It may be sticky keys...

Press the shift button 5 times and switch them off.

Fingers crossed.

It really does sound like "sticky keys".

This is in the accessibility options in XP, and is created to make life easier for people with disabilities.

The page linked below will provide a script for you, it will do no harm to run it.
