this issue might have happened and if there is anyway to fix it. As you can see the issue is present in notjust steam games but individual titles sorry for poor spelling grammar or for rambilling i didn't post this in the troubleshooting subforrum because it would not allow me i will happily provide any additional infomation.
