What the hell is wrong with my keyboard?

I was here in the Other Forum trying to make a thread, and I realized something....my 'enter' key is doing something strange. First off, for the past few weeks when I would hit "enter" to make a new paragraph, the window I was typing in would automatically close itself. Now, my 'enter' key isn't working at all for emails or word documents. It still works if I type in a web address and hit 'enter'....that works fine. But here, and in email, I can't make paragraphs! Is this some sort of computer virus?

Ok, now I can hit the "enter" key again. But it still does the thing where it leaves the window that I was using when I hit 'enter'. Any suggestions?

i know this may sound like a smartass comment but maybe get a new keyboard or borrow someone elses to see if it works on your system.. if not then it's probably a virus

Is anything plugged in between your keyboard and your computer? I started having some problems last week when I had the Cuecat plugged in for too long...
