Solved My Keyboard isn't Functioning Properly

Specs: Windows 7
My keyboard isn't functioning properly... Whenever i press the spacebar.. it either exits a tab from the web explorer.. opens up the My Computer... or enters the letters "gh" on any text box i open up on the screen... Just now I'm havin trouble enterin this message. I had to open up the "On-Screen Keyboard" and click the spacebar there just to make spaces in between words. :(

There's also trouble in other keys on my keyboard... thankfully, there's none on the letters, ENTER and backspace. I personally think that it's because of a virus or something. I formatted the hard drive recently, but I know that a really BAD virus won't just go away that easily. Please help me... Any tips?

✔ Best Answer
I had this problem once.

I would press keys such as "R" and Run... would open, or "N" and the Narrator would pop up. This was after installing MW2 from Steam.

All I did was a hard reset (restarted from reset switch), after the POST pressed F8 to go into the advanced startup options and started from last known good, this worked for me, because it was my first restart.

If you have already restarted this may or may not work for you, you could also try (if all else fails) booting up in Safe Mode go into device manager, find your keyboard, and update or roll-back driver, try switching USB ports, or even if you have one, try another keyboard.

I remember trying to find an answer to this on google before and couldnt find anything so hope you manage to sort it out because I know how much of a pain in the ass it can be!
