Random letter types when I type
I am running Windows 7 and I have a problem. Hopefully someone can help me

Every time I press any keys, the letter k will show up randomly.
example: "Kmy computkekr acts weirdly sometkimes because this k lettker pops up whken i kdont typkek kit. it evkekn shows up when i press thke arrow keys. also, it happekns sometimes when i press backspace so instekad ofk deleting lekttekrs it adds the lettekr k to whkat i want to be deleting.K"

What should I do? its a major pain when I type, especially typing out this post because I need to backspace every couple of letters. Also, when I try to type passwords in.

If this is a desktop computer, have you tried a different keyboard?

Is the K key free to move up and down? If it's partially stuck down it would explain a thing or two. If it's not that simple, a USB keyboard would prove whether or not the system is somehow at fault.

It's usually the toast crumbs wot dun it! Tip it upside down and pat it like you're burping a baby - and not much harder - that might reveal the offending blockage.
