    i became a member just to say thanks to an old thread, turn out its closed so ill just start a new thread
    (old: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-7/1025229-system-thinks-ctrl-key-pressed.html )

    First off i'd like to say thanks!

    pressing both CTRL then both shift then both Alt/altGr solved the problem.

    second i just want to add that this problem now surface on desktops.
    im using G400 mouse(mx518) on usb and qpad mk-55 pro keyboard(ps/2)

    i would not be surprised if it has something to do with failed RAM access or similar
    this problem arise after 3 weeks of just putting the computer into "sleep-mode" similar to what laptops do when you close the lid, i do not think putting it to sleep cause it, more enables the ctrl-feature to fail

    Ctrl is my walk button in FPS games, and is being spammed daily.

    What do you mean by spamming your ctrl button? I have only heard of spam email.

    Have you tried changing to another keyboard ?

    I get that a lot and it's some kind of keystroke that will make it look like CTRL is pushed... I had something like that for Final Fantasy :\

    yeah spam, as something that occurs frequently almost an automatic behavior, perheps "hammering" would suit better in this instance.

    haven't tried another keyboard, only happend once and the other thread solved it. And also the game that caused this was counter-strike 1.6(almost 13? years old game) bound to have some issues with new systems, kinda like dos/win32 games did not work on windows xp
