    Ok I found the problem. I checked my task manager and there was this weird program. I forgot the name but I looked it up and it turns out it's some type of program for tablets so I ended it and now my shift works again!! I'm sure it'll show up again when I reboot. That's when I'll figure out how to get rid of it permanantly.
