My customer has a "u" in his password and since Sunday last whenever he types the "u" the Ease of Access window pops up and narrator starts but the window can only be dismissed after several attempts.
The ease of Access window still pops up whenever a "u" is typed irrespective of the application.
Sys Restore does not resolve the problem.
Changing the EA applet in CP doesn't work because it is already off.
There is nothing in MSCONFIG that can be changed.
The workaround, for the moment is to hold the Windows key down when typing the "u" and the EA window will not appear for the logged in session.
Looking on the web shows that this is a known problem, there are even suggestions that MS have known about this for several years and recommended that employees avoid using a "u" in their password! Surely this is scurrilous :-(
