Specs: WIN XP, SP1, Celeron 1.7 GHz, 768 SD R

HI...I have big problem with my keyboard. Sometimes...whenever i tape on it...I activate some kind of shortcuts on my computer. For example when I type "E"..."My computer" opens, when I type somethning else...some other program apper and open.
I don't know is it virus or not...I checked it with AVG and program founds nothing.
I formated partition C and reinstaled whole OS (WIN XP)...and problem didn't disappear.

SORRY FOR Y ENGLISH...anD WRITING WITH BIG LETTERS...SOMETIMES THIS IS SO ANNOYING...THAT I HAVE TO PRESS "SHIFT" ALL THE TIME, JUST TO TYPE...CAUZE I NOTICED WHEn...I HOLD SHIFT...I ALLMOST CAN TYPE WITHOUT ACTIVATING OTHER PROGRAMS. IT'S SO ANNOYING...I TYPED THIS 15 MINUTES.

If you formatted and reinstalled the OS, your keyboard is stuffed. Replace it with a new one...

I third the keyboard being the problem...

It actually sounds like your windows logo key is stuck down, when you hit the "E" key and the windows logo key at the same time explorer will open. That is assuming you have a windows logo / start key on your keyboard.

Short-cuts with windows key + other.

windows key + "E" key = shortcut to "computer" (explorer window)

windows key + pause / break = system properties window

windows key + "M" key will minimize all windows

windows key + "L" key = change user (vista only?)

windows key + "F" = search window

windows key + "D" key will show desktop

windows key + "R" key will open run box

If these are the kind of behaviours you are experiencing while typing (try typing some of the keys without holding the windows key down) you may have narrowed it down.
