Weird Keyboard Problem

#1
I built a pc last friday, and i have only one issue. I have Windows 8.1 64-bit, and when im trying to type something my keyboard starts to open programs. I think they are windows key shortcuts. But anyway my windows key isnt stuck because it works no problem with other computer. Please help with this,how can I fix it!

Normally those commands won't run unless you depress the Windows key at the same time. Check this web page from Microsoft which tells you how to disable it:

You could always try using the keyboard in a different USB socket as this can make a difference in some things. What kind of keyboard is it? Does it need drivers ect? What about the new system, is the bios updated and any new firmware updated for drives ect?

Hi,

Here's the link for the driver and firmware updates:
