Since the problem seems to be confined to the use of the keyboard, have you tried using a spare keyboard to see if the problem contines? If it does, that would suggest that either a program or driver is at fault, and you would have to do a clean boot confirm whether it is or not. If it is, then you would have to reenable those items one at a time, or in alternating blocks until you could determine which is the cause, and either reinstall or eliminate it.
