Gmail assistant interferences with keyboard

    I have just installed the Gmail assistant. However, I have problems using it. When it's started (icon in the status bar), I cannot write correctly in any program. For example, when writing a mail with my mail program or with Word, the letters typed on my keyboard appear different on the screen. For example, instead of writing "this is a test", it shows "thi6 ir 3 te5g" or whatever. It doesn't show what I write. I can wait for a second and then type the letter and it works, but hey... who wants to wait 1 second for each letter when typing a mail or a letter.... ;-)

    What's wrong there???  I have WinXP German version Home edition SP3.

    I would like to use this gmail assistant, but not in this way.

    When I exit it, all returns to normal and I can write as before.

      It's probably the num lock blinking notification, disable that for all your accounts and hit the num lock key if you are still seeing the problem

      Hi cramsmreh,

      Thank you for your interest in GmailAssistant!

      I think wealas is right; the problem you are experiencing is probably caused by the "Blink keyboard LED" alert, specifically on a laptop with multifunction keys.
