Windows 7: Laptop acting strange

Laptop acting strange

About a week ago my laptop has started to act really strange.

IL give a few examples.
One is when I left click to say open Firefox from a shortcut on the desktop. When I go to double left click to open Firefox up pops a screen asking me to confirm id like to delete the shortcut.
The keyboard is not working correctly. Like the keys at the bottom wont work. When I hit them I just get a beep noise. Also if I am in Firefox and I start to type if I hit the letter D(Example) up pops a screen asking me to bookmark the page. (There just a couple of the things as examples that happen, there r more)

I have done a clean install of Windows 7 but its still the same, I have ren a load of virus and spyware programs and noting has changed. I am at a total loss of what to do... I cant fix this myself it seems. Can anyone help me out on what might be wrong and what I need to do to try fix it?

I really hope someone can help, Im lost here :-/

Sounds like you have spilt a cup of coffe on the keyboard! Seriously is this possible? There is treally no point in running "loads" of AV's. Just one will do. Did you have an AV running before this problem started as you could now have a bug in the BIOS!

I think your keyboard is acting up. Try opening notepad and try all the keys, including capslock, ctrl, shift keys for symbols. Check keyboard section in control panel and you have a standard keyboard layout installed.

Check to see for any stuck keys. Blow hard with air underneath keyboard to remove any dirt. Check all keys are moving properly.
