Windows key randomly acts as if it is being held down

Hello so sometimes my windows key acts like it is being pressed down and when I try typing my keyboard just starts doing shortcuts. For example I Will hit the L button and it will lock my computer. I know it is the windows key because I looked at the on screen key board and it shows the key as if i is being held down. This problem can happen the first minute I turn on my computer to a few hours after. The only way to temporally fix is by spamming the windows key this only fixes it for a few seconds though. I also know it is not my keyboard because even when it is unplugged it does this. I am really in need of a fix because making me lock my computer and randomly opening windows is really annoying.

  1. Did you scan your computer for any malware/spyware, and if you can try using another keyboard.

    Yes I did both of those and none of them fixed it. I waswondering if I could disable the windows key if that would fix it. I don't use that key anyways
