hm, you've already posted most of my reasons to pull my hair in desperation when I'm in front of a computer... the only one I can think of that isn't here is when photoshop suddenly decides the psd I made WITH IT is not a compatible file...

Accidentally hitting the insert key and not realising bugs me. Then I try typing something, go back to add a sentence or whatever and I've deleted half of what I've written before I've noticed. Bah.

Annoying keys to accidentally hit:
1. Insert Key.
2. F11, especially before you learn about it.
3. Windows Key.
4. Caps Lock.

I have a love/hate relationship when 'it' happens to me...

I click on a link to see gameplay of God of War, or to see a preview of a new movie, and I get this:

Hmm, for me...
When I can't delete a folder =\ It'll say it's in use, even though i can delete everything inside it without a problem. Gotta reboot before deleting.
And also...the D key on my laptop is really stiff, so when typing I'll miss out a lot of D's and end up with words like understan, shoul, coul, and woul.
Also, I organize everything in folders.
EVERYTHING.

My laptop has a fingerprint scanner (to use instead of actually typing your passwords). It's RIGHT BELOW the touchpad, between the left and right buttons. If I accidentally move my hand over the scanner, the conputer feels the need to beep at me and display a fingerprint logo. This isn't too bad, but sometimes it will decide this means the same as clicking the back button in IE, and if I am playing a game that takes up the whole screen it will minimize the game in order to beep at me.

(Failcomp issue, not browser issue) I hate it when once in a while, I try to play certain resource heavy websites (usually flash games) and Opera will crash, then ask me what was the last thing I was doing before it crashed.

Frikin ADD laptop. :\
