    This is very strange I was looking for another folder in my users folder and I noticed that my NTUSER.DAT file is labeled as type 5KPLAYER.DAT same as the op.
    I uninstalled 5kplayer a while ago...
    ... I would like to change it back to what it is suppose to be if possible...
    In fact, any .DAT file will be shown as this type. This is because the uninstall was badly written and didn't delete 5kPlayer's registry entry for .DAT file associtiation. @Gelbs and @SDMF74, It's nothing of any consequence and has no effect on system operation, but if it annoys you then you can reset the default file associations for .DAT types with Option 2 here...

    This option will reset the associations, icon, and registry entries of the downloaded file type or protocol back to default.

    Also note that the boot process will die if it doesn't find ntuser.dat. There's usually 4 or 5 files in a User's Folder that shouldn't/can't be removed.

    What type of connection does the keyboard have, USB, USB Wireless or PS/2? Have you tried a different keyboard? Have you tried that keyboard on a different computer?

    Ahh no its a corsair k70 mech. It just started doing it, seems to be just the h key. I'll pop the key cap and clean it with some 91% rubbing alcohol should take care of it. Probably nothin serious and I hope this one dont go bad. I already had to exchange an mx red k70 cause it went completely dead. Last time I buy a corsair.......anything.

    Although they still make good ram and psu's but both are way overpriced. Thanks Again!
