Windows 7: ctrl key makes any browser go to homepage

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit
ctrl key makes any browser go to homepage

hi, i found this weird behaviour on my keyboard recently and it's really starting to annoy me.

when i press the ctrl key any browser im using would go to the homepage.

i've tried pressing the ctrl key on my on-screen keyboard but it does not make the browser go to homepage so im thinking maybe my keyboard is broken. i also tried to look at the computer management and tried to scan for hardware changes but it always say that driver failed to install. maybe that's it? i also tried managing keyboard and language in control panel but the only installed keyboard is the one im using right now.

im at wits end. can anyone help?
