Stop stickykey hell

This is from my manager:

I don't know if you ever accidentally get into Windows "Filterkeys" mode, but if you press both shift keys at once, or one shift key for 8 seconds, you go into an accessibility mode in text is selected.

If like me, you never ever ever want this to happen, go into Control Panel>Accessibility options>Keyboard>Filterkeys settings button>Uncheck "keyboard shortcut"

I turn off the rest of them too – I have absent-mindedly tapped the shift key a few times and gone into "StickyKey" hell.
