    Need some help please!

    Don't know how it happened, but 2 weeks ago my keyboard enter (return) key is acting wierd.
    Every time I use the enter key the last application that I was using opens up.
    I tried everything. Did a restore for a month ago. Ran all my spyware and virus software.
    Looked to see if any of the software had a shortcut applied.
    Went to msconfig and looked at the startup tab.
    But nothing is helping.
    Any ideas or help I would welcome!
    I plugged in a new keyboard and it still happens so I know its not a hardware issue.
    Also the enter key by the numeric keyboard works without opening the last application, but it toggles the cap lock every time I use it.
    I downloaded the Microsoft keyboard creator program but I can't do anything with the ENTER key.
    Anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I dont know a ton about non-qwerty keyboards, but maybe your keyboard somehow got set to a keyboard type that is not yours?

    I would try going into device manager, uninstall the keyboard you have in there right now, and see what happens when windows auto-detects a new one.
