Windows 7: When pressing the "c" key it displays either mvx, c'/

When pressing the "c" key it displays either mvx, c'/

When pressing the "c" key it displays either mvx or c'/. Sometimes other letters and symbols are displayed as well. I think it might be a Registry problem but don't really know my way around. It does not always do this but when it does do it,it is really annoying and difficult to do many things. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in Advance, Peter.

Does only the one key type the wrong character? Could be a dirty contact. If this is a desktop, try the keyboard on another computer.

yes, only the one key types the wrong characters, no, it is a laptop, and when it types the wrong character it can either type "mvx(enter)" or "c'/" or the letter "c" depending on how much it would like to annoy me.

It used to do this a while ago, but then stopped for ages and has only now started doing it again.

Try the On Screen Keyboard. It is in All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access. If that works properly, then it is a keyboard problem.

On-Screen Keyboard
Could not start On-Screen Keyboard. Error.

This has never happened before, I think it is registry issue, what should that part of my registry look like.

Try an sfc /scannow in elevated Command Prompt. Maybe it can fix it.

Tried this and it did not detect any issues.

Do you have any other keyboard that you could try - or any live CD (to exclude an OS problem).

It is not the keyboard, when I turn my computer on at first the "c" key malfunctions but after a few hours it starts to work again with no sign of it not working.
