Windows 7: Why would my shift key be moving my cursor

Why would my shift key be moving my cursor

When typing, my shift keys are moving my typing cursor. So, when I'm trying to capitalize or use a special character, the left shift key moves the cursor to the left and my right shift key moves it to the end of the sentence.

My computer settings are correct and there are no active locks set on my keyboard (like caps lock or num loc)k, I've already checked.

However, as a student trying to write enormous essays, this is quite irritating so any suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated.

I am running Windows 7 Home 64bit and the keyboard is a Hip Street model HS-KB050 .

Moving from Vista to W7 my cursor now jumps around
I have recently upgraded from Windows Vista to W7. Most things are working fine except that my cursor seems to be hyper-sensitive, jumps around without any apparent cause and makes using any typing programme a real chore as it will erase things onscreen if I don't watch every word I am typing or...
