We don't see anything in your System Specs about the computer but a couple of things, one is whether other things/programs work properly and the other is whether using a different keyboard layout such as Dvorak or different language. Also, have you tried a different keyboard? When I see typing issues the first thing I do is shut the computer down and pull the power cord and keyboard/mouse cords out, wait a couple of minutes then put everything back and try again.

Hi Waran,

It appears your Ctrl button is being held down when you type. A bit like how holding shift and typing produces different characters.

Try a new keyboard?
