    You have the INSERT function on your keyboard enabled. Press the INSERT key one time and the problem should go away.

    lol, ever bothered looking down on the screen where you well usually see what's on and off, if you see the word "Insert" in black text, press the Insert button (or dubble click on the thing that says "Insert" and you should see it go to a grayes color ;)

    Actually I believe it says "OVR" not "Insert".
