Do you have more than one account on your computer? If not, create a new account and see if you have the problem on the new user account.

That means the profile is somehow corrupted, or something else is interfering somehow. What is getting loaded during startup? What's listed in your msconfig file? When's the last time you did a virus scan?

Use the "Alt" and "shift" key by holding down for a few seconds. Also try the "ctrl" and "shift" at same time for a few seconds, should do the trick.
