Windows 7: Keyboard malfunctioning "specific keys"

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1
Keyboard malfunctioning "specific keys"

1q 2w 3e 4r 7u 8i 9o 0p
1 2 3 4 7 8 9 0

So my keyboard is acting up weird, when i try to type something normal for example

"Pokemon" it will type "0p9ok3em9on" So yea, ignore the numbers and you will see, also same vice verse with the corresponding numbers shown beside the letter.
I am sure it is not a virus, very possibly sure. The only way for me to type "normal" is to have caps lock on and press shift at the time I press a letter.

Edit: Okay my keyboard is back to normal, you can delete this post if you want, but I think the cause of it was the windex I used to clean the screen and keyboard, my damn cat is always licking the screen trying to get the mouse. But yea I will be careful next time on amount of windex I use.
