Whenever I hit a key on the keyboard, a menu pops open, a programs pops up,
or somehow 2 keys are acted as they were pressed simutanesly. For instance,
when I hit enter, Windows Media Player pops up, when I hit right shift, the
right-click menu pops up. When I hit 6 on the keypad, a 6 and a slash
appear.(\6)(\66\6\). I think somehow my keyboard has been reprogrammed
because my anti-virus expired back in January. Is there a way to fix this
problem?

If you suspect your antivirus what happened when you resubscribed or
installed another program?

After I posted this topic, I installed virusscan from AOL. I had it scan but
it could not detect anything

had this a while ago. a member of my beloved family decided to spill some
drops of coke on the kb, this went between the 3 layers of the print below
the keys. resulted in traces of copper oxide & sugar syrup. had to use
another kb later.
