Keyboard keys repeating

Hello everyone!

I've been having this problem for some time now. I've gone through at least 4 keyboards trying to see if that will fix the problem, but nothing has helped. Whenever I press 2 or more keys in a game, those keys stick. My character will spin in circles or run sideways without me even touching my keyboard.
I've noticed that it isn't only when I play games, either. I went to look it up on Google and the E key went nuts! It repeated about 6 times before it stopped on its own.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've run Malwarebytes as suggested by some people, turned off sticky keys and checking my drivers. I'm currently using a Dell factory keyboard after throwing away one of my older gaming ones.
Thanks in advance!

    Windows 7/8
    Click on start.
    Click on control panel.
    In the search bar of the control panel window (top right)
    Type: Keyboard.
    Under character repeat, move the repeat delay slider to the left or right to increase or decrease how long you must hold down a key before the keyboard character repeats, and then click OK.
    Now your going to say awe Heck, it was never that simple was it.
    Hope it sorts the problem out, it should do.
    Its a shame about all the keyboards though if it is the problem.

    Thank you so much! Now I don't have to be afraid of buying an expensive keyboard! :D
