Windows 7: R and S get stuck while playing games

R and S get stuck while playing games

So I have a bit of a weird problem, just got my new rig I installed windows 7 on it, installed steam and went to play me some portal 2 (like the rest of the world), but when I pressed S it got stuck walking back, I got out of Portal 2 and got onto notepad and pressed S and it was ok, fine then I'll deal with it later (I thought), and then I installed Counter Strike Source, so I pressed S and it started to walk back on it's own, I shot a few bullets and pressed R it started to reload on it's own, so I left the game paused went on the web and tried to find something (a solution perhaps) when I got back into the game not S or R were working... so I tried this like a million times, R and S get stuck if I alt+tab and get back they stop working, also even when I pause Counter strike Source it keeps running back (the menu shows on top of the game) if it's paused the keyboard focus should go to the menu (Nor A, D or W works to move the char on the menu...) so What am I doing wrong? First thing I did was update windows to the latest possible version, did not fix my problem at all, I don't think it's a problem with steam, so any thoughts?

Keyboard is PS2 and mouse is USB 3200 DPI, using Windows 7 ultimate x64

Problem solved it was fraps, bottom line don't use ctrl+something on fraps or bad things will happen, I hope in the next update they solve this, if not I'll send them a message, if anyone have a similar issue, now you know shy your keys are getting stuck it's fraps having a problem with the commands

thanks for reporting back.

quick tip: when i use fraps, i set the record button to be 'scroll lock', so a little light comes on my keyboard letting me know that i'm in 'record mode'.

I forgot to post the link before, they fixed it a while ago:

Fraps 3.4.1 - 2nd Apr 2011
- Fixed crash when starting Fraps for some users
- Fixed hotkeys not being detected when modifier keys held
- Fixed keys getting stuck when used by both the game and Fraps

Link to the changelog News - Fraps Updates & Changelog "Might have changed because it's dynamic"

if you have fraps update newest version as soon as it's out, because ou never know...

Fraps is Evil...

Seriously though... if and when I do use Fraps, I always check that I am not going to be using any of the keys I use when I play, thus, avoiding this issues. Don't get me wrong, I do this mainly because, somehow, at some point... I did ran into this problem
