The laptop is an MSI G43VR 7RE Phantom Pro. Either on start up or after a short period of use it will act as if the alt key is being held down, so I won't be able to type anything and clicking things gives results of what would usually be an alt+click. All sticky key settings are off.

I used a program called Sharpkeys to disable the alt button (which stopped me from being able to press it while things were working normally so I know it worked) but then after a while it still acted like alt was being held, so I know it is not a hardware issue like the key being stuck or needing to be cleaned. I have updated drivers and tried reinstalling the keyboard in device manager. It's definitely happening at a weird software level and I really don't know what to do. Please help!
