Windows 7: Weird mouse behaviour

OK. It is the SHIFT key. It was fine all morning. I went out for about 5 hours, came back - and viola, the problem occurred. I banged the SHIFT key a few times and the problem was solved - whereas before I rebooted or logged-off/on to fix it. So it is that SHIFT key - but what I don't inderstand is why rebooting or logging off/on should fix it. Surely if it's stuck, then it's really stuck. Rebooting etc. is not gonna unstick it !?!?!?

That is a good question.

Maybe it works on a "change of state" principle.
If the key is stuck during boot up, maybe the PC ignores the key signal until it changes again.

Weird window behaviour?
I think that in Win 7 the windows behave in a weird way. I'm not sure, perhaps it's something to do with that aero functionality. I often click and drag, trying to adjust something with a slider, going back and forth several times to find the optimal value, or dragging layers up and down a list...
