Windows 7: Annoying thing in windows

Annoying thing in windows

I sometimes encounter an annoying problem that makes me reset the computer everytime that it happens, the problem is that somehow the keyboard buttons are becoming shortcuts. each button opens something else , for example F1 opens help, the letters on keyboard open different windows . Is it a feature that makes the keyboard buttons into shortcuts ? how to cancel it?

The F keys are perfoming a function, hence the letter "F"> That's what they are for. But individual keys should only dispay their letter or number not a shortcut. What individual letter do this and are you sure you are not using the ALT and or CTRL keys as well as a letter key?

Do you have any kind of software installed to manage or configure the keyboard?

I don't have any software like that.
not only the functions keys open stuff, but many of the letters and without pressing anything else, I just don't remember what each letter opens because I reset already , but some letters just open my browser, or other softwares etc and that happened to me alot and not only in this computer, can it be a button stuck or something? or maybe sticky keys activated or some hidden windows feature? I just can't find what it is
