Windows 7: Keyboad Shortcut Problem

Keyboad Shortcut Problem

Hey all!

Have a really strange problem I hope you can help with.

Turned on this computer for the first time in a few months and I'm experiencing a problem where pressing the "w" key on the keyboard displays a "launching internet" message on the screen and proceeds to launch explorer, chrome, and windows media viewer in 3 separate windows. I disabled sticky keys and all that jazz, still won't help.

It's making it impossible to use the computer as a few other keys are launching random things too. Anyone know what could cause this? Is there a way to restore my keyboard to default settings?

Any help would be instrumental, thanks!

Hiya!

Thanks for the welcome and reply.

A few things were discovered. Firstly, the OS is actually Vista 64 bit. I have quite a few computers in the house, must have confused it for another one. My apologies for posting on a 7 forum.

Secondly, your advice helped. I took out the HP keyboard and put in a Logitech G-510 and it was perfectly fine. Obviously this means it was a keyboard problem and not a OS problem.

The issue is fixed for now, but I would still love to know what's wrong with the other keyboard. I'll check the HP forums.

Thanks a bunch!

7 and vista are generally the same. Vista just sucks...

As far as your keyboard, make sure you don't have any keys that are stuck. If possible clean it out and test again. Test it on a different PC as well.
