Packard Bell had to produce this software because they had intelligently made a whole load of laptops on which there was no convenient indicator showing whether caps lock and other similar functions were on or not (most other machines have LEDs somewhere on the keyboard surface). D'oh! It would have been a gazillion times better if the software displayed the information somewhere convenient on the screen (say in the system tray), but, hey, I guess if you're not clever enough to build a PC with caps lock, num lock and touchpad lock indicators on the surface of the hardware box, you're probably too stupid to think of that too.
