Windows 7: Problem: Automatic shutdown

21 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise Version 6.1 x64
Problem: Automatic shutdown

Hello there!
I have a problem that drives me crazy!!! Yesterday I decided to clean my keyboard. I didn’t disassemble it – I only clean the surface with pure alcohol (ethanol) and cotton. BUT: since then the computer begins to behave odd. When I open Adobe Photoshop and want to use the Ctrl+T combination or Ctrl+Backspace the computer tries to shutdown automatically. I wrote “tries” because the opened file in Photoshop stops him. I mean – it appears a window, which asks if I want to save the changes of the file. If I don’t answer immediately, on the screen popup the window with a list of all the opened programs and the options – “force shut down” and “cancel”. I choose “cancel”. And a couple of minutes later everything begins all over again.
What should I do? I try to dry the keyboard with a hair-drier in case there is something left, I put it on the sun too. And now I’m clueless.
Please, help me!

Ps. Excuse me if I make mistakes in English, but this is not my mother tongue.
