Keyboard typing wrong characters IE 11

Specs: Windows 10
Hi, Just wondering if anyone got a fix for this? I have a laptop running windows 10 and IE11 since an automatic update if i type antthing in IE11, incorrect characters are typed, no pattern, type the same letter and each character produced is different. I have tried deactivating and reactivating IE11, updating the keyboard drivers, doing a repair on windows 10, ran Sophos; no threats.
Completely baffled.

Thanks for the reply, I have already tried resetting IE11 and tried a USB keyboard, ran a PC diagnostic; no errors, unfortunately can't troubleshoot Ie11 as it is a feature within Windows 10.
Might have to do a complete restore of Laptop, I imagine that will sort it out.
Interestingly my other PC has gone through same windows update without any oriblems,
Really weird; I can type normally into the address bar or search bar in ie11 toolbar but if I open a program eg bing or google the keyboard appears encrypted.
thanks for your reply
