    I was just reading a very good article about safe web practices when up pops a notification about something called 'getkey state'.
    I didn't find anything informative online so I thought I'd check here.
    Thanks.

    GetKeyState() is an API for retrieving the status of a key; on MSDN. Not sure if this is what you were looking for. :)

    Yep and if you do get a popup like that be warned. It could mean something is trying to capture your keystrokes.
