So this issue has just started to happen a few days ago. Essentially what happens my computer just changes everything on my keyboard and won't let me type. In addition, when I try and open applications it keeps asking to be launched in admin, when I try and restart my PC it goes to the blue screen ‘’Choose an option’’
Example of keys that I press and what opens:
Esc: Task Manger
Win: File Explorer

And when I disconnect my keyboard it's still doing running ''Shift'' key
I've tried a different keyboard and still had the issue. Also done a fresh system restore 2x now and it's still having the issue.

Ps: Had to use another computer to type this because it kept happening,

Also reinstalled all drivers

Edit: I have also tried ''Set up repair''. That came back with no results

Hmm, odd behaviour like this you'd imagine wouldn't be because of normal OS or programs.

Instead of reset, do a fresh reinstall. Boot usb created by Microsoft Media Creation Tool and install Windows this way, wiping the drive.

Just done a clean install. Still having the same issue. Definitely a wired one

Make and model keyboard?

Any installed "on screen" keyboards?

Do you have a touchscreen monitor?

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode to determine if the problem disappears?

Are you able to get to the Command Prompt and run "sfc /scannow"?

Keyboard: Corsair K55 also tried a Logitech K120

Not touch screen

Run CMD: ''Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations''

When I run in safe mode it's still the same issue. Sometimes I can't even type in my pin to log in.

My computer was on for 3 hours before the issue occurred today. Then it went away for like 30mins then came back again... :(
