Ok, so, a while back my keyboard started acting really weird. It usually happens for the first 30 minutes when I turn my computer on, but can go on for hours. I believe it to be a computer problem though, since the same happens when I use the on screen keyboard.

So, when the problem is active, if I press E, My Computer opens, F opens Search, R opens Run, D goes to the desktop, M minimizes the current window, and Tab deselects the current window. My left Shift, Ctrl and Alt keys also open the Start Menu at the slightest amount of pressure too. I mean the kind of pressure that just makes it rock slightly, and boom, Start Menu pops up to ruin my day, over, and over, and over again.

I haven't managed to find out on the internet what this problem is, although I've been led to Stickykeys a few times, though I really doubt it's that. It can't possibly be a dirty keyboard, because it stops after a random amount of time, and it can't be my keyboard malfunctioning because the on screen keyboard does exactly the same thing.

Need...help...........please...
